Sadness vs. Depression

Life is tough. Dealing with disappointments, setbacks, and loss leads to sadness. It is natural and normal to feel sadness from time to time. The key is to identify when you are feeling stuck in a cycle of sadness and prevent crossing into the territory of depression.


It is important to learn how to handle sadness and not get stuck:

  • Know your triggers

  • Recognize warning signs

  • Reach out to someone for support
