How To Beat Depression
Updated: Mar 25, 2019
There is a gift in depression.
It is a signal that something is out of alignment.
Something I believe in my mind does not match the truth in my heart.
Depression can be a beacon of change.
In my own life, depression was most prevalent in the years before my divorce, and in the last years of my corporate career.
In my heart I knew I needed to make a change. In my head I wasn’t ready.
Fear kept me from following the truth in my heart.
Avoiding painful feelings kept me from following the truth in my heart.
Beliefs about how things should be kept me from following the truth in my heart.
Fighting depression naturally, without the use of drugs, is possible.
I was willing to look inside myself and see what was there.
I faced my fears, I felt painful feelings, I examined my beliefs.
I got help in order to do these things.
I continue these practices. It’s not easy, but it’s easier than it used to be.
This inward exploration is my path to genuine and lasting peace.
Today, if I feel the beginnings of depression, I recognize it as a signal that something is out of alignment. I explore it. I get back in alignment before I get stuck. If I can’t do it on my own, I get help.
With help I found my path back to peace.
There is a way back to life with peace, happiness and even joy.
The way back is patiently waiting for you to say yes.
