If you simply look up the definition of depressed, you’ll get something that resembles ‘a state of unhappiness or despondency’.
Like everything, there are levels to this thing.
There’s feeling depressed and then there’s being depressed, with 'being' striking much deeper at your core, hijacking your entire identity.
To feel depressed is to carry with you a great despair
A dark cloud
A sense of oppression
A sense of helplessness
You see no beauty when feeling depressed, nothing seems meaningful
You’re more inclined to just go through the motions;
doing the bare minimum - if you do anything at all.
It’s a spiral downwards that suggests no end in sight,
