At some stage we have all experienced depression in some way. No matter who you are, it has probably hit you when you’ve least expected it to. Depression itself can occur at any time, and it doesn’t matter what age you are.
When you are locked into a physical stalemate with your own mind it feels like someone has slammed you into a locked room, but the creepiest thing is, this room is your head, and your body confines itself while the world passes you by and you lose all sense of who you are. You continue day-by-day within an isolated state, it’s like living in a bubble that you can’t pop your way out of.
Finding your way out of this state will be hard, but once you find a way to suppress the feelings that are getting you down, it will then become easier. There are medicated options that can help you, these will help increase your happiness feeling, but this is only a short term solution. Ultimately, you need to find your own ways to cope because one way might help someone else, but then it might not help you.
Some people say that you need to keep yourself occupied, this is a simple mind trick, it allows you to put the thoughts to the back of your mind, but again, these things don’t always go regardless.
Stay positive when you can, allow yourself to become free of depression, but it still be a struggle and the war will rage in your mind regardless.
