Can People Be Triggers For Your Depression And Bipolar?

Can People Be Triggers For Your Depression And Bipolar?

I think so. Some days I'll be feeling fine, but then I run into someone who's in a bad mood and complaining and it brings my mood down. Or if someone criticizes me, that can bring me down too.

I also consider myself an empath, where I pick up easily on people's feelings, and when I do that I end up feeling what they feel, good or bad. That can be very exhausting, exchanging feelings and energy day in, day day out, everyday. So I often isolate and only go out as needed, because I'm still learning how to not pick up on everything people project outward.

Yes, it definitely doesn't help to be around someone who is badly depressed. If you can help them out of that slump, you both feel better, if not it can make things worse for you both.
