One of the best things you can do for yourself is to surround yourself with the right kind of people. These can be people who are fun or intelligent or hilarious.

When you're making new friends, it can be easy to find someone who seems nice at first, but turn out to be different than you imagined.

Sometimes this can be made very obvious. However, other times, these signs are very subtle.


As long as you pay attention, you should be okay. However, it also helps that Redditor my-dogatemy-chancla asked:

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.
