There is no particular target age for Depression. Certain circumstances or situations can result in depression. Fortunately, treatments are available for the same.


Tragedies are inescapable throughout our life. We should have the potential to deal with them. Things like a passing of a friend or family member, a divorce, so on are hard to deal with. And whatever we can do is just move forward in life. These things are a part of life. Just unpredictable and inescapable. In any case, as is commonly said, time heals everything.

    • Tie the knot by late 20s and so on.

Sadness is a human feeling that all individuals feel at specific situations amidst their lives. Feeling sad is a natural response to certain circumstances that may cause pain. But like other emotions, sadness is for short period and vanishes with time.
