Entrepreneurship and Depression - Depression is real!

Depression is real! Deal with it! Not many people talk about it. May be people should. I see so many depressed entrepreneurs around me. We need to have a structure to help them out. There is shame and stigma attached to talking about depression. In fact, one in every four people suffer from anxiety and depression. Being sad and being depressed are two different things. Also, people going through depression don’t look so, while someone sad will look sad. The most common reaction is, ‘How can you be depressed? You have everything going for you.’ It’s not about what you have or don’t have. People talk about physical fitness, but mental health is equally important.
