Coping With Depression

Living life for more than 30 years, I have come across people who suffer depression, and I had also have my own experience of being depressed. Having been through depression and having seen how depression can change a person's life -- their own thinking and how they in turn affect the people around him/her, especially the family members, I had come to realise that depression is something which can be avoided and they are not contagious nor scary.

In fact, in this busy world, many people has experienced feelings of depression at one time or another. These feelings can be with us for as long as you want to 'indulge in your own world'. However, with the right kind of mentality and positive thinking, many depression can normally pass away in hours or days. However, not many people would want to get out of their world even when they were advised. Long term wise, depression if allow to persist, is harmful to the health of the person. If depression is prolonged and persist and the person has suicidal thoughts, then they should be referred to a mental health specialist or psychiatrist.

Depression is typically caused by a combination of biological, genetic, and psychological factors. Some common symptoms of depression are

  • Persistently sad or feeling sense of 'emptiness'
  • Feelings of hopelessness or pessimism
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness and helplessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed

If you have always wish to play tennis and have admired people playing it, then you should learn it. You live to learn. If you see your friend can do it, so do you. 

This could be you. Anything is possible in this world only if you want to do it. 

Coping and overcoming depression is a choice and a decision to be made. Family should give lots of support to the depressed person and the first step to cope with depression is to change the lifestyle of the victim. To overcome depression, the person must think positively and eliminate as much negative thoughts as possible. Next, visit tennis store or any sports store. Buy a pair of k swiss tennis shoes or any other shoes that you love. Pamper yourself, knowing that your life is precious and you have worked hard all your life. You deserved to be rewarded with things you love. Having tennis shoes, you must also look at babolat rackets and you must buy yourself tennis racket that you like. With tennis balls, tennis rackets and tennis shoes purchased, you can always be ready to go to the tennis court to play your favourite game with your friends. 

Dress your best and you increased your self-esteem and you feel much more confident and better. Become socially active by planning your time for your hobbies as well as time for exercise and other social activities. Do something which you like and try to be good at it. You will feel a sense of accomplishments succeeding in the things that you love to do. Do not give yourself unachievable goals, but set realistic goals. Learn to rest and relax too, knowing that there must be a balance in everything in our life. Read good books, surround yourself with positive thinking individual and love what you are doing. When your time is well-spent and your mind is not filled with negative thoughts, you will realise that you are no longer depressed.
