I have been living with my mom for over 24 years now... she has been depressed all her life, my older sister too (she was obviously prone to it) now i am depressed... they gave me pills... i used to be so happy and calm... i ruined my life basically... is this possible?
Yes if you are around negative energy that will definitely effect you. If you're around positive people you will start to become positive. So just be around positive people, try to meditate. Write down what your feeling at the moment. You have to get back up, if you don't then you have ruined your life.
depression can simply be hereditary and often doesn't appear until later in life or until it is triggered. depression is a chemical and hormonal imbalance in the brain and likely has little to do with living with your family, though living with them may have triggered what was already there
i know mine was triggered in high school though it wasn't high school that caused it because i was happy there at first and there was nothing bad happening at the time
