Depression -1

When I see these wonderful TV ads or hear about them, I feel ah well how nice it would be if a single pill could take care of all our worries, sorrow, and anxiety. Whoever has written the script or marvelous wordings for the ads greatly lure the depressed people. But unfortunately, the cold truth is NO MEDICINE CAN CURE DEPRESSION, but only reduce its severe effects on us by calming us through rest and sleep. (EXCEPT YOURSELF)!

Everyone has their rough time in life. We are all born to learn something and the rough time in our life helps us to discover the follies, weaknesses, and mistakes in us and to correct them. It all depends on how efficiently and smoothly we can handle them, instead of being very upset and feeling very sad, hopeless, helpless, and being a loser. No, we are not a loser in anyway. What is going on in our life revolves around our past, present and future, and thats why we are experiencing the present condition.

Lots of things affect us unknowingly. All the situations, circumstances and experiences account to our character and nature which forms to be the basic qualities in us. So we should not blame our self for what we are going through, because there are various factors involved. We should not judge ourselves as others do but reason out and find the answers for the questions : Why, what, when, where and how!!! That shows the maturity in us rather than being like a child who cribs, cries, or whines for the things it wants but it didn't get.

So, we need to stop for awhile calm ourselves down, and start thinking. What is the reason for becoming very unhappy? What is that that is bothering me? Am I right or wrong in doing this? How can I solve my problems. Most of all how can I be happy and lead a healthy life? Here is the most important solution. MEDITATION!!!

Meditation, is a very essential factor in keeping our life happy. We should take time to meditate for at least ten minutes everyday. Especially when we are undergoing some kind of problem like Depression. We need a very quiet place devoid of all disturbances and think and gradually analyze our problems, worries and things that cause this hopelessness. And find out the causes for depression.

Secondly, time to time evaluating our-self helps us to progress in life. This helps us to stay away from depression. Every simple, single step we take really leads us a long way to success. We should believe in ourselves, we should highlight the good qualities in us and jot down the bad ones that need to be eliminated. We should accept our mistakes. By eliminating the bad qualities we help us to cleanse our mind and open our self to something new. While we talk about evaluating, comparison comes to our mind, it is good to compare ourselves because we come to know how blessed we are than the others who are in some way less fortunate than us,(for eg. regarding health, wealth, status, character or profession etc.,) as well as how much effort we need to put to come up in life like some other people who really thrive so well in life.

We also need a very good, reliable, friend in whom we can trust and count upon some advise, support and encouragement which can lead to our happiness.

We should also write down our goals in life. We should dream about them, we should do all that we can to achieve our goals and not worry about the results. Unexpectedly everything will fall in place, and make us happy.
