Depression CounselingHaving no energy, no motivation and feeling terrible about yourself and life?
Everyone experiences sadness at times. But depression is something more. Depression is extreme sadness or despair that lasts more than days. You may find yourself extremely tired even though you had a good night’s rest or decline friends and families invites to social gatherings. Your self-esteem has hit rock bottom and you believe there is nothing worthy about yourself.
Nothing seems to give you joy anymore and you catch yourself zoning off and feeling indifferent. Maybe you put on a happy face and pretend everything is okay, but underneath it all you’re struggling to get through the day. You are not alone and don’t have to fight this battle all by yourself.
