Spending too much time in chat rooms and on social-networking sites? A number of studies now suggest that this can be associated with depression, particularly in teens and preteens. may struggle with real-life human interaction and a lack of companionship, and they may have an unrealistic view of the world. Some experts even call it \”Facebook depression. \”
In a 2010 study, researchers found that about 1. 2% of people ages 16 to 51 spent an inordinate amount of time online, and that they had a higher rate of moderate to severe depression.
However, the researchers noted that it is not clear if Internet overuse leads to depression or if depressed people are more likely to use the Internet.
Nothing ever happens coincidentally, there is always a reason especially when it comes to emotions and feeling. You just aren\’t aware of the cause of your depression. Many cases its a lack of human interaction and I dont mean you daily small talk. Actually sharing what is going in your life with friends and family and connecting with them.
Another reason could be a lack of self-love and self-esteem. There are numerous reasons for feeling depressed, finding the reason and accepting whatever it may be is the first step to achieving happiness. Remember, happiness comes from within the heart, not from external sources, those are otherwise temporary and conditional sources of happiness.
