When we notice that our friend is sad and not talking we usually ask him/her if he/she is OK. If they answer that there is nothing wrong we soon forget about it and forget to check if he/she is feeling better.
If this happens often with someone you love, then this person may suffer from depression and you are not able to recognize the signs.
Your loved one may feel too embarrassed to talk about their mental health as sometimes is very difficult to explain the symptoms of depression.
Deepika Padukone’s foundation released a video which encourages people to always care about their loved ones and be sure that they are doing OK.
After this video you will have plenty of things to think about and you will surely become more empathetic. Watch the video below:
Next time you notice someone close to you is sad just be more empathetic.
