Depression is a very toxic thing if makes its way to any one of the person in a couple. It tends to eat the roots of the relationship as if it is an obligatory prey. But a little tolerance and putting thought at first can save any relationship. In this scenario, both the partners need to work equally hard if the other one is going through depression.

Here are ten most important things you need to remember and remind yourself of them again and again whenever any one of you is going through depression.

  1. First of all, you need to acknowledge that it is not their personal choice to be like that. It is not a very enjoyable moment for them; they also desperately want to get rid of this crippling situation going on back in their head.
