Top 10 Reasons People Become DepressedI personally know people who struggle with depression, and they tell me their stories. This list is based off their stories, and my own personal knowledge about depression.
The Top Ten
I was in a deep depression state 8 months ago. Unnecessary for me to go into detail about it right now but this was a big factor along with others.
I've barely made any friends since I moved and can hardly socialize. I want to talk to someone in person, but just can't bring myself to meet new people.
I like being alone, but being depressed and dying alone is the worst thing for a depressed person

Yes, being sexually assaulted can be extremely mentally damaging... I'm not exactly sure how people can get depression because of this... Depression is constantly feeling that you're alone, sad, and that nothing will ever get better.

Not all emo's are depressed.
Here is a good example. I wasn't even interested in relationships at first, my first plan in life being to live as a single adoptive parent. But early on I come to discover I'm seen, for medical reasons, as legally unworthy to adopt. This set everything else in motion that puts me in my current situation. - UndaDaSea
True. A kid insulted another a few days ago then he looked sad. Why
Depressed does not mean sad. It's a state of near CONSTANT negative emotion. - Cyri
A lot of users in this site keep disrespecting marginalized groups and also opinions of others, they keep spreading negativity and compare other things too much. TheTopTens is a terrible site that actually cause people to become depressed and anxious nowadays. And I'm not referring this to all users who often use TheTopTens. I'm saying how this website strongly affects others and I suggest that you should not get affected by a website with a toxic community and don't dwell too much on it.
