If you feel down because you feel like you have lost hope, you can just look for better ways that can help benefit your life. For an example a dog that is loved by his/hers owner passes on because of old age or some difficulties that hurt the dog, the loss of the dog will cause great impact to the owner so in which they feel very down or mentally hurt. Some people are hurt because they feel that they can escape the past. There are alot of ways to get back on your feet and you can be yourself again. Living in fear, agony, sadness, and sappy behaviors is not healthy for you. There can be other reasons why your down but there is an answer from others perspectives.
