Team mascots in professional sports are supposed to hype up the fans, keep the momentum for the home team going, and haunt the eternal nightmares of all who witness them.

NHL team Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their new mascot on Monday. Meet Gritty.

Reaction online was mixed, to say the least.

Many were unsure of Gritty's wild orange fur, unblinking eyes, and how the second mascot in Flyers history threatened another iconic hockey mascot on social media almost immediately.



Wait...what?

Fan reactions poured in throughout the day, with many horrified by what this creature would bring to the sport.









Good luck sleeping tonight. Don't look under your bed.

That's where Gritty lives...

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
