MAKE HAPPINESS YOUR MAIN GOAL, NOTHING ELSE

 

 

 

 

Post Depression – Gaining the Tools to Heal

Goals, hope; these are all foreplay for catalysts. Often being unable to reach goals were causes of depression for me. So I made a new goal on top of all others that I would always be able to achieve.

I want to give back to the community so I am posting this topic. Several years ago I suffered through drug dependency and severe depression. I had no one to turn to and had suicidal thoughts. I went through drug counseling, attended AA meetings, and had a psychologist, the whole whiz bang. My sister is on depression medication and possibly has Bipolar disorder (relevant genetic history).

There are a few things that helped me turn from depression and lead a normal healthy life. The catalyst of my depression was typically my loneliness and my negative outlook.

There are a few things that helped me turn from depression and lead a normal healthy life. The catalyst of my depression was typically my loneliness and my negative outlook. I took things and extrapolated their importance. I’ve never been in any sort of romantic relationship and this was a great cause of my distress. Of course, with kind of poor outlook on life, how could I figure these things to solve them? I would be depressed out of spite, hoping a savior would come along and rescue me from pits of despair. Curious day dreams of beautiful, smart women, coming to the rescue. When these occurring repeatedly refused to occur, it sent me further into the pits of hell. Parents with strong religious beliefs did not help me to be myself or be ok.

 

Being independent and deaf to the help of others, I had to figure this out for myself. Constantly I would look to people with the lives I so endeared, and feel a rage of jealous and self pity.

 

Life is so subjective I can not even hope to understand most situations or outlooks of other people. To be happy I had to look at myself and look what I wanted out of life. Despite the facts of things I wanted in life and figured I could not have, was not the point. I asked myself, do I want to be sad? I wanted to be happy, and of course, still do.

 

No matter what happened in life, I learned to be independent and be able to look out for my own psychological health. I firmly decided I wanted to remain in a state of happiness, and nothing would get in my way. Not spite, anger, past history; nothing. Nor jealousy, nor pride, just me. My mind transformed from this jealous person, to a person who had to understand that these things and situations could not make me happy. A person can face s*** in any situation and needs to learn to come out on top. This is how I learned I must gain the tools to be able to heal myself. I was there when my parents learned I had attempted suicide. The sadness I saw in their eyes was the catalyst for my change. I could not bear to see that look and love in their eyes in toil.

 

I simply stopped caring about my worries, eliminating them.

 

Find your negative reoccurring thought patterns and eliminate them

 

There is being sadness in certain situations and being sadness no matter what. There are experiences that can create sadness in you but you must use these experiences to become stronger and grow from them so you can move on.

 

Even in sadness you can be happy to know the truth in which you can become better.
