When a person feels depressed or has depression, very often it can be very difficult for other people around to understand why they may be acting erratically or holding themselves back in life. I had depression myself for many years and even though I was successful in my career, had friends, relationships, an active social life and many hobbies…. many time I just felt like hiding away much to the confusion of many people around me.
Depression is caused when different parts of the mind are struggling to understand each other and in their conflict the mind shuts down to protect itself. Please watch the video on how the mind puts the world together for further information CLICK HERE
In this article I could put a list of things to watch out for to check if your mind is struggling with a depression, however this video puts it perfectly!
Depression is a serious concern and although many people are starting to understand the symptoms in themselves and others there are still many people who see it as a weakness or are around other people who do not understand or maybe even do not want to understand. Depression can sometimes appear to come and go when it pleases…. but it isn’t random. There will always be a trigger! Something will have happened (sometimes even apparently tiny triggers) that will have set off an emotional reaction.
Please remember…..depression is your mind trying to cope when there is internal conflict…..you are NOT insane or weak or weird…..YOU ARE HUMAN! Trust me on this as I have been there and worked through it, so be cautious of people telling you to ‘smile’ or be happier as its not that easy! There is a way through it all but you need to know the strategy. Again please watch the video on how the mind puts the world together on this link… CLICK HERE
