Is it a good thing that I go into depression and then for a while just fan out of it?

It depends upon what you gain or lose from the depression. Depression is an emotion everyone goes through at some point in their lives. Some people are more prone to it than others. The intensity of depression also varies in individuals.

If your depression is affecting your work, studies, social life, etc., you should seek help from a psychiatrist or a psychotherapist. Talk to your parents about it. Think of anything that bothers you so much that you get depressed. If you can find out the events that lead to depression, you can work on them and avoid getting into that state, or learn how to deal with it.

Best Regards
