When you believe everyone's life would be easier if you were dead

Do you feel like a burden to everyone in your life?

You think things would be easier for your loved ones if you were not around.

Perhaps because you're always depressed or anxious.

You have to depend heavily on your family and this makes you feel useless.

Or perhaps you feel so fragile that the prospects of going out, getting a job and holding the job down terrifies you.

And so, you feel like there's no way out of your negative circumstances. Hence you feel hopeless.

True...

It's hard when it feels like you're jammed in a corner and there's no way forward.

But can I be honest with you for a second?

When you can't stop thinking about suicide

It’s a nightmare really…

You know when you get those intrusive thoughts of hanging yourself, jumping in front of a speeding train, taking an overdose, etc.

And these thoughts come to your mind like it's a solution. Even though you know you won't do anything, because you still have that rational part of you picturing how and who will find you lying there. And how their lives will be violated if you take that solution.

Yet you can't stop thinking about suicide. You think about it all the time.

So, how do you stop the nightmare?

Depression Management: WARNING! Ignore these 5 tips at the risk of relapse

So you would like to  avoid the repeating relapses.

I'll be honest with you, when struggling with depression, achieving all that progress in recovery and maintaining it is really difficult.

However, although its difficult, we can't hide from the fact that there are people who have been able to maintain recovery from their depression.

So what are they doing differently?

Here is a feedback from one of my clients who was depressed from her early teenage years. She was also diagnosed with dyslexia and had some back pain issues too.

Read what she says.

"The sessions have helped me to stop over analysing everything.  I am now not getting overly stressed, which has had the effect of helping me manage my depression better. I have been able to wean myself off my antidepressants, obviously with my doctor’s guidance.Now for the first time in ten years I have been off my antidepressants for almost a month, and I am still feeling better than I have ever felt in a long while. In the past my depression would come back with full force within just one week of stopping my meds.What’s strange is that my anxiety is also reduced even though I have been stressed beyond belief. My sleep has improved too..."

Now over to you...

My belief is that this type of recovery from depression is not just for "a select few."  

I believe anyone can achieve this once they know the system to follow.

So in this article on depression management, I will be taking you through a five part video series on a system  for managing depression better so you too can a have a chance to start avoiding those repeated relapses.

When you never feel good enough because of your mental health issues

I keep ruining things for myself... I am ruining things for everybody... Why is this happening to me?

I am an adult, I should be able to cope... Why can't I change the way I think?

I feel like I am a child.It’s my fault, I am not handling things well... I am missing out on so much.

There is a lot of emotions surrounding this way of thinking that can be exhausting.

It changes you as a person.

It can push you to that place where you lose trust in yourself.

It can make you end up not liking yourself, making you think you are a horrible person.

Or make you hate certain traits about yourself.

Recently, I came across this new research study suggesting that...

BULLYING IS LINKED TO DEPRESSION: NEW research study suggests.

This highlights two extremely important points for anyone who wants to learn how to cope better, emotionally.(See link to the study below).

Important point 1:  

If you blame yourself for being depressed, anxious or stressed, and you've been bullied in the past, this is a good time to put the blame in the right place.

In other words, your depression, anxiety, or stress is not because you ARE NOT trying hard enough to recover, but because of the impact of the bullying/abuse on you.

Important Point 2: 

If bullying can have this much of an impact on a person, imagine what the impact of bullying ourselves is doing to us.

I know I have been saying this a lot recently, but I am not going to apologize for saying it again…

We need to invest time in learning to be kinder to ourselves.

Now, if you can relate to all I have said so far, you’re probably thinking,

“I know this is true, just don't know what to do to be kind to myself.”

And that’s what I intend to address in this article.

When depression turns you into a lazy person

The No. 1 Deterrent to Recovery in Depression

The greatest lesson I've learnt about recovering from depression is that we can only recover fully from it when we are able to separate ourselves from the symptoms of depression.

In my experience of working in rehab for depression. I am amazed that almost all the clients I have worked with had a tendency to see their depressive symptoms as an annoying and sometimes embarrassing extension of their character and personality.

In this article clarify how this problem entraps people in a lifelong experience of depression so that you can avoid this trap. 

Then I will share a quick but surprisingly effective 4 step practical strategy I call The Self-generated Observer’s Perspective Method, which can help you avoid getting entangled in this trap.
