Today, I’d like to talk with you about something I would say I have an authority on, DEPRESSION. I’m not saying that I know your depression, I’m saying that I am pretty familiar with mine. Certainly depression can be as sorted, just as the many colors of the rainbow and their are then many tones to each color and many shades of tones (i.e. in varying depths of darkness).
I have found the necessity in figuring out what it is that makes me feel good and then make the effort to do it. It is tricky, because one of the symptoms of depression is not to do what you enjoy doing. It’s like a snake with it’s tail in it’s mouth. It can’t get out of it, unless it spits out what it tries to digest!
What I suggest is to make a list of at least three things that you really enjoy doing. I don’t want you to be one of those people that says, “Oh yeah, I love to do X, Y or Z, but I haven’t done that since 19…” NO!!! Don’t be swallowed by the beast! Take control of yourself, dare yourself to explore some possible good times. Take friends OR DO IT YOURSELF!
Dare to threaten the beast. Go have some good times! This topic will be further addressed in upcoming mailings. Please feel free to respond.
