Neurosis and psychosis are two terms we use to classify various psychological disorders. These two common terms are interchangeably used by many people these days.

We use word “depression” in our day to day lives for describing our emotional state. The word has become so common that we use this word even when we go through minor inconveniences. Have we really ever thought how a person who is going through major depression sees the world? Is it black or white for them or is it colourful at times? What is depression; is it just feeling sad or there is something more to it?
Have you ever been unable to complete your goals because your mind and body won’t cooperate with you? Have you ever felt extremely tired in the morning even though you just woke up?

Each and every person once in their lifetime goes through a heart break because of an end to a romantic relationship. Why do we see heartbreak as a phase that passes with a person moving on? Have we ever thought why heartbreak feels like it is an end to world or is there more to it than just crying. Whenever we see our friends going through something like this we advice them to move on and go on other dates. Does going on from one date to another really helps? Why does moving on feels so heavy?
Why did this happen? Am I unlovable or there is something wrong? We all have these thoughts after getting out of a romantic relationship. We all tend to question ourselves. Why do feel this way? We form our sense of self from experiences and self-esteem is a branch of self. Break up changes our concept of self that is an individual feels a significant drop in clarity of self.

“I would want to sit down in the classroom and be able to read the paragraph as instructed by the teacher. I desired to wait through my turn but would always find myself an object of laughter in class being interrupted by the teacher telling me to stay quiet as it’s not my turn yet. As much as it was good laugh for everyone, I would feel shamed deep inside and nothing that I would do could earn me words of praise from my teacher or parents. Look at him, he is behaving so good, why can’t you just sit in one place, you are a bad boy were common phrases in place of any words of reinforcement or appreciation.”
