So many things can cause a person to fall into a depressive state. It could be financial, marital, or even a death in the family/friend. I can tell you straight off the bat i am no doctor however i have dealt with depression in my life. Some of the ways i have helped myself is surrounding yourself with family or friends. Be around people you feel comfortable with and trust. They will listen to you and help put your mind at ease. Another thing that is good is keeping your mind busy, you never want to let your mind wander back to the state in which you were in. The state of pain and emotional distraught it really drains you and leaves you to where you think ‘why me’ ? Believe me when i say that as i write this its coming from experience. Do you like to paint ? How about hobbies like collecting things ? It doesnt matter what you pick but the important thing is that you do what makes you happy and can help you move away from that dark spot and into the sun ! I was depressed for a few years thank God for sure that He has kept me from stay in the darkness but once i got married it was the best thing that could happen to me.
I felt a new fresh sense of happiness. My wife has been my backbone the one who makes me laugh when i am at my lowest and keeps me moving. I say all of this to you (the reader) so that you know that, yes, there is a way out ! Dont turn back just keep moving forward find that door that will lead to breaking those chains !! I wont lie you will fall sometimes and fail but keep in mind you will not find success standing alone. It can only be found through failures. Allow me to explain. Lets say you want to bake cookies but they always come out to burned or under cooked. One day however they come out just right !! How did this happen ? Through trial and error and failures. You will find success in breaking the chains when you try again and again ! If i did it, then reader, i know 100% that you too can do it !!
