If you no longer care about sports, hobbies, or other daily activities that used to bring you joy, then you might have persistent depressive disorder. Do you find it difficult to be upbeat and positive even during the happiest occasions? Even though your mood may fluctuate in terms of mild, moderate, or severe depressions, you are not happy doing what you love. Maybe you used to have more fun, but now people think you are gloomy most of the time.

It is okay to enjoy spending time alone; however, you should feel comfortable seeing people at public places and happy when you get to spend time with your loved ones.
