It is easy to get your panties in the twist

It is so easy to get carried away with feelings. Trying to figure out “what exactly did they say” or “what did they mean”. Social media and the types of conversation we have online easily add another layer to this.

Often it is our own judgement that leads us on, when it comes to taking offence to something, someone has said.

Here are some tips that you can use in your life that will help you stay calm, comprehend and avoid dramatic situations.

The term depression was derived from the Latin verb deprimere meaning to press down. How do I know if I am depressed? Some of the obvious signs affected are your thoughts, moods, changes to your sleep patterns and appetite and a low self-esteem. It’s different from just feeling a little sad or a bit down for a few days. It may feel as though you have fallen into a pit and can’t seem to find your way out. You may experience feelings of helplessness and hopelessness and it becomes a struggle to motivate yourself on a day to day basis.
