Communication will be vital in coming out of depression. It helps to identify with your peers when you are having a spell of depression so you do not feel alone. People can be ashamed of their problems because they dont feel that anyone has been in that situation before. Until you open up to people that you care about and they care about you and they explain that its normal to go through this and give you advice how they dealt with the same issue you have. Disconnecting will leave you alone with your thoughts of despair and darkness both which will do nothing to help you get better.

I had a friend that was very shook up when his wife left him for another man. He thought that nobody would respect him anymore that he wasnt married and that he was left of all things. He almost lost his job because he no called no showed for like a week and nobody could get a hold of him. I went over to his apartment and he was sitting on the couch surrounded by beer bottles and pizza boxes. He literally looked like a squatter in his own place. I cleaned him up and got him to come out to the bar down the street to have a drink and some wings with me. He said that he felt like his life was over and that nobody understand what he is going through. I kept him out of his house for like 3-4 hours and by the time we got back to his place he was feeling much better and I even helped him clean up his apartment. It took him another few days to shake it off totally but he is back in business. He has a new girlfriend that he says is the best thing that has ever happened to him and he could never be happier.Dont let your buddies self destruct when they are depressed. You have to go in and drag them back into life or they will never get over it.

Staying connected doesn't always fall on the depressed. It falls on the friends, family, and close people in their life. We need to make sure that we are paying close attention to our loved ones for changes in mood.
