In many cases depression is caused by a combination of both tough external events and the tendency to become depressed. A tough external event is usually a problem that doesn't seem to have a solution like losing your job or the loss of someone you love.
Many people do the mistake of trying to escape from their problems instead of solving them; they do whatever they can to avoid tackling the problems or to avoid solving them.
As a result some of them escape to drugs and other types of addiction while Another group get involved in relationships just to forget about their problems. By doing these things those people think that they are solving their problems while in fact they are just making them bigger.
Not only such actions result in delaying the problems but they also allow the accumulation of more problems together. The first step you should take to prevent depression is to never allow your problems to accumulate that way.
Never try to escape from your problems but instead try to solve them before they pile up and lead to depression. If you can't solve your problems alone then seek someone’s help, ask others to support you or pray to god to help you. In short, do whatever it takes to solve your problems instead of escaping from them because certainly that will lead to depression.
