If you are a depressed woman, you’re probably asking yourself why you feel so gloomy, what is the cause of your depression. First, you need to know that, as a woman, you’re two times more prone to depression than men. Female depression is different from male depression. Depressed men tend to blame others, feel angry, irritable; ego inflated, suspicious, guarded, restless, agitated, and create conflicts. While women tend to behave and feel just the opposite when depressed.
This means you’re probably lying somewhere in a fetal position, covered with blankets and pillows, hoping that everybody will leave you alone. You’re pondering over and over the same dark thoughts, like a broken record. You’re blaming yourself for the condition you’re in.
Feeling sad or blue from time to time doesn’t mean that you’re depressed. It only means that your life is like the life of any other human being; consisting of cycles when you’re feeling great and cycles when you’re feeling not so great.
On the other hand, if you are depressed, you’re overwhelmed with dark feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness. These feelings are often accompanied by guilt and shame. You feel like a black cloud is constantly hovering over your head.
