The Depressive Self
Our actions our behaviour, (our conduct) is mediated by our inner self, the synthesis of our mental (thoughts) and physical (bodies).
The Depressive Inner Self
Depression affects many people In the modern world, where people can suffer from periods of severe shock, worry and fear, and it can last days, months or years, creating a very real disability.
The depressive inner self is pushing upward complicated feelings of fear, distress, worry and sometimes self pity. Releasing the locus of control from self to others, and finding – directing the depressive inner self to find some form of dependency on others or the state.
The depressive inner self dwells on the fear that is fuelling the depression, to the extent that it cannot be dismissed, the physical feelings of fear and distress, affect the physical functioning of the body, creating severe feelings of unwell-ness, that affect the persons physical and mental health in dramatic ways.
The depressed inner self cannot concentrate on tasks or conversation and avoids the reality of life and the situation they find themselves in. Obsessing about their problems, to the extent that it is all they can think about when they try to sleep and attempt to find ways to distract themselves and avoid reality when awake.
Physical Factors, Illness and Genetics
Depression is a very real physical illness that affects the social harmony of the mind and body.
Depression can have physical or social origins, and both can be treated by your doctor. Physically related depression can be treated but not cured, that is in just the same way diabetes can be controlled with drugs, allowing the patient to live a normal life, it is the same with physically related depression.
However depression that is socially related can be cured with medication and therapy allowing patients to have full recoveries and thus eventually stop their medication with the help of their doctor.
Diet And Exercise
Obviously diet and exercise is very important with dealing with depression because we must understand that it is not just a psychological illness, it is also a physical illness. The depressed inner self needs to return to a balance of social and physical harmony. Thus gently incorporating a regular daily diet of healthy foods healthy living and exercise. Also with medication and gentle client therapy, to help with problems and help influence the client back to a happy healthy positive attitude.
We are social creatures, even if you attempt to isolate yourself, the society in which you live or have lived will have already influenced you in many ways and will continue to do so every day.
Social influence is the other side to our physical illness which synthesises to develop a depressive inner self. Social influences can often trigger depression through finance, love, relationships, work, unemployment and etcetera.
However once a depressed individual has sought professional help from their doctor to treat the physical side of depression, social influences can help to deal with the psychological side. Talking to good friends, relatives neighbours or therapists, can often help relieve the social side to depression. Conversation with a good listener can bring the social side to depression to the surface and create ideas and ways to help.
There is also nothing wrong with skirting around the issues which are hurtful and concentrating on socialising around the topics that make you happy and feel comfortable. Constant isolation and worry about troubles, or constantly talking or thinking about the problems will merely reinforce the depression and create a never ending cycle of worry,
frustration and fear.
Previous Life Experience
Wherever we are in the world or within our cycle of life the things we have learnt and experienced during our life will affect the way we deal with our situation today and people can learn or be taught depressive habits.
Previous negative life experiences should be treated as passing or passed experience and should not be dragged out indefinitely affecting your thoughts throughout the rest of your life. You must continue travelling through life leaving behind your burdens and negative experiences in search of new positive experiences.
Loss And Unfairness
Feelings of loss and unfairness can trigger depression and bring about feelings of hopelessness especially when this is brought about by force, and situations entirely out of your control. Feelings that life will never be the same again or return to any kind of normality that you can be happy with.
However after a time of unhappiness, there will always be a turning point, when things turn around and time has healed wounds, that will come around gently and naturally without force.
