    Are you emotionally close to the depressed adults? If you are, sometimes depressed people might just want someone to listen to them. Or perhaps they might want something to distract them from their depression. But if you aren't emotionally close to them, then it's not necessarily your responsibility to help them, especially if you are younger and have your own issues.

    You shouldn't feel like you have to sing certain songs to make other people feel happy, You should just sing whatever you feel like singing. Other people can make the choice whether to listen or not. Though if people don't want you singing, then maybe just sing when you are by yourself or in your own space.

    Sometimes depressed people may just be depressed, no matter who they are with. But if someone knows that how they feel will affect you, then it may be best to spend less time around the, if possible.

    Hope you are okay <3

    Morning @ellie2000 how are you this morning. I can understand how others emotions can make you feel overwhelmed or sad and it can be hard not to take this on personally. Self care is important and sometimes its about trying your best to be empathetic to the person but also taking a sep back and prioritising your own wellbeing.After a difficult conversation you could always do an act of self care or in a nice way tell the person that they could reach out to other places ie the mix if they need more support. Hope this helps <3
