Tips From This Kindle Book About Coping With A Depressed Person
1. Let Them Feel Your Presence
The best and most important thing that you can do for your loved one is to be there for them. This is because when someone is struggling with depression, they feel alone. They want to isolate themselves from the rest of the world. They won’t listen to any advice, nor do they want any help with their problems.
Times when they want to be left alone are when you have to make your present be felt. Let them feel that you’re there for them. Assure them that whatever it is they’re going through, you will be behind them 100%.
Sure, they won’t listen to anything you say, or any advice that may come from you, but they will appreciate it if you assure them that they are not alone.
Doing this can make a whole world of difference for someone who is suffering from depression.
2. Start Small
There are many ways for you to show support to a loved one that is suffering from depression. You can always tell them that you love them and that you are behind them 100%. You can also do small things.
Small things, though, well… small, are important. Gestures such as hugging them, telling them that everything will be fine and something as simple as saying “I love you” is enough to brighten up their day.
In fact, your very words of assurance could become their beacon of light, something that helps guide them through the darkness that is depression.
3. Never Judge or Criticize
Everything that you say to someone suffering from depression has a big effect on them. This is even more true given that both of you are in a relationship.
It’s very important that you watch what you say. Avoid statements like telling them that they’re being too negative, that things are just going to brighten up, that everything is just happening inside their head, or saying that they’re overreacting. Such words, while perfectly normal for you, will only make them feel a lot worse. This is especially true because it’s coming from you, their boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse.
To put it simply, avoid saying anything that might come off as criticism. Not only will this make them feel a whole lot worse, but this will jeopardize your whole relationship too. And when your relationship is on the rocks, your loved one will only feel a whole lot worse.
