I posted the following on my facebook coaching page this week;
Feedback I am seeing is telling me that MORE PEOPLE "liked" that post than almost anything else I have ever posted. Interesting to me.
That says something for sure;
1. Many people are feeling some depression, or they HAVE in the past.
2. Many people know other people around them who are depressed.
3. People "get it", that WHO we spend time with is important.
4. That as we "realize" that truth, we have the option, choice and RESPONSIBILITY to choose different people to spend out time with.
This means letting go of people and relationshiips that deplete us, harm us, diminish us, demean us on any level. It means we have to take the step to make that change.
Like Michale Jackson sang ; "If ya want to make the world a better place, take a look at YOURSELF and make the chance"..... (something close to that).
Depression can be described as "anger , turned inward" on one's self.
If we are angry at someone, or something about our life on a regular basis and we do not express it, it goes inward. "Emotions buried alive, never die" is the name of a great book. It is also, the truth.
First; a person needs to realize they are not happy, or in fact they are numb, or just so checked out of their emotions they basically feel NOTHING. They need to realize they are not feeling "alive and juicy",
Then to realize that in doing so they are keeping hidden or buried the very thing, the very information they need to face; to come to terms with.One needs to give voice to that anger, in a safe space, and in a healthy way, to release it. Venting angrily and out of control to the wrong individual and or in the wrong "place" is not the ticket to healing.
Depression can be healed, most of the time. While some people may need medication due to chemical imbalances in their bodies, most people just need to be truthful with themselves about their lives, and how they really feel, and what they really want and NEED to feel relaxed, peaceful and able to experience happiness and joy.
Love love love Stuart Wilde, whom I mention often as he was a most fabulous writer of spiritually humorous put POWERFUL books. I recommend him highly. He just dies this ipast year or so, but left a legacy for sure. I leave todays writing with one of his book titles;
"Life was not meant to be a struggle".....
If you are depressed or know someone who is, this is a reminder that help is available and things can change. Staying stuck in it is NOT going to help. The sooner action is taken the sooner someone will be feeling better.
My offer still stands; a complimentary coaching session to anyone who is curious about what life coaching is and to feel into if it could help them.
