Discovering what life is about

Depression hacks

 

 

Psychology is about thinking. I am not a doctor, but I have suffered from Depression my entire life.

 

My depression began to disappear when I began studying it.

 

I first learned how to gain control over my thoughts and my beliefs. After that I learned how to not think, yes, not think and just “be”; meditation.

 

Between those two disciplines I no longer suffer from depression.

 

There is a requisite for depression, something you must do in order to have it, you *must* focus on the future or the past.

 

I used to have a job that paid over $10K a month and didn’t require me really to do anything, maybe 10 hrs. a month, my family was healthy and I was living in a 1500 sq. ft. house in a very nice neighborhood and had no rent. Many afternoons I was curled up in a fetal position praying the “Our Father” and wanting to die.

 

I prayed because, at the time, I was a Christian, I no longer am, but I didn’t know what else to do.

 

When I felt my suicide was imminent I Googled “how to fight depression” and other search terms and found one video by Tony Robbins. In the video he made a statement that stopped me in my tracks, it was a bold statement: “Gratitude and Depression Cannot Coexist”.

 

I pondered that statement immediately and realized it’s truth almost immediately. That took me down the path of buying his CD’s and making the commitment to listen to them. That was the beginning of the end of depression for me.

 

During my journey I also saw doctors, who prescribed medicine, which complicated and made things worse for me.

 

I believe that our thoughts create the chemicals that are released in our bodies, like Adrenaline, Serotonin, etc. and to manipulate them from meds w/out changing our thoughts makes the body fight itself.

 

So it doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, depression isn’t related to either, it stems from your thoughts, beliefs and focus on the future and the past.

 

If you have depression, right now, you are just reading an article on Quora. You are probably sitting down, maybe in your home, maybe in a coffee shop, but, for right now, that is all that exists, you are just reading an article. When you are done reading this article, which will be soon, your thoughts may take you over again painting a horrible picture of your future, which doesn’t exist right now, sending off fight or flight chemicals into your body and making you depressed. You make yourself depressed.

 

That has been my experience.

 

Louise Hay’s books have also been a great help for me in overcoming my depression as well as Tony Robbins.

 

Ok, that’s the end of the article.
