As we wave goodbye to summer, and we await the golden colors of fall, many people look forward to the cozy nights in, the fun of Halloween, as well as the festive season just around the corner. Having said that, not everyone looks forward to these darker nights.
When you’re living a life affected by depression, any small change can make life seem even harder. Summer isn’t a walk in the park either, but the lighter nights and the seemingly endless sunshine may help you feel slightly more lifted. When the nights start to draw in, it gets darker earlier and seems to last longer until morning, grey skies roll in and colder temperatures arrive, it’s easy for mood to go on the decline once more.
Don’t Let Depression Ruin Your New Season
It’s very difficult to tell someone with depression that they shouldn’t allow their condition to affect a new season full of opportunity, because if it was as easy as saying ‘oh okay, I’ll be fine now then’, everyone would be doing it, and depression wouldn’t even be a thing. Depression is a serious and debilitating condition, and one which can range from mild, right over to very severe. The slightest change in conditions can signal a decline, but the most important thing? Being aware of that possibility and seeking out help.
Not everyone with depression goes to see their doctor for help. The reason behind this could be absolutely anything, such as not realizing that they’re depressed and simply thinking they’re a bit down, not wanting to admit they need help, or not wanting to be a burden. There is no reason in the world for you to put up with the symptoms and effects of depression, whether mild, moderate, or severe. You do not have to ‘put up with it’, you do not have to live with it, there is help out there.
Why not make a brand new season a great excuse to change your life? Those darker nights don’t have to be gloomy, they can be the catalyst for change, positive change.
