Some people are afraid that their parents will judge them, not understand them or disown them.
I totally understand how scary it is to speak openly or tell people how you feel and what your symptoms are, believe me, I know how petrifying this experience can be.
So how do you tell your parents and your family?
The mistake that many people make is simply to tell them that I am depressed and that is all, if you tell them that they will not fully understand how you feel and sometimes they may think that you are not depressed because you have not explained it. Anything for them.
Feel them, be in an environment that is comfortable for you, explain everything, I am not only depressed, do not even mention the word depression to start, mention how you feel, how you feel. Day by day, talk about your symptoms, why you think you may feel this way and then tell them you think you are depressed.
This way, they can see how he feels, his symptoms, how it is affecting him and better understand why he thinks he is depressed.
The same goes for your friends, don't tell them I'm depressed, treat your friends the same way you would with your family.
What about a therapist?
Keep in mind that the therapist is there to help you, you cannot help him if he does not know how he feels.
