Overcome Depression

You have to make a choice right now! You have to decide that you believe you can create and manage your own destiny. You must realize that you are what you think about most. Whatever you choose to think about will become your life experience. When you are feeling low you are thinking bad thoughts and the chances are if you are feeling good you are feeling good thoughts.

It is very important to keep track of your feelings and if you are feeling low, change your thinking immediately. You can do this by imagining something beautiful, a beautiful place, imagining how you wish your life to be, funny times you have had, a loved one, listen to music you love, imagine a beautiful baby etc. whatever works for you. If one thing doesn’t work try another. This will change your thinking and put you back in the right frame of mind.

The most important thing to realize is that it is impossible to feel good and at the same time have bad thoughts. This is a very important point for the depressed person. Depression by its nature makes us think bad thoughts. We all know when we feel good because we are having good thoughts and likewise we all know when we feel bad because we are thinking bad thoughts. According to the laws of attraction your thinking is the primary cause of everything.

What are you feeling now? If you are not feeling good focus on your feelings and purposefully change your feelings to good feelings. You can do this by closing your eyes and focus on feeling good and at the same time smile for one minute. This may take a lot of work for the depressed person but believe me the more you try it the easier it becomes! I have always recommended that people should always seek professional help for their mental illness. So if you need help do whatever you have to do to start on the road to recovery.

People who suffer from depression and related mental illness should take as much help as they can get. That is part of the secret formula to overcoming depression. Seek and you shall find. Correct, well intended help will make you feel better and you will think happy thoughts which will put you in the right future to create the future you desire.

I am a long time fan of an old saying ‘when the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear’. Get yourself in the right frame of mind for recovery and your teacher will appear too!
