I think it might be depression

I was talking to my boyfriend over the weekend and he admitted to me that he has not ever been happy. He asked me what makes me happy and I told him that I like to feel wanted and needed. Thatís what makes me feel happy. He said that he has not been happy a day in his life. He has felt content, but nothing has really made him happy. He also said that if we ever broke up that he would feel devastated.
I donít know what to think of this. I donít feel like I could ever be fulfilled as a person and his girlfriend if I feel like nothing makes him happy. Any comments on the subject.

Re: I think it might be depression

Yeah it's depression most likely and he should seek help. I have something similar and am in the process of sorting myself out.
Don't think that it's somehow your fault for not making him happy, it's very hard to change a depressed persons state of mind, there is something very deep within his mind, which is causing this, and he will need help either with medicine or therapy to overcome it and that will take time.

And you will need to be there for him, to support him. He has already noted he is grateful for having you, so you have already been a huge help.

It's hard for people who have not had depression to understand a depressed persons state of mind.
