@ RooskiZombi - Like you, I also went through various stages of depression due to events that seemed out of my control. There has been some good
advice on here from fellow members but here is what worked for me.
1) Change the way you see things. Maybe everything happens for a reason, and there is a life lesson to be learned. Instead of seeing the bad in
something, try to find something positive to be gained from this experience. The mind is very powerful, take the placebo effect for example, give
someone a sugar pill and tell them it will cure them and they report to feel/ get better.
2) Find a way to vent your energy into a positive light. I was really bad at keeping things bottled up inside to only find myself exploding on someone
for reasons that they did not deserve, that is unfair to said person and is also unhealthy for you. I found that I was able to take these types of
emotions and channel them through music releasing the emotions and feelings into something that will not harm others directly. It is purifying, at
least for me. This does not only work with music, you could draw and express yourself that way, maybe keep a journal, take up poetry, go for a run,
hit the gym, etc…
Different stroke for different folks, you just need to experiment, after all, you know yourself better than anyone else. Please remember that we all
go through hard times as life can be like a roller coaster ride, experiencing highs and lows, but know “no matter how low the ride goes eventually,
you rise.” Maybe today was an off day, do not be hard on yourself, we all experience these days. When we do have one of these days, remember this
“Tomorrow is a new day, and it is what you make of it.”
I wish you the best on your path to wellness and you are more than welcome to message me anytime. Understand that change is not immediate, so try and
have some patience. Confucius once said "The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones."
A miles journey begins with a single step.
Take care and I hope you have a blessed day.
