Excellent re-framing for procrastination.
Some things are Organic in this field, meaning the experiencer is "wired" differently, has certain chemical or other neurological ante-cedents.
This can be depression, personality disorders, pyschopathy, schizophrenia, bi polar etc etc.
Medication and a long standing hard to shift experience, for that person in those cases its true.
That is it’s a fact not a "belief".
HOWEVER for MOST people diagnosed with depression of the various types, this is not a FACT.
Most people with depression don’t have this type, and there is change process available that do work and quickly.
Please be aware and honest with yourself about any "Secondary Gains" that having "depression" and being labelled, being and known as that brings you,
especially if being in that place for many years.
As described so well most drugs for this just kill of any emotion, making the persons life empty and with no richness of experience. This is just
treating the "Symptoms" not the "Root" or "Cause" and so will never be a cure.
To come of them NEVER doing so without doing it in conjunction with the prescribing person, and seek out local or national support groups of others
who have done the same or on that journey. Research and find others who have with your particular type of med have managed to do so safely and
properly, take that info to your prescriber, back up your request at the meeting.
Unless you have a pre determined genetic, or physical/neurological injury, impairment, disease etc causing your depression then without being too
harsh it is partly a choice, mixed with habit and identity if long term.
Sure you will have certain receptor issues on your cells in your body, and brain, you will have more for the peptides of fear, guilt, anger, etc and
less for the fuzzy warm ones love etc, HOWEVER that is partly habit, your body just doing one of the "Secrets" as so often espoused in forums like
What you focus on (unconsciously too!) expands, grows, you attract get more of.
Each time your body repairs it will make new cells looking which all contribute to how you feel, with more parts of them ready for and looking for the
chemicals etc released when we feel low or "depressed".
YOU have done that, not the depression, not some other person or reason event that some might choose to blame as the reason for their "depression".
So you have a choice there and then and here and now! even if only you felt better by just 25% because you had more receptors for "happy" feelings etc
The choice now is focus on more positive thoughts, start them small, feel them keep doing it they will grow. How you think and Feel NOW is telling
your body what to create in expectation of how you will feel later.
Your body takes about 8 years to totally remake itself, but MOST of it much much quicker, build a home for your mind of Love or Anger
Your Choice Now simple as. Nothing to do with "he/She They did this to me" "if only I had" "when I was 7" etc
Its like a mechanical system that’s how it works, just truth be positive and happy your body will be and also look for more, The exact opposite if
angry down etc.
Can you imagine a goal, or even just on feeling happier and happier, that you placed as much energy, emotion, words, time & money on as you have to
date to now on your depression?
BE HONEST think about how much time a day, how much a % of your thoughts and focus, surfing, words, research is on this I am sure you can see if this
was placed elsewhere quickness and absorbtion in that experience would be?
Well what you have been doing is not getting you that, so be prepared to make some small changes be flexible, try being as enthusiastic about getting
happy or reaching a goal that would signify to you a big turning point or you wouldn’t be depressed then?
Maybe many find it hard to imagine a time of not being depressed, can’t see a positive feeling idea picture in their minds of their future?
If so really really think on that!
Again where honestly has most of your focus been?
CREATE that picture dream hope if you don’t have one, then more!
Energy, emotion like a muscle the mind conscious, can be trained to come to the place you choose it to be, not where it has gone out of habit, which
is where many are in depression like a programme that gets "looped" over and over a gain.
Do the work face your mind use your willpower bring it repeatedly to positive, make that the new habit. Meditation, Tai Chi Martial Pursuits all good,
just start being Honest and aware of what’s really going on inside. Watch it force yourself to refocus on Positive, good even neutral but break your
If you not prepared to do this again look at Secondary Gain for where you are, BE HONEST with yourself, as you obviously don’t want to make the
About a month for most on total change in life and experience imagine then what you could achieve after that!
70 odd % of depression is Choice, Habit, Identity and if you put in 100% of the time energy focus on change for a minute amount of the time you have
been "stuck" and all that focus massive positive and happy change is possible.
It is not a good place to be at but your experience of it can change anyone saying different is just positing a "Belief" not a fact!
Now as well as needing the conscious direction, honesty and taming of the stallion if you like mentioned above, many of the real "roots" and "Causes"
rather than symptoms (such as behaviour and experience feelings) lie in the subconscious.
Deal as above with your conscious mind & sort out any Limiting Decisions and Beliefs and negative emotional events, prior to gestalt in an non
associated way, has been shown to be quick effective and profound in treating a myriad of emotional, behavioural and physical diseases, issues,
This can be done by Hypnosis, change work yourself, or if very analytical and guarded Psychoanalysis using conscious power of imagination and creative
suggestions in therapy to effect change, though this is usually a little longer to achieve.
