How friendship can help depression

Part of being a person is about helping others.

The benefits of friendship for people that are depressed are astounding. Relationships, although not a substitute for professional therapy, can help people dealing with depression with their healing. Dr. Leaf says, “A strong friendship can help heal someone’s thinking habits and improve how the brain functions, helping them gain clarity into their situation, building up mental resilience and encouraging them to face and overcome what is causing them distress.”

Friendship is all about supporting each other in good times and in bad. Although depression can challenge a strong friendship, it doesn’t make it impossible for the friendship to continue. In fact, the friendship can be beneficial to both parties. Dr. Leaf explains, “Studies show that helping others can also increase our own healing by up to 63%! This is why it is so important to try to be there for a friend who is experiencing mental distress on both the person that is ill and the supportive friend.”

And being friends with someone who is depressed isn’t always so difficult. You may still be able to enjoy good times and meaningful conversation. As Bernat explains, “Despite what you might think, talking to friends and family living with depression can be easy and maybe fun. Not like Facebook-selfie-with-Lady-Gaga-at-an-underground-party fun though. Instead, I’m talking about the kind of fun where people enjoy each other’s company effortlessly, no one feels awkward, and no one accuses the sad person of ruining the holidays.”

we can bring change by helping each other, By showing these small kindness we can make this world a better place to live. Love people the way they are never ask them to change and help each other and support each other something it’s better to loose in arguments even if they are wrong because it can make them feel better.
