i don’t know if am depressed but i do know i have really bad anxiety which at times becomes very unmanageable, i think i might need some professional help ,but i don’t want to worry my parents!
Therepy is not just about treating something you might have, it is also about making sure your mental health is in the best shape. So I would say go for it. Explain to your parents how you feel and what your motivation behind taking profesional help is and I’m sure they’ll understand.
Anxiety or depression is a symptom of an internal disturbance…could be different reasons…so trying to address these reason from the root level is important…a therapist can be of a big help here…
