Coming out of Depression: is it possible? This topic will tell that depression is not a disease, it is a state of mind which can be changed. Depression is a state which affects an individual very badly. It eats all the productivity and happiness of a person. I mentioned in my previous article “Make or Break Order:Bipolar Disorder“
What is Depression?
Depression is a state in which person feels that we are useless person on the planet, nobody loves us. We are not able to do anything, do not want to face the world. We want to be alone and in dark. Lights are also seeming like our enemy. We do not want to look good. We feel that everybody is leaving us. We are feeling regret for everything we did in past. We are not able to judge what is right or wrong. Small tasks are big for us like bathing, taking glass of water, brushing our teeth etc.
Symptoms of Depression
As I said, depression is not a disease, it is just a state.
There are following states which we would be in during depression
- Feeling very low
- Zero productivity
- Suicidal Thoughts
- Regretting for everything in past
- Less or No decision power
- Wanted to be alone and in dark
- Not able to do small tasks
- Do not want to face people
- Over sleepy or very lazy
How can we help?
Now, we know that the symptoms of depression, so how we help these people. First, we need to understand that these people are suffering from depression, so we need to be very kind with these people. We should listen them and win their confidence that we are there no matter what. They might try to be away from us, but we should keep trying till we win their confidence. Do not use harsh words for them. When they are discussing their regrets or mistakes of their past, we should listen them carefully and make them realize that whatever happened is not their mistake completely. We should take them out and try to change their mood. The biggest problem of these people that they do not have anyone who can understand them or listen them. Many times, we suggest going to psychiatrist which might not be correct advice.
How can we come out of depression?
There might be scenarios, where we do not get any person to help us. Then we need to help ourselves. How can we do that? First, we should find something which relax ourselves like writing, dancing, singing, painting, playing, travelling etc. We should focus on those things and start reinventing ourselves. We should find those moments when people praised us, loved us. Always keep those moments in hard form and see whenever we feel like that we are useless fellow.
Nobody in this world born without any quality, only we need to explore that within ourselves. Many times, people are suggesting meditation or visiting to psychiatrist, but it is not necessary that it will work for us as well. Anything which relax us is a kind of meditation. Read about the people who came out of depression. Make our mind to understand that this is just bad state and small effort can change it to good state.
“Depression is not a disease, it is just a state which can be changed just like any other state.”
