Sadness and depression are words we all are familiar with. So, if you feel sad, low or depressed sometimes or most of the time, the first thing I want you to know is "IT'S ALL GONNA BE OKAY".

You are a human, you have a right to feel what you feel. If you feel low on some days, it's alright to feel it that way. Nothing is wrong with you, its just how you feel on that particular day or moment.

But, if you feel low or sad all the time, that for me is a bit of concern.
If you feel low for no reason and you just let yourself be sad, that's wrong too!

If there is a reason that is making you feel sad, and you just don't let go of that thing, even that's wrong.

Sadness and feeling low can be counted as a mood which may be for a little while.
But, if it kind of stays with you for long and then it may turn into depression.
