Does depression affect “Old Souls” the most?

For those of you who were always told they’re old souls when growing up, how’s your mental health today? I realised that old souls are more in tune with the injustices around the world, emphaty runs in their blood and sometimes it can be overwhelming.

    In most cases, old souls are low-key depressed. They are mainly introverts and tend not to talk about their problems to the people around them. They are somehow wise and act more mature than the people third age. This affects them because they barely interact with their age group or so. They are great thinker and so analyse situations more and tend to retrieve themselves from the world. They prefer their own world because they trust they are fine as at that. In real sense they need exposure to some different kind of approach in life. They get depressed because they are not able to view life as others view it. I think old souls are the most affected by depression.

    Depression affects older people differently than younger people. In older people, depression often goes along with other medical illnesses and disabilities and lasts longer.

    Depression in older adults is tied to a higher risk of cardiac diseases and of death from illness. At the same time, depression reduces an older person’s ability to rehabilitate. Studies of nursing home patients with physical illnesses have shown that the presence of depression substantially increases the likelihood of death from those illnesses. Depression also has been linked with increased risk of death after a heart attack. For that reason, it’s important to make sure that an older adult you are concerned about is evaluated and treated, even if the depression is mild.

  2. I think old souls suffer depression the most because they have their youthful freedom taken away from them. From a young age, their appearance is that of an old soul and most don’t want to be associated with them. Most end up lonely their whole lives which lead to depression.
