7. Postpone your marriage idea

If both of you are planning for your marriage, then the most important suggestion is DON’T! Now, this is not the right time to get married. Drop the idea and focus on your lover’s mental issue. Some depression stays for a lifetime, and clinical depression can be healed through proper medication, love, and support.

If you lose your focus now, you’ll be terminated from your company. So, don’t compromise when it’s about your bright future. True love will wait for you, but your career will not wait for anything. So, as an expert, the humble suggestion is to be focused on your career.

9. Feeling hopeless for your depressive lover?

This is genuinely normal to feel sad when your lover is not in a good mental state. You will not feel good about your love life. The shocking fact is your lover will not be the same person you used to know. There will be some changes in love and as well as in your sex life as your partner won’t respond in the same way. Break up proposal is also very common from your partner’s side. He or she doesn’t want you to leave you, but they will apparently tell you to end the relationship mutually. Maybe, it makes you feel sad, but it is a temporary phase. You have to be positive and lead your life naturally.

10. Engage your lover in various activities

A depressive person doesn’t want to face the real world, and so, as your partner. But, staying at home without any activity makes him or her an idle brain. So, if your partner is not doing anything professionally, then you should encourage him or her and suggest them to do something creative. Any kind of creative activity will make your partner busy. Maybe she loves to sing; then, you should tell her to learn new instruments and compose some music. If your boyfriend is a talented painter and left painting for his career, then you should buy some canvas and colors for him as a cheerful gift. If a depressive person does smoothing creativity, he or she will not feel alone. Meantime you can focus on your own career and life too.

I hope this article gives you some serious suggestion on the relationship and bring happiness in your love life!
