A Method For Coping With Depression & Self-Curing Over Time

In the modern world, it’s unfortunate that one in three people will experience a mental illness at some point in time. Not only does this number seem to be increasing, but it has left many experts scratching their heads, worried about what this figure exactly means and what the true reasons behind it are. Some people blame our globalized and highly technophile society. Some people blame the pollution of the atmosphere, some people blame the overpopulation, and some people blame all of these issues in the same fell swoop. As individuals, we have limited ability to shift the society around us and dictate how everyone lives, and that is for the better.

However, sometimes the progression of society can mean that our problems can stagnate, and we become depressed. It’s not rationally difficult to become depressed, and it’s not illogical to feel it. Becoming depressed doesn’t make you a bad person in any capacity. It simply means you need to find ways to counteract it, and maybe live your life a little differently to how you are living it so far. Unfortunately, not everyone finds this easy to accomplish. Overcoming depression can be very difficult by anyone’s standards, and it’s usually not a ‘one and done’ scenario. It will likely take a lifelong strategy of self-maintenance and progression to help us from falling into the same habits.

Talking therapy can be its own complete reward. Sometimes, discussing and putting your thoughts in order using dialogue can actually help you understand what you mean when you discuss certain topics. For this reason, the counselling professional will often simply lend a listening ear, and intersect with interesting insights to help you understand or further think about a certain nuance of your explanation. This form of therapy might allow you to take your first opportunity to truly reflect on how you’ve been feeling. You might think ‘but all I do is reflect on how I’m feeling! That’s the problem!’

However, have you really been thinking about it, about the causes and how to solve them, or have you been in self-pity? The two things are totally different. This is not to insult or downplay your difficulty; this is purely a logical separation. It is so much easier for ourselves to allow ourselves to remain in depression because we simply don’t want to truly see it for what it is. Talking about it allows it to become a tangible, objective reality in front of you. It allows you to see what is front of you and make it real.  

However, the best conversations in the world can’t help you if you’re not willing to enact change. For this reason, you need to be comfortable with getting a little less secure. Many times, depression leads us to live lazily, because it’s difficult to go outside of our comfort zones. However, this is the time when your comfort zone needs expanding the most. The more restricted in your freedom you become, the closer the walls of your world surround you.

Even taking the opportunity to walk around the park every morning can be of absolutely massive benefit to you, and is worth taking part in. Who knows, one day this might become a run, and that run might turn into a regular run, turning into a gym subscription, turning into a cardio workout, turning into a fit body, turning into an effective and beautiful method to feel fantastic four days a week, and feel healthy for the rest. NEVER ignore the benefits of small, incremental change. You might be stunned at the progress you can make.

If you are struggling, we’d like to extend our full sympathies and would like to tell you that you have every ability to make this period a success. You’re sure to come out stronger on the other side.
