Its a constant state of mind where nothing can make you feel any better. Its something that can really conflict and limit the way you live and your life in general, and just feel like the world is turning around you and you can't do anything. You have no idea why you are so scared of nothing and feel like you're being choked and nothing seems rational. You're stuck in this state of mind where you don't want people to see you like that, and yet you can't seem to snap out of it.Depression has long been debated by experts with conflicting rationales for various circumstances. With the shocking death of Chester Bennington, frontman of the Grammy Award winning rock band Linkin Park, the debate has now become more intense and is headed towards a 50/50 split decision. Is depression a choice? It depends on the kind of depression we are talking about. If it's the human emotion of being depressed which has cause and effect, then yes. You have the power to choose whether you will be in that state of mind. On the other hand, if we are talking about a chemical imbalance due to psychological changes in the bodies brain activity, then NO, a person does not have a choice but it can remedied with the help of doing the little things that bring positivity in your life, such as proper diet, regular physical activities, abstaining from mood altering chemicals and therapy. Others may argue that depression is caused by genetics. A common trait found among persons with depressive tendencies - including suicide - are excess serotonin receptors in the brain. Because of it, people who are affected by it requires higher quantities of serotonin (and other similar chemicals) than the average person to stabilize their mood. The only way to acquire excess serotonins is to be born with them. Environmental factors can definitely contribute to a depressive personality, thus it is possible to be born with a predisposition to this disorder, just like schizoprenia, autism, ADHD or any similar condition.
