only is it awful it itself but there is an added problem. Which is that people around you do not understand, even if you are able to try to explain it to them and ask them for support. Unfortunately, the word is used too freely and has been bandied around a lot recently with a lot of famous people and celebrities claiming to have it over the slightest things when in actual fact the truth is that they simply were unhappy about a hiccup in their life or things did not run as smoothly for them as they usually do. You only have to open a newspaper or magazine to see a headline that states something along the lines of CHERYL COLE DEPRESSED BECAUSE SHE MIGHT NOT GET X FACTOR JOB and you will see what I mean. When someone who is young, healthy, fit, good looking, famous, rich and adored says it is the end of the World when one thing goes wrong they are not getting things in proportion and it would be ridiculous to say they are ill! They are seeking a perfect World where every day is fantastic. Being upset about not getting another three million dollars when you are very rich, have your health and your looks and the love of may is not about being ill, it is about being spoilt.
So – strange as this may seem – the first thing you should do is make sure that it really is this that you are coming with and not being unhappy or put out because something did not go your way. The real thing will be with you for ages, not just one day and then go, and it would not come purely because of one little thing. When someone claims to be feeling it because it is raining or they have no spending money that week that is simply wanting life to go the way they want all of the time.
