Lack of potential to discover life: One may remain in dilemma about his/her own life and thus fail miserably in the discovery of one’s life. Sometimes negative thoughts like life is all about meeting with complete failures creep up in the mind while at other times it seems to be quite ok and rolling on.

Hatred towards one’s life: Useless thoughts may sidle like “I would have achieved more from life or I would have succeeded more but I failed miserably” surrounds one’s thought and imagination. Besides, thoughts like “how long will I have to carry on my life?” may get into one’s nerve.

Giving more importance to other’s opinion: While It is good to give importance to other’s thoughts and opinions but it is not advisable beyond and extent. In depression, one tends to give more importance to what others have to say about certain things and circumstances.
