7 Things you should NEVER say to someone with depression

“Shake it off” – Instead, you could say – “I’m sorry you’re not feeling well. Is there anything I can do to help?”

“It’s all in your head” – Instead, you could say – “I will try my best to understand.”

“No one ever said life was fair” – Instead, you could say – “I can see that you’re struggling, and I’m proud of you for pushing through this.”

“You should get out more” – Instead, you could say – “Would you like to go for a walk with me?”

“Get over it” -Instead, you could say – “How can I support you during this difficult time?”

“You just want attention” – Instead, you could be friendly and offer your friendship by offering to have lunch together or spend quality time doing an activity.

“You are dragging me down” – Instead you could say – “I’m here for you”
