2. Withdrawal

Disassociating from close friends and relatives is a tactic that allows those suffering from depression to hide their feelings and suffer in silence. If you notice these signs, don’t take it personal or pull away immediately. Ask questions and show concern to make sure there isn’t a deeper issue.

4. Unusual Mood Swings

Defensiveness or frequent lashing out is a way to avoid authentic connection and hide true feelings. Give them space to cool down, but definitely communicate your feelings about their behavior. Be a safe place, but also create boundaries if it becomes consistent.
