Depression is one of a serious illness. Illness that should not be laugh about or take for granted. Sad to say i'ts one of the many cause of suicidal incident nowadays. Me and my friends based in our own life experience, we also go through to this cycle of life. God created all of us uniquely and differently, there are so many thing we should consider and look when dealing with depression, different approach, different interventions and treatments. I'm not saying you should do this or not do this, I'm not saying i'm right or wrong because we all have different personalities, beliefs and introspective, but i think in someway it could help. One of the best thing to do, to deal with depression, First is to be open to your feelings and thoughts to our family and friends. So that, they will be aware that you are dealing with this illness, they may help you, you can talk about it with them, open everything you feel and think, in that way it can help you to ease what you feel, at some point you will feel you are not alone to this fight, and that they will be there for you no matter what. Second surround your self with happy and positive people, they can soothe and change your vibes. Third make your self busy as much as possible, go out with friends, go shopping, do some sports. In this way at some instance you might forget what you feel and not have a chance to entertain that thoughts and feelings your dealing with. Fourth try to learn new things, like learn how to bake a cake or how to play a violin in this way your mind and emotions will be occupied with positive and different vibes. Fifth travel, by travelling you can meet new people make friends with them and you will also learn different culture. Sixth one of the best thing to do read the word of God and Pray, meditate with his words and promises, Me as for my own experience this is what i always do when depression attacks me. I pray hard and read his words and promises. Because "He will never leave you nor forsake you" God is greater that this depression, believe and have faith. And lastly, if those things I've said can't help you, i think one of the best thing to do is see a doctor and have a counseling, in this way they can help you a lot, because they study about it and they are more knowledgeable what to do and what interventions to apply. That's all guys, i hope it will help you. Godbles!!
