Person 1: I am going through depression.
Person 2: There is nothing like depression.
P1: But I am going through it.
P2: It’s just a state of mind. Cope up with it.

It’s a conversation full of negativity but it’s the truth that we as society, is unable accept depression as a serious issue; and rather helping the depressed the person we tag him/her as a coward.
