Suffering from depression goes beyond just dealing with tough situations or being in a bad mood because of a bad day or a disappointing encounter. Can you remember a time that you did not get what you want or did not achieve any of your major dreams? Yes, I can for myself, it happens a lot, not only for you, but also for me, for one of your friends, or anyone else in your life!
So, here I write a couple of things that can change your mood. These are tips that I use:

Believe in learning from life’s experiences
If you fall down one a day. Do not cry over spilled milk. Take it easy and try to deal with it in a nice way! You will learn something new from these unsuccessful experiences to add to your life. So, thank God for the failure and try to understand the message behind the failure! I am the kind of person who believes that everything in our lives happens for a reason. So, try to be more optimistic and give yourself a fresh perspective by learning something new there!
