Depression And Its Effect On Its Family Life We all know how depression can have the capability of destroying the life of a person. It is a mental disorder from which many people across the world suffer from, and it has a very negative effect on their lives. Depression not only can make the life of the patient miserable but also of the people surrounding them. It is a horrible mental disorder that sucks out the happiness from the life of the person and pushes him or her in a void of sadness and despair. Depression can also destroy the peace and happiness of a family, and if even one individual is affected by the disorder, it has a direct or indirect impact on all the members of the family. Here are some of the negative impacts that a family has to suffer due to the depression of a family member. They do not interact socially The first thing that depression does is that it cuts off the social interaction of the people and induces a tendency of isolation. They have no interest in speaking or interacting with the people in the outside world and are confined within themselves. They either lock themselves up in their room or sit quietly in a corner for hours. A depressed person even doesn’t speak to their family members and avoid any conversation with them. It inserts a gloominess and anguish in the atmosphere of the house, whereby all the family members get mentally disturbed by the behavior of the depressed person, and the peace of the house gets hampered ultimately. They get irritated A depressed person can get irritated or annoyed, even on minor things, which might not be so important at all. As they are already disturbed due to depression, anything that happens against their will or wish triggers anger and irritation in them, which can make them burst out in rage. The recurrent display of anger or irritation by the depressed person also makes the mind of other family members sour, which leads to clashes and quarrels among the family members. It is yet another negative impact of depression that a family has to face. They lose interest in a romantic relationship Romance and sex is the last thing that can come in a depressed person’s mind since they lose all interest in romantic relationships. They do not make love with their spouse and even avoid interacting with their partners. It can have a very negative impact on the marital and romantic relationship of the people when they are affected by depression. It can lead to separation among couples and even divorce, which ultimately affects family life negatively. They talk about death or even attempt suicide It is the most extreme stage of depression where people lose all interest in their life and think that death is the only way out of their misery. They often speak about death and also try to kill themselves by attempting suicide. It can have a devastating effect on the family of the depressed person as it can leave a deep and undesirable impact on them.
