Don’t suggest to depressed people the things you do to feel better when you’re sad. Depression and sadness are not the same thing. Your proffered solutions, though you may mean well, just serve to make the depressed person feel more isolated and hopeless.
How many people know you? I mean really know you. Beyond your favorite color, favorite book, or favorite song. Who knows what lurks in the depths of your mind, what captivates your soul, and why? Who knows your passions? Your fears? Your desires? Who knows all these things about you and accepts you anyway?
