Being with someone who is struggling with something as big as depression can be tough. Not all relationships survive the depression. The burden to maintain the relationship is on the other partner and it’s difficult to maintain it without letting it affect your mental health. Being in a relationship with someone who has a mental illness cannot be easy but it’s not something you should run away from. It’s essential that you remember that your partner is not doing anything out of free will and he or she is simply struggling to keep their head out of the water and breathe. Every day is a struggle for them and they need you. Don’t run for the hills because things got a little difficult. Here are some things you should know if you’re dating someone who has depression.

1. Someone with depression has a negative outlook on everything. They are struggling with their inner demon and everything looks negative to them.

2. They may constantly feel unworthy of you and your love. They may feel that they don’t deserve anything good in life.

3. Depression can change a person. You may see some drastic personality changes in them and your partner is struggling to not let it affect your relationship.

4. Your partner does not want you to become collateral damage in his battle with depression.

5. Your sex life will be affected due to your partners' moods and medicines.

6. They may seem distant and aloof. They may use their behavior to push you away so that they don’t have to share their problems with you.

7. They push you away because they don’t want to be a burden on you. They know you did not sign up for the depression and they don’t want you to feel obligated to be with them through this.

8. They appreciate everything that you do for them. They are thankful to have you and your support.

9. They’re much more sensitive to emotions and words. Even the tiniest thing you say may hurt them more than expected.

10. They don’t want you to walk on eggshells around them. They don’t want to be treated differently but they expect a little sensitivity from you.

11. Healing is a long and hard process and it will take time. It won’t happen overnight and just because they smiled for a week and seemed happy does not mean that they don’t have depression anymore.

12. They may end up hurting you but they don’t want to do that. It’s not their intention. It’s not them, it’s the depression.
