Depression is strong feelings of sadness and dejection. When a person is going through depression in grief, the person will always seem down. That person will never see good things that are going on. People are normally too focused on the bad thing that just happened to feel anything else. When someone loses a loved one, that person will go through depression.
I really don 't i slept in the garage the night he died and i broke all the goddam windows with my fist” (Salinger 78).

This grief can be seen when Conrad says, “Conrad Jarrett the Anxious Failure dress this guy in blue and gray.” (Guest 2). This reveals that Conrad is in a deep depression because he doesn’t see himself as anything more than a failure. He associates himself with the two colors he recognizes as anxious and failure, he believes that he is missing a sense of humor. This connects to the stage of grief, depression, because when people are at this stage of grief they tend to put themselves down and think about the negative things in life. Conrad is clearly suffering from depression as shown in the quote above.
This begins to weaken him both individually and emotionally, and it eventually takes a toll on him. Within Ender, Card shows that isolation and loneliness can destroy an individual through his collapse and his change in personality. After the grueling training and numerous battles that the government puts Ender through, along with all of the isolation and loneliness that he endures, he collapses in the processes both during and after the burdens were put onto him. The first major event that showed Ender enduring some troubles was when he woke up in the middle of the night and found that “there was blood” on his bed, and he had been “gnawing on his own fist” (285) in the middle of the night, in his sleep. This revealed to the reader that the strong and powerful Ender might be beginning to crack and show a
He speaks to many people, seeking advice and comfort, but they are not able to help him find a human connection. Holden’s depression increases throughout the novel, almost to the point of suicide. He criticizes many people and ideas, labeling them as ‘phony’. Holden lies as a result of his depression, in order to hide the fact that he’s lonely and bored with his life, to divert any questions which he believes are too personal, and to create his own reality. In this way, Salinger illustrates how, during difficult times, people resort to lying as a coping mechanism.
Kathy and John had a relationship that was never perfect and could rarely be described as good or healthy. They continued a flawed and sad relationship for many years past the point of recovery and ultimately paid the price for it with Kathy’s suicide. Issues such as fear and dishonesty both consciously and unconsciously began and persisted from the beginning to the end. John developed mental issues after his father committed suicide, one of the results of these issues was that John has metaphorical mirrors in his head that deflect and protect him from the truth (65-66). When undesirable things happen in his life, he tried to bury and

Nevertheless, many former player are misdiagnosed or misguided in their efforts to find the source of their condition.

Conrad has a very difficult understanding that the death of his brother affects others too, making Conrad ultimately feel alone and insecure. In Judith Guest's Ordinary People, Conrad Jarrett learns to deal with recovery and hardship with the help of actions through learning that he’s not alone when he is depressed with the help and guidance of Lazenby and Dr. Berger. In Ordinary People, Judith Guest frequently shows how difficult normal life for Conrad Jarrett can be to adjust after the death of his brother.

The first stage of grief is denial. Denial is when someone disagrees with the fact that something has happened and they do not like it. According to the Grief Packet when one is in the denial stage, “You tell yourself that it isn't happening” (Ross 18). This means that someone can think something is not true in some way. Most people go through this stage often in their life because of their relatives dying or just losing something that they were friends with.
