Depressed feelings are a natural emotional reaction when we encounter difficulties that knock us down from feeling our regular self. We normally will automatically adjust our depressed mood back to a calmer status. It may takes a couple of hours or a few weeks, depending  on how well our adjusting system works. However, sometimes when the difficulty is greater than our self-adjusting system, we will be out of emotional balance and stay in the depressed mood for a longer period of time. In that case, we do not know how to get out of our depressed feelings. That is when we seem to get stuck with depression.
