Depression is more prevalent mental illness in our time and presented in mild, moderate and severe. Modern life styles, social alienation and lack of strong family ties are key factors that either create or enhance a situation. The basic feature for detection of depressive symptoms is cognitive triad: 1) Negative thoughts about one. 2) Negative thoughts about society and the social environment 3) Negative thoughts about the future A man suffering from depression can have these three characteristics, or a combination thereof. The main symptoms of the disease are the following sentiments:
1) Inferiority (feeling low self-esteem - the others are superior to the same) 2) Sadness (feeling melancholy, which can be expressed by crying, isolation, sleep disturbances, etc.) 3) Guilt (feeling that blame for everything that happens and how it should be punished) 4) Irritable (sometimes there aggression, anger, etc.).
In very severe forms of depression can lead to thoughts and acts of self-punishment, self-harm, suicidality, or suicidal ideation and hallucinations occur.
Negative feelings of sadness, worry and frustration are common to all people. We are disappointed after a failure or sorrow after a separation or a loss. These negative feelings are normal and do not significantly affect our ability to respond to our daily obligations. We could even say that it is useful insofar as they help us to better understand some weaknesses of our character. The inure our sorrow and our train so we can face adversity dynamic that may arise later in life. The resulting self-awareness through the negative experience helps us to make efforts to change ourselves in order to avoid future negative consequences of immature behavior. If the sorrow rather than decreasing over time becomes more intense and lasts more than two weeks blocking the normal activities of normal life such as work, diet, sleep, and our close relationship then it is likely to suffer from depression and we need some special help to deal with it. This characteristic of depression is the presence of negative emotions, but the great intensity and their long duration.

Acceptance of weakness. If we can not help ourselves and all the efforts we make affect our position the best thing to do is to accept the more friendly is this weakness. Instead of trying to forcibly change ourselves, to reconcile with what we are, with what we feel and what we can. The sadness is reduced away from us but we can not accurately predict exactly when this will happen. The therapeutic course we will depend on many factors. No need to try to change that we can not change. Every time we do the best we can to help ourselves. But quietly and accept our weakness. We live with it. Live together more harmoniously as is the depression until we get rid of it. We do not like depression, but understand that it is futile to vigorously fighting since also at this stage of our lives what we lack is the strength, determination and fighting spirit. We accept the more calmly what is happening within us and around us and waiting to return our forces so that we can again behave dynamically. Since we can not make positive efforts it is better to live together in harmony with our grief.
