Unfortunately, due to our fears and lack of understanding, we have misinterpreted a natural process and instead created a widespread labelled disorder.
Depression is an important part of our life that allows us to think.
All forms of depression are triggered by our emotions. During this process we will find that when there is a feeling of incompleteness in the things that we do, the expectations of our self become enhanced.
One of two things will happen in this instance, we will react either positively or negatively. We will either make a greater effort to achieve what is needed to satisfy us, or we will find the process too overwhelming and enter into a dark and silent place.
Ultimately whatever takes place, we will remain in either situation until a new event or distraction takes place to shift our mood. Both examples are extremely common, which each and every one of us will go through on a daily basis.
When positive we are happy and contented. When negative we are miserable and discontented which we class as a depression. Yet, we must not have fears about these feelings. On the contrary, we must look at them objectively and try and benefit from every aspect of this process.
We must learn to welcome these negative feelings, as these are the building blocks of our creativity and imagination in all that we do, be it in our personal, occasional or social life.
We exist as part of a natural process. As in all cases, this communication is an extremely important part of our existence. All aspects of nature influence us and affect our emotions, which in turn provokes the mind to create a reaction.
This is a natural reoccurring process, a constant cycle that will appear either positively or negatively. After darkness there comes light. After light there comes darkness again.
We must remember to use our creativity to teach us about our self to reveal any hidden talents and memory relating to our own personal life and journey.
Other forms of depression that interfere constantly in our daily lives relate to discontentment. All experiences in our life have left their mark in our memory.
When discontented, we become preoccupied with our past experiences.
When we become involved with the past it becomes a preoccupation that detaches us from our life and takes us into a depressive state, as if we cease to exist.
This kind of depression can cause deeper difficulties. We dwell on one thought and repeat the same thought over and over again, where it becomes a habitual behaviour. Usually these thoughts relate to difficulties or emotional traumas.
This process continues and if not addressed can affect our sleep. Just before entering sleep there maybe two or three thoughts that ignite, they revolve in a cycle, constantly repeating. The thought does not go any further but other resembling thoughts ensue, where our mind goes off in a tangent, where we never reach a conclusion.
All this relates to our lack of understanding about these kinds of thought processes.
When there is a thought that goes into a repetitive mode, make it an objective to question, to come up with a resolution relating to the issue at hand, not just by looking at the repetitive event, but just understanding a reason or a purpose for it. This is where the mind enters into another area of analysis and calculation.
As you instruct your mind for an answer and command a resolution, you will discover that your depressions become more objective and produce better results. Situations push themselves through the mind to try and open a natural wisdom, which in turn help us reach these decisions and conclusions.
This is when we are in a position to begin to change a habit. Of course, as with any new method it requires practice, and time and patience. However, once you become mindful that you need to know and you need to achieve you make a commitment to yourself and become determined to reach your objectives.
Our mind does not punish us, nor does it create these events to give us a traumatic time. Our mind does not play tricks or games. Our mind helps us live naturally. The mind works and teaches us how to deal with our emotions and minimise any discomfort or uncertainty.
Our mind is under our control and our communication. Our mind must be unemotional and unconditional, so we can understand. Then we are in a position to change any form of habit into a more productive and constructive behaviour.
