Depression is a state of mind where you feel lost & blank. Whatever the Google definition might say..but the truth is depression is a frame of mind where one feels completely empty inside as if no thoughts or only negative thoughts go through one’s mind. That feeling of loneliness that you sense even in the room filled with million people is called depression.
You gotta have faith in the being of yourself, of this life, of the people who are with you, of the people who are no more with you. Friendships that end, words left unsaid, things that happened which you were not ready for, things that didn’t happen which you wanted it to be in a certain way.
I personally insist on Talk therapy a lot. The times when you feel sad & try to gallop & wrap into it is the exact time when you need someone to talk to. And many times, we fear to communicate our innermost feelings to people close to us simply because of the fear of being judged. But what we neglect is the “Craving need” to share our feelings with someone.
We all need someone to talk to, come to solace to. We are so misguided by the whole Bollywood scenario, that we tend to dwell in the depression hoping someone, will notice & offer help. But things like this, don’t happen in real life.
The next option you seek is a psychiatrist; maybe medication can help, but my dear reader, curing depression is still in your hands. Medications & Mediation can help but, Talk therapy is the most powerful tool to curb depression.
Getting the most out of talk therapy that helps you in Faith Restoration:
When you first begin therapy, make a list of the things that are bothering you.
You might include:
*Issues in your family or other relationships.
*Symptoms like changes in eating or sleeping habits.
*Anger, anxiety, irritability or troubling feelings.
*Thoughts of hurting yourself.
Consider spiritual matters; explore different philosophies and beliefs. Having faith in yourself & in your deeds can really help you get out of darkness.
Life is beautiful my dear reader. Live it to the fullest, be the happiest version of yourself & spread that Happy Vibe-Join the tribe!
Be-Live & Conquer!
