Depression and anxiety are horrible feelings to deal with. People who experience these feelings many times go unnoticed in everyday life. A person suffering with anxiety and depression may from an outward appearance look normal and not seem to be out of sorts. Many sufferers however, do so in private and have a hard time just functioning in their day to day life, going to work, visiting friends etc.
Many of these people suffer in silence. Depression and anxiety are often looked up as being weaknesses and feelings that people should just ‘get over’. If you have EVER suffered from depression and anxiety you know just how badly you can feel and that you don’t just ‘get over it’, as a matter of fact to get proper help at treating or managing these feelings of depression, medical intervention/therapy is often needed.
It’s important to fight the feelings of depression as best you can while staying consistent with treatment, but trying to stay positive and look at things in a positive and appreciative light. You have to tell yourself, even through the thick black clouds that congest your thinking that you are worthy of happiness and that things always get better. Sometimes you can dig yourself into such a pit, that you have a hard time seeing anything as ‘good’ in your life, and you may even feel worthless or hopeless.
FEAR NOT! This is simply the mental illness clouding your judgement and perception of things. With proper therapy and treatment, you can change things for the better. You need to stick with treatment and get active and try to stay distracted. Get busy with new things. All of this will help you with your thinking and feelings of depression.
