We can define depression as a deterioration in emotions, thoughts, behaviors and physical symptoms.
It would be appropriate to set aside all scientific concepts in order to elaborate on depression and to get more into this pale picture.
The person in the pale picture is really pale, pale. You may agree on the color of an object, but different results may arise about its hue. It would be appropriate to say “depression glasses”. However, the person did not wear these glasses voluntarily, and his own effort to remove them may be insufficient. First of all, we should know that depression is not a “nasty” that a person does to those around him.
Some of the observable symptoms are; It is actually an unmotivated process in the form of pessimism, hopelessness, a world of thought woven with negative thoughts, helplessness and not being able to enjoy anything. It is the supporting motivation in creating one’s future.

Is it the way I look at my reflection in the mirror has changed or have I really changed? Were the lines on my face so clear, did they say I’m here? When I smile, the lines that appear on my cheek seem to have moved to the corners of my eyes, which I look at with sadness. At the same time, how can the future be beautiful in the face of the past, which is not heartwarming at all, I am not in a hurry for anything, as if my actions and thoughts are always hopeless and long-term. I just eat to live. There comes a time when even living loses its meaning and I want to end my life. (example is text)
