Battling Depression? Learn about Depression Self Help.
Depression Self Help - How do you accomplish that when you’re the one that’s depressed?
What I want to teach people, is the only way out of depression is to get out of your own way.
I’m standing on the other side of depression so I’m putting myself in your shoes – someone who’s battling depression actively – and I’m thinking to myself “If someone would have said that to me when I was actively battling depression I would have lectured them up one side and down the other about how ‘I can’t help it’ or ‘I have a chemical imbalance’ or ‘look at everything I’ve been through.’”
So if you’re thinking these things right now, or any other number of excuses we come up with when we’re battling depression, I have one thing I want you to remember…You’re Right.
I am not a cruel person. I’m not a person who lacks compassion. One of my loudest characteristics has been said to be empathy. I am just a girl who has been through it. I probably haven’t been through what you’ve been through. (I know. That’s what I used to respond with as well.) Perhaps you’re right. But you haven’t been through what the next person has been.
There is always someone who has it worse than you do.
I don’t mean to undermine your feelings - believe me, I've had them. But I want you to know before you tread deeper into this website, my intention here is to help you get out of your own way using depression self help. And I will if you’ll let yourself.
So yes, we’ve heard it all before. What a cliché actually. The “there’s someone else who has it worse than you” phrase. But truly, have you ever taken the time in between your sorrows to look around?
I knew someone who was a victim of something unspeakable. This woman is now one of the happiest and most inspiring women I have ever known.
When I made up my mind to get my life back, I would think of her whenever I was feeling down, to remind myself, not of her troubles, but of her victories. To remember that nothing I have ever gone through would be as difficult as what she had to overcome, but she did. Why did she? Why did I? Why should you begin
Depression Self Help
Because whatever you’re going through, from this moment on, is in your past.
And now, one moment later, another moment is gone and it is now in your past. You began reading this webpage a few moments ago. They are now a part of your past. Our lives are passing us by one moment at a time.
The past is gone. It can’t be changed, or rearranged, so let it go. The future? The future is a result of what you’re doing now. What are you doing today? Being depressed in the present is the worst investment you can make toward your future.
So, from this moment on welcome yourself to your new life. Take a deep breath, start your positive self-talk and let go so you too can experience the relief that comes with depression self help.
