Overcoming depression is very difficult because we can’t seem to stop the cycle of thoughts that make us depressed. Thinking about how we lost love, lost money, how our lives are not where we want them to be, or feeling rejected and isolated from family and friends brings us to a point where we simply sit in the sulking place of despair and grief. However, contrary to understanding, depression is a very necessary process.
Depression allows you to take a necessary time-out from your L.I.F.E. so that you can sit and contemplate things about yourself that you need to explore on deeper levels. It may seem that the depression will never ever end because you hurt so bad. You may even feel the world looks so dismal and dark, even when the sun is shinning so brightly. It may seem that the pain can never go away, because you may think you are stuck in a cycle that continues to bring forth more pain. However, the depression will clear as you begin to grow weary of feeling sorry for yourself and stand up in the midst of the darkness to make the necessary changes in your experience.
You CAN handle your depression. You were not given the Spirit of fear, but of LOVE, of POWER and of a SOUND MIND. Your mind may not seem so strong right now, because your emotions are all over the place. You hurt and you are grieving, but as you move through your process the depression will lift and you will gain the confidence and courage to step into the new person you are growing into. You will stand in the POWER you were given and begin to take charge of your L.I.F.E., by changing the way you look at things and the way you look at the hardships you have grown through. You will begin to see the strength in your own character, as you begin to fall in love with who you are.
You are here by perfect and divine design. You are not a mistake. You are purposed for each and every moment you are going through, including the issues that have brought you into depression. Depression is taking you back into the darkness so you can allow the seeds of L.I.F.E. to continue to germinate within you.
All that you have lost will be restored more so than what you had before, because you begin to learn it is not about the thing you lost, but about the loss of self in the things and the people in your experience. Your depression clears as you begin to align yourself in your POWER to walk in the GREATness that you are. However, you must allow yourself the healing time that depression brings forth. You must go into it and ask the necessary questions to find what you are supposed to be learning from the depression you are experiencing.
Depression is a great teacher that brings forth tremendous rewards. It is the shock absorber that creates a barrier wall for you to accept your loss, grief and pain. You must exercise your mind and your body to move the chemical imbalances to realign physically as well. Get your body moving. Go for walks, jog, or exercise. Force yourself to let the light into your room and get up and fold the blankets and make up the bed, even though you don’t feel like it. Play comforting music and allow your thoughts to bring forth new ideas that handle all the objections that the negative cycle of thoughts have continued to play in your mind.
Let go and KNOW that you were given a SOUND MIND and have the POWER and LOVE within you to overcome the greatest and most unimaginable pain, because you realize that it is all being counted for your greater good in the end anyway.
Stop holding on to yesterday’s events and prepare yourself for tomorrow’s discovery and exploration. Begin to invest deep love in self and stop worrying about who does and doesn’t love you and why? IT all boils down to one question… “Do you love yourself and do you believe in you?” Do You? Do you believe in yourself especially when everything seems to be turn upside down?
GET UP! Your body knows only to exist and move forward. It is in cadence with time, which never stands still. It is your mind that holds you back.
Depression is your opportunity to sort out all your pain and grief, so that you can move into acceptance and pick-up and soar. Use all your Divine Emotional Tools, including depression, to build the person you want to grow into and allow yourself to become the GREATNESS that you are.
