Depression and easy solutions to getting out of it

Why do people dwell on past memories?

Why do people cope up with all this suffering, when there is nothing and if at all there is any, it should be flushed down a toilet.

These are common characteristics of depression. Failure, to comprehend realities, dwelling on past miseries and most of all gaining satisfaction from it.

On the alternate side, there is this innate fear that something bad might happen to people whom you like.

Is there a solution?


But it takes some time and a bottle of common sense.

I say this not because of the above options, but to shake of the system or social supporters of such a system.

They need a scapegoat, and it is high time you realize that you are the evangelical scapegoat.

Take time off, give each of the a piece of your supposed, hypothetical miseries, the ones you are afraid off, the ones you try to hide.

Don’t give it with any anger or remorse. But give it as if you are sharing something valuable, such as say you have received some huge parcel of food or even a prize. Make it look like something valuable, and then you won’t feel bad about it.

Give after a week, list down the number of miseries and fears left.

Should there be no improvement, don’t despair. Go back to the old schedule, but you have a few less of your hypothetical fears and worries left.

Do this again after two weeks. Note the improvement.

Now, also you would start receiving feedbacks from the people you have shared your prizes. If there is a positive response, then you have to really work with yourself.

It would help even if you discuss these problems with a counselor.

Alternately, if your friends, colleagues, neighbors or relatives start politely turning down your prize giving habit, then you don’t have much to worry.

Your theory is not hypothetical; there is a social problem out here.

Each week or two weeks, change your approaches, modus operandi and you would be on the road to recovery.

Perhaps, it would even turn out to be one of the best experiences and lessons you ever learn.
