Depression is not a "thing" in itself, but a description of the result of certain thinking processes.
One important thing to understand about life is that life is cyclical. That is to say that challenges happen fairly often in everyone's life. Rejection, disappointment, grief, and embarrassment occur in everyone's lifetime and sometimes regularly. When challenges happen a person with a "learned pessimism" style of thinking will find that they become depressed.
A major depressive episode could be described as a person having symptoms such as feeling sad or empty, lack of interest in anything, constant fatigue, feelings of worthlessness, feelings of guilt or shame, the inability to think clearly or focus on something, insomnia and weight loss or gain. This could be a life-threatening psycho-physiological disorder if it goes on unchecked.
Depression is the result of the combination of a persons experiences and a their personal style of thinking which is called "learned pessimism".
Working with clients on a one-to-one basis we would use what are referred to as solution focused questions and questions to help the person move from their "What's the point?" way of thinking to specifics, and help clarify their outcomes.
We would also look at processes to dissociate them from any traumatic memories and associate them into enjoyable experiences, sorting their ongoing experiences for happiness.
The end goal is for the client to look towards their future, using goal-setting and thinking changes to let go of the past and move forward.
I believe we should all exercise and laugh on a daily basis which creates the physiology of happiness.
If this strikes a chord with you take control of your life, make that change and make an appointment to come in and discuss your personal situation.
When deciding exactly what you would like to achieve be very careful of how you talk to yourself. You are the only person that you actually listen to 100% of the time and more than that you also believe yourself, almost without question.
The next time you find yourself disagreeing with someone, or perhaps you just don’t understand why they have done something, try placing yourself in their position and look at the world, and yourself, from their point of view.
Aim to adopt their view point rather than just thinking ‘What would I do in that situation?
Where are the limits of your belief, your world?
What do you feel you can’t do, or can do?
The areas in your life that are not going as well as you would like may indicate that your view point could do with some adjusting.
