Depression Series #6: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

June 11, 2010

In all aspects of life’s journey we suffer a form of trauma, be it physical or mental or psychological. The result of all traumas carries one form of depression or another.

As the trauma is felt physically and mentally, the return to normality from that point is time consuming.  Any trauma alters behaviour and everyday perceptions, these naturally carry a strong depressive state and with the added influence of the physical restriction the depression becomes magnified and one loses freedom. This kind of depression needs to be worked upon.

It is important not to accept the situation. We have to make the effort and express the need to overcome, rather than allow one to suffer in silence and expect the cloud to shift as a matter of course. 

When there is a strong desire to shift that cloud then there is a strong possibility that we can off load that weight and darkness and focus on recovery rather than dwell to analyse.

If your Post traumatic Stress is due to an experience, whether witnessing an accident, or witnessing acts of war or violence, or being diagnosed with a serious condition, there are several aspects that must be applied to elevate your situation to develop a clearer vision.

Whatever we witness in our life, these are lessons for us to learn from, the focus shifts from becoming restricted with theses experiences to making them more constructive towards developing a greater understanding.

When we develop an understanding we become stronger automatically. There is no room for self-doubt or unfounded fears in our mind.

Time is important in these situations, a lot of healing must take place, this can only happen with the passing of time. To overcome these depressions takes a focus towards freedom, to empower yourself, to strengthen yourself physically and mentally, to become adamant, or desperate to find a way out. 

Always remember to listen to what your mind tells you and accept that as a fact. Listen to your intuition to reach a higher understanding. That in itself will alleviate any influence of any trauma and will open the door to alternative thoughts, all of which are relevant to overcoming and building towards getting back to life.

Patience and endurance is key.  Instruct your mind with  “power” and “strength” Keep active, use your inner power and your natural strength. Repeating these words will prepare you towards a healthier attitude mentally and physically.

 We must always strive to develop the desire to understand situations rather than victimising ourselves with events that are out of our control. 

 Ultimately the focus must always remain onto helping yourself to improving your situation and outlook towards your environment and to always be open and receptive to all changes that may take place in your journey in life.

In these situations there is no pill or miracle cure. Just by understanding the process makes you wiser and helps you handle all situations.
