If you have depression, you may blame yourself and think that somehow you caused this condition or should be able to pull yourself out of it. But being depressed is not a failure on your part. You are not to blame for it, and you aren’t weak because you can’t “just snap out of it.” Depression is a disease—and like many other diseases, it responds to treatment. Many different forms of treatment are available. The key is to find balance: balance in your life, and the right balance of depression treatments.
