On depression,expectation and misunderstanding...

So what really happens to a normal, bubbly , girl-next-door person to suddenly become so vulnerable? What really goes wrong with a person whom you know was really "normal" the last time you saw them and the next you know they are seeing a shrink or maybe just have dark circles under their eyes.. let me not go to cases extreme than this...
Its all about expectations, ain't it? No matter how much we try and tell ourselves to give but not expect anything in return, we are human beings and obviously, we expect... When we know that a misdeed of ours hurt us back, we , but obviously, expect a good deed to bring back love, encouragement, but when that doesn't happen, it hurts. Then starts a series of misunderstandings and if one is sensitive and a slave of mind (now not everybody can master their mind, atleast I cannot) they fall prey to depression. And believe me, depression is bad. Not only does it give you a dual behavior , cause you cannot show the entire world that you are depressed, it also makes you do things you other wise won't.And its a vicious circle, it takes an entire lifetime to undo and erase things one does when depressed. It's the time of ones life when one needs everybody to stand with them and love them unconditionally, but that doesn't really happen. Sad but true, we see a lot of people now a days in the bounds of depression, and given the current lifestyle, you cannot really talk and tell people how you feel. More than half of them hear just for the sake of and the rest make fun.
But then sometimes you are lucky enough to find that ray of hope, who'd stand by you.. talk a gentle word, try heal your wounds and pull you out of the dark corner..
