Whether you experience occasional bouts of depression, or if it’s something you have to deal with on a daily basis, the state of depression can incapacitate you, and make you feel worthless, desperate and alone.
When you are in the midst of depression, your self-esteem usually gets obliterated.
You may feel that you don’t make a difference to anyone else’s life,
It might feel like there is nothing you can do that will make your life better.
When depressed, it’s sometimes hard to see the point of life.
Does it really matter if you live or die?
Would anyone really care?
Being in a state of intense depression can make you feel like you’re in a hole which is too hard to get yourself out of.
The hole can feel so deep that it seems like you have to climb a mountain to get out.
That feeling can bring you to despair.
Even a less severe depression can make you feel isolated, disconnected, lacking in energy, lacking purpose, lacking direction, lacking inspiration.
They provide a means with which you can help yourself deal with your depressed state.
Sometimes a depressed state can become comfortable.
It can be a useful excuse to not bother with making an effort to try to make things better in your life.
It can give you a good reason to not have to deal with the façade of people’s egos, and society’s expectations.
It can also be a protective mechanism to help you cope with the falseness and insanity of the current state of the world.
Being made to feel like you are not alone, can give tremendous relief to someone who is suffering from depression.
Being made to feel like you are understood, and that you are supported, can give you a tremendous boost, and can take the edge off a desperate state of being.
Being made to feel that your existence does make an important difference in the lives of people around you, can be life changing.
If you are someone dealing with depression, how much pain is enough pain to propel you into wanting to do something about it?
Assisted meditation can be one of a number of ways in which you can take steps toward taking your life back.
The effect of listening to these meditations can be like a having soothing balm applied to a sore wound.
