The Terrifying Fact of Depression

It’s all……THOUGHT.

That’s right.  Let me superimpose it for you.

THOUGHT

Think about it.  Our mind, which is home to trillions of cells, can and has created everything around you at this very moment.  The environment, relationships, feelings, assets, friends, everything!

When I came to realize this back in early 2016, I literally unfriended every coworker I had because I was becoming them.  They would degrade me, look down upon me, and insult everything about Thailand and I was quickly becoming just that.

Was I depressed? Nope.  I had the conscious awareness to realize I was going down a very dark road. A lot of people don’t have that conscious awareness which then leads to depressive thoughts that accumulate over time and form thoughts on suicide.

The feeling of “not being enough” in the world.  I’ve had those feelings 4 years ago.

But what if I told you it can all be undone with just your thoughts? Literally, your thoughts create everything. Your thoughts have created depression (for those of you suffering) and a lot of people don’t even know what thought is.

I just saw a lady jump 17 floors to her death yesterday.  Two weeks ago a young boy was suffering from depression and hurled himself over an indoor balcony, killing himself in the process and sending people into pandemonium just 30 minutes north of Bangkok.

Get this, one was a student and the other had a 4-year-old child.

So, what is thought? I tried breaking it down in my podcast down below.

 

How To Cure Depression In Fourteen Days

Psychiatrist Alfred Adler, “you can be cured in fourteen days if you follow this prescription.  Try to think every day how you can please someone.

There are a few things that I’ve talked about in my podcast, and there are some things that I told everyone that I would prefer writing down so you guys can have it at hand (for those who are reading around the world).  Here is what psychiatrist Alfred Adler said to his patients. *Long Story*

Melancholia is like a long-continued rage and reproach against others, though for the purpose of gaining care, sympathy and support, the patient seems only to be dejected about his own guilt. A melancholiac’s first memory is generally something like this: “I remember I wanted to lie on the couch, but my brother was lying there.  I cried so much that he had to leave.”

Melancholiacs are often inclined to revenge themselves by coming suicide, and the doctor’s first care is to avoid giving them an excuse for suicide.  I myself try to relieve the whole tension by proposing to them, as the first rule in treatment, “Never do anything you don’t like.”  This seems to be very modest, but I believe that it goes to the root of the whole trouble.  If a melancholiac is able to do anything he wants, whom can he cause? What has he got to revenge himself for? “If you want to go to the theater,” I tell him, “or to go on a holiday, do it.  If you find on the way that you don’t want to, stop it.”  It is the best situation any could be in.  It gives a satisfaction to his striving for superiority.”

That’s an interesting take.  It seems that everyone, including myself, who is or has been depressed…uses the personal pronoun “I” quite often.  I’ve been depressed three times (if I can recall) in my life, and it was all based on my personal wants and needs.  There was one time that I felt like a spec in the world and that I wasn’t wanted anymore, but I snapped out of that in a minute and a half.

In my podcast, I go over some stories and how you can rid yourself (possibly) from depression.  This is unlicensed, but it is professional.
