Grief and Depression
Feeling constantly, deeply sad and for some reason nothing seems to go well, which keeps feeding the loop of depression we are in.
Depression’s symptoms vary and can go from a general lack of interest for life and constant low energy to a strong feeling of grief that can last a lifetime.
Grief is a deep emotional void left a result of some loss, be it a physical loss like losing your job or home, or even a certain lifestyle, or an emotional loss like a relationship break-up, be it for the child of divorcing parents or for the loss/end of a relationship itself and not necessarily an intimate one.
Or again depression can be the consequence of not having lived fully a certain period of life, like having missed on a happy childhood or youth, or the realisation of missed opportunities like that of creating a family, or having had to give up on one’s aspirations because of some situational constraints.
Some depressed people however, are able to carry on smiling and give no signal to the outer world of their pain.
Depression is lived in isolation as it is obvious that people who have never suffered from depression can’t understand the pain; in fact any kind of attempt to bring up the subject of the emotional pain is often met with shallow and inappropriate remarks. The depressed person ends up feeling like no one can help, often after some attempt to get treated with various traditional ways.
Thus depression can last from a few months to years on end and although there doesn’t seem to be a way out, a way out is possible indeed!
The truth is that there are two kinds of depression, the one we may develop for the first time as an adult and the one we may develop as young children. Unfortunately the earlier we develop depression the more difficult it is to treat with traditional methods.
Medicine has labelled depression as an illness that has to do with an imbalance of the chemicals in your brain and it is genetic, but there is nothing furthest from the truth.
Depression is due to bad experiences and bottled up emotions, lack of support in difficult times, possibly unresolved trauma, and once we can work with these experience at an unconscious level, depression is truly lifted off your shoulders once and for all so you can start making plans in your life once again.
Remember: “Nothing is Impossible, the word itself says I’M POSSIBLE!”
