How does depression affect relationships?

Ok. I had depression for three years, and it was pretty severe. I don’t know whether you are talking romantic relationships or friendships, so I’ll cover both. Romantic Relationships. When I was depressed, I found that my relationships didn’t last very long. To my surprise, I was the one who ended them for the most part. I felt like the relationship was empty. I couldn’t really find the strength to be cute and cuddly. When i was dumped, I have a feeling it was because I was using my boyfriend as a support crutch, and not a boyfriend. Friendships I began to attract depressed people. The friends I origanlly had started to get blue. It seemed to me that I started dragging my friends down, slowly. I still had them until it got really bad. Then they told me they couldn’t be around me anymore. All in all, relationships take a lot of work, even when everything is going fine. When your depressed, relationships can take 100 times more effort….it’s hard. You barely ahve any energy to take care

Depression strains relationships.  A depressed person is probably going to be saturnine, demoralized, cynical, hopeless, sad and lonely, tired and fewer funs to be around.  Depressed folks generally complain lots. They assert negative things concerning what’s wrong with their life, their work, their families, and with their partners. They sometimes have flat emotions, withdraw from their important relationships, and so they’ll say or do things that square measure remarkably insensitive, hostile, angry or uncaring. If you’re the depressed partner, here’s a suggestion about what you can do serelax reviews.
