Depression very common and it is estimated that between 10-20% of the population are suffering from it to some extent at any one time. Major depression is the number one psychological disorder in the western world*.
We can all feel down from time to time - feelings of sadness are quite normal. However, what is different about depression is that these feelings last for weeks or months, rather than days.
Depression can often surface in the context of relationships: death of loved ones, romantic and marital break-ups, betrayals by friends or authority figures can all significantly increase the risk of depression. Although, many clients that I see can also feel depressed or unhappy in the absence of any major triggers in their life. Sometimes feelings of depression can seem to come out of nowhere, without any clear outward cause.
The psychological causes of depression
Depressive thoughts and feelings are created or are made worse from how we think about ourselves and our lives. These interpretations will be filtered through our own beliefs and particular thinking styles. For example, when we brood or ruminate about negative things, this focus of attention on the bad/sad things in life will affect how we feel. A downward spiral begins as this very act of inward focus that actually creates and maintains depressive feelings.
Depression is also linked to feeling powerless. The feeling that we are unable to make changes and are stuck in life. Feelings of powerlessness or helplessness can be linked to a lack of belief in ourselves that we deserve more in life, or that more is achievable.
Very often, we are unware of the very thinking that is causing the depression, simply because we don't tend to notice our thinking: negative thoughts can become 'normalised' - we get used to having the same old negative self talk. Although we may be unaware of this process, it causes a huge amount of damage to our mood state...
