Why is depression increasing in youngsters? Know Answer
written by anshikadewani Student

Today, in this big world, everyone is busy with their problems, their work, and their schedule. Everyone is just running and running and nobody knows where to stop and with their busy routine, they all need someone who should give them time, who should sit with them, and who should fulfill their dreams, wishes, and expectations but this is not possible and their wishes cannot be fulfilled just because nobody has time and every person is concerned in solving their complicated life problems and earning money and to reach on the top.

 Expectations: In this condition, the person who was making expectations from the other person to fulfill their wishes and to give him time becomes sad and alone. He has no one to spend time with and to share his feelings. Due to this, his mind gets ample with loads and loads of negativity and loneliness starts devouring him, this is the reason which makes a person fall into depression. His loneliness, expectations from others, guilt, hopelessness makes him think that he is useless, nobody loves him and he cannot achieve anything. As this time comes, the person who is depressed needs a special person to share his problems and feelings. He needs someone who can leave money and all other life problems for him. He needs someone who has time to talk to him, who has time to listen to him, and who is capable of understanding his pain without making fun of it. 
But the only issue with this is every human being has expectations with other human beings and that another human being has expectations with somebody else. But the outcomes of expectations are nothing and when people do not find inner satisfaction, which can only be fulfilled by other people, their internal wish to live, ends. Carrying this loneliness, the depression starts cursing them even more. 
Everyone should understand that his expectations from other people will always break because everybody in this whole giant universe is carrying a burden of expectations and they also want somebody else to fulfill their expectations. 
When people do expect, they always get pain and that pain is unbearable.
The only option to skip this pain is that he should never keep expectations from others. He should not make assumptions too as they hurt more than the actual reality. Everyone should realize that the happiness and peace he is trying to search for in the whole world, exists inside him. The only person who can provide him satisfaction and peace is he, himself and he is the only one who is capable of full filling his dreams, expectations, and wishes. He should try to figure out his qualities, his weaknesses, and his strongness so that he can be capable of solving every small and every big difficulty by himself without expecting this from others to do it.

Peer pressure: Another major cause of depression is peer pressure in today's generation. We all want our lives to be perfect and happy and we all are influenced by other people's life. A comparison is made between our lives and their lives and this comparison is only possible just because of social media.
Social media has 2 sides. The constructive side is that we can gain more and more knowledge but it has a dark side too and that detrimental side of social media is that it obliquely leads us to the route of depression. When we visit other's profiles on any social media platform, we think that they all are so contented and blessed in their lives and our lives are so unhappy and awful. We think that why we cannot get this happiness and why are we not wealthier like them. But the whole truth does not end here. What is the probability that their whole life or whole day is cheerful and happy, what if the things we have seen in their profile, was just a small part of their whole day? What if apart from this part their life is too depressed. But we ignore this fact and become sad because we just want to live our lives exactly like them. We want to become rich and wealthier like them but Money, fame, and a luxurious life can only provide us temporary happiness and this will surely come to an end.

Pressure and comparison by Parents: Depression dominates a child when his parents force him to become like other children of his age. They compare their child with somebody else based on their marks, their skills, and their attainments. When the parents say dreadful words to the child, he starts being defeatist and then he starts thinking that he is useless and he cannot achieve anything in this life and this makes him decide that his life is not worthwhile and he should end his life.
Every parent should understand that every child is unique and has a special talent. It is not important that if their child is not good at studies then he cannot achieve anything. He has his strong point which cannot and should not be compared from others.
Depression is the seed of mental illness. The actual phase of depression increases when the fear that the difficulties which would be coming by our side, would be faced by us or not, will we be able to cope up with them or will we lose. So we try to give up without facing the difficulties and we start losing our interest in that particular activity due to which we are not able to achieve our target. 

This is the fact that difficulties are the part of our life and we should learn to face them because everything we do in our life is achieved only when we do so much hard work without giving up. 
We should defeat every problem of ours as we are capable to do it.
