Whoever said that life isn’t fair always was pretty spot-on. Material happiness is important. But the relentless pursuit of it sometimes has a flip side, even if it keeps you seemingly happy in the short term. A person may not realise it, but there are consequences of a busy schedule on every other sphere in life – may it be on the family, marriage, work, or even on mental health.
Sometimes, depression may crop up even if we are under the impression that everything is going smoothly, making it a particularly dangerous problem to ignore or brush off. There may be mental health or incompatibility issues that you need to address. And when it comes to helping, healing, and working things out, therapy comes in handy.
