Depression in a marriage can deepen other issues. If one or both partners is working through depression, support of each other is vital. Examples of support include active listening, encouraging words, and a willingness to help the other work through some of the tasks and responsibilities of daily living. If you or loved one is dealing with chronic depression, medical care is a must. Do not hesitate to seek the input of doctors, psychologists, and/or social workers. Please listen to the advice professionals offer to you.

Depression should never be ignored. It is a sign that something is seriously wrong in your life. It can be anger turned inside onto yourself. You may have been taught that anger is wrong and therefore you don’t allow yourself to feel rage. The first step is to go to a doctor ad get medication if necessary. Depression can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain which needs to be rectified with medication. Depression can help you to become strong enough to address the underlying issues that are causing the depression.
