Songs About Loving Someone with Depression
Loving someone with depression is not easy, but listening to relatable songs can help you through the battle.
The truth is: not all love songs are sunshine and rainbows.
Sometimes, love songs are difficult and painful because you can relate to the realism of loving someone with mental illness.
Unfortunately, I find a lot of love songs about depression and mental illness to be breakup songs.
And while mental illness can certainly make relationships more difficult, sometimes mental illness can make relationships even more fulfilling.
Here are 20 relatable songs about loving someone with depression:
