Walking out of depression

Walking out of depression is not easy and especially when it is after a breakup. Nobody can help you, it is you who needs to help yourself and talk yourself out of it. You need to know you are worthy of a better life and a better relationship. It is difficult to move out of depression but it is not impossible.

  1. Our brain is a treacherous entity. it is meant to help us but becomes our foe when it plays and replays the past experiences. If remember the happy times we grieve that have ended, and bad moments are anyway a pain. Everyone says why do it, no one tells how. I beat depression when it threatened me, by a multi pronged strategy.
    1. Distanced myself from the people who reminded me of my lean phase.
    2. I joined an exercise group and danced my pent up energy out.
    3. I began to write.
    4. Deliberately pushed the negativity out.
    It worked wonders.

  2. We also need constant support of our family and friends. We need more love and a belief that there is so.much to the world outside the breakup door.

  3. Yes Mallika, though it is difficult but one has to move ahead in life. It takes time and effort and many years at times but one has to fight back.

  4. It is difficult, of course. And while I agree in the end you have to be in charge of your life and how long you will let a past relationship keep you unhappy, it is also important to surround yourself with friends and family. Being alone in a depression may send you further down the spiral
