Depression sucks. It knocks you down, makes you not want to be around other people, and can cause havoc in your life…and if you are a dad, then it also certainly affects other people around you…specifically your kids.
That’s often the last thing we want to happen but it does. You might be feeling Dad depression because of financial strain, relationship issues, your job, or a combination of many things. You may feel you are not good enough or should be better. Whatever the reason, I’m telling you, you can get out of it.
I do want to make a disclaimer. I’m not a doctor or a licensed therapist so this information I’m sharing with you is my opinion based on my own experience. If you are having thoughts of suicide or hurting others, please get help immediately.
But In this video, I wanted to talk about dad depression. Why do so many men suffer from it and how can you get out of it.
