Posted On 02 Feb 2017 By : 
 It’s no secret that intimacy and relationships are the most important part of life.

The 9 Signs of Hidden Depression

How to help a person that has developed hidden depression – If you notice that one of your loved ones or someone close to you has developed one or more of the symptoms that we mentioned here, the best solution is to talk to them first and offer help, try to talk about the things that are bothering them and remove the masks. In such a conversation it is important not to try to minimize the value of the person’s problems or joke about them in order to ease the situation, but take them seriously – try to genuinely help them, by really touching on the problems they’re dealing with and not with empty words like “cheer up,” “just relax,” or “stop acting like that.” In any case, if the person in front of you refuses to talk, don’t try to force them, but keep an eye on their behavior. Be attentive, and let the person dealing with the problem feel that you are here for them.     From BabaMail
