Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t beat it through sheer willpower, but you do have some control—even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent.
If symptoms persist beyond 2 weeks, it is recommended to seek help from a qualified mental health practitioner.
The key is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day.
