Depression really can strike anyone, it's not choosy, you can be a successful superstar and still have feelings of hopelessness or pointlessness or low moods.

I have been putting off starting this blog since I don’t know when, there always seems to be something more pressing to do. Many of us feel under pressure from time to time and think that we simply don't have enough time to get things done. This pressure can be caused by study or work expectations, family commitments all rolled in together and is usually in combination with high self standards. When we don't meet these standards we end up comparing ourselves to others who appear to effortlessly get the job done and it can all feel a little hopeless. We can be our own hardest task masters.
