Dealing with Depression
Since the day we were born we have all had highs and lows. Some of us come out of it easily and some of us have difficulty coming out of that state of mind. Depression is really an illness one we should never take too lightly. Please try being as kind as you can and just because that person isn’t dealing with things the way you would please don’t judge their journey. Never say to them “snap out of it” Or “are you still talking about that!” “Why are you worrying? It will sort itself out anyway!”
Just listen, be that friendly ear. Be that loving voice, be the friend they don’t think they have. Show them that the next hour is amazing, the next afternoon, the next day. Even if they don’t respond to your messages please don’t stop, just let them know they are a beautiful being of light. Let them know they are loved and why. If you were low what would you want to hear and not from an egoistic perspective but from the heart. Be that voice you seek, that hug you need, the love you wish to receive.
Postnatal depression is a very difficult emotional time. Whether you’re in a loving relationship or a single mother in either circumstance it is so hard. Babies are beautiful blessings but trying to handle a small demanding person who cannot yet speak after a difficult and sometimes traumatic birth, learning to find yourself again, the changes in the body and other circumstances is a lot to deal with.
Bipolar is severe character changes, being high and full of energy and ideas one minute and completely depleted the next.
Please don’t give up on our brothers and sisters. They need us.
One thing that can help is meditation especially chakra balancing ones. The chatter of the mind creates many emotions that feel so real. When we feel low it is in spiritual words a separation from source whose energy is there all the time. We are living in a time and space where there is hardly any silence anymore. We are always doing something, watching something. Everyone is just so busy trying to get somewhere, do something, be someone. We then spend more time either fixing something from yesterday or bettering ourselves for Tomorrow. We forget to live in the now. Those that feel down we put off being there until tomorrow because we feel we have other things to accomplish. Don’t get me wrong, life does get in the way sometimes. 5 minutes out of 24 hours will not break your time bank. Send them prayers and healing.
If you are feeling down and reading this please let me advise you, you are beautiful, your life is sacred, you are worthy and I’m here for you. All of you. We all are. I chose to spend my life in service to others and it’s my pleasure. I love you all. Namaste 🙏
