Living a life plagued with depression is complex. For some, it’s a dull feeling in the back of your mind that is triggered by a certain word, action or situation and it makes the world feel shaky at that moment. For others, it’s a form of numbness that carries through your whole body every time that you wake, making it hard for you to perform even a simple task without crumbling under the pressure of your own thoughts. It is degrading, dark and can metastasize into a catastrophic phenomenon seen and felt only by you.
Depression becomes a consistent part of your life and starts to consume your very being – if you allow it. Of course, it is a tricky force to be reckoned with. Even if you would like to banish depression from your soul, cleanse yourself, it is not like the common cold in which you can rinse down medicine with water each morning and night and cure your mind. As effective as that would feel, it is not that simple.
It takes more than self-assurance to begin on the path of recovery, although self-assurance is a good place to start. You need to want to get better, to recover. It makes it that much easier to get the help you need and deserve!
