23. Unhappy individuals are always ready for the worst.
Depressed people are always prepared for the worst to happen. Instead of being hopeful and looking for the silver linings, they always and only expect the worst to happen. They may tell you that they’re just realistic about expectations, but you should realize that something is wrong when those expectations are still negative. It might be time to sit down and talk with them, but don’t force things if they don’t seem interested. Depressed people can get somewhat defensive about their emotions.
Unhappy individuals tend to have a negative mindset already. They may struggle with seeing the positive or having faith because they do not want to face more disappointment. It becomes easier to think that the worst will occur from the beginning rather than facing it down the road.
