I think I’m depressed. But I can’t tell anyone. How do I know if I am even actually suffering from depression?
Hello dear, depression is a proper term used for as a mental disorder, having several symptoms like continuous sadness, loosing interest in day to day activities, and a lot more. According to me, try to perform certain activities to gain interest and explore new areas like expressive arts. This is a huge field with a lot of underlying therapies like go for dance, visual art, listen to music or try a bit of theatre. The atmosphere is such that we all at some or the other point go through the same condition but there are a lot of activities available to actually get busy and change your schedule in a positive way. Rest i suppose you can search for the symptoms and if you feel you have certain of them, please go and check a psychologist or concerned person
Okay so, I’ve been randomly having bouts of sadness. I’ll be sitting in office and randomly burst into tears for no good reason. I don’t feel like getting out of bed sometimes and working or doing anything to be honest, it’s a constant effort. But it’s not like this everyday, some (most) days are good but those few down days seem a little off to me. Are these pre cursors to depression? Or is this just the pandemic taking the better of everyone?
So basically having a day or two of such situations where you feel sad or stuck are not really the symptoms. But yes, if it increases please go and check a professional person.
Also, the environment is keeping all of us in the same way, it’s just that how we take the situation and look forward towards life. Look more towards the happy and good days, start with some basic expressive arts activities like relaxation techniques, doodling, journaling or free style dancing, you will feel better.
My boss is inappropriate with me and I don’t know what to do about it. He’s a great mentor but he just says really flirty things sometimes. What can I do?
Please feel free to ask any question in the field if expressive arts. I apologise but i wont be able to answer the above question

How do you seem so yoing and so accomplished…I can’t make up mind for anything and my goals seem too far out of reach to accomplish.
There no big deal in accomplishing all our goals but yes, take a diary and try writing all your goals and motives in your life. Once you have written, focus on it and try to incorporate it in Your schedule slowly, you will reach your destination, practice art and writing to be more focussed and attentive towards the goals of your life.

can i have avoidant personality disorder even if i just have some specific syntoms or is just social anxiety?
I have issues talking to my closest people and i’m always hiding my emotions. I have a lot of fear to their rejection and cry a lot for the tiniest of critics even if they’re constructive. But personally internally i don’t feel worse than anyone i feel good with myself i’m just afraid that people will abandon me.
Please feel free to ask any question in the field of expressive arts. I apologise for not answering the above question
I don’t know why but I am not feeling well after my breakups
