Top 10 Worst Depression StereotypesDepression like anything else has it's own kind of stereotypes. These stereotypes are so damn overused that they get annoying. I do not approve of any of these stereotypes I'm just pointing them out and why these stereotypes are wrong. And this is commoning from someone that has severe depression.
The Top Ten
Sadness is a mental feeling of hurt or loss that we all feel sometimes.
Depression feels like a dense, black nothingness, It's an emotion that feels like the absence of emotion. We all feel depressed occasionally as well, but people with clinical depression feel this way almost all the time. This feeling of emptiness slowly breaks them down. They loose all energy and motivation to do things. They are completely unable to feel true emotion, and start thinking in a negative mindset. Some may have the strength to ignore their self-doubt for a little while, but the lies that the little voice in their head tells them slowly start to feel like truth. All they start to hear is their own self doubt telling them that they are useless, unlikable, annoying, invalid, unwanted, unaccepted, wrong, unfixable, and a burden to everyone around them. They start to believe the world would be a better place without them in it.
Yeah, depression and sadness are not the same. - Atham
They might be similar but they are not the same thing.
That's like saying to a cancer patient that they don't have cancer when they obviously do have cancer. You can't pretend that a illness doesn't exist to get rid of it because it doesn't get rid of the illness.
No they can't, they might temporaliry make someone not kill themselves but they overall don't cure the depression itself.
Blantantly false and trauma while it can emotionally hurt someone doesn't make them depressed.
NO just no...
No depressed people generally aren't emotional and rather can't feel anything regardless if it's happiness or love.
This is so false that I don't know where to start.
Also not true.
Again not true... and generally speaking it's a pathetic stereotype in general.
Not true not all of them self harm themselves.
