How Depression Can Lead to Your Emancipation

There is an extreme uncomfortableness associated with speaking about depression, but the fact is that everyone is dealing with it, it’s simply part of the human experience; therefore, it is not a topic or life experience that should carry a lot of shame. In fact, if you look inward during periods of depression, you can turn these moments into moments of self-discovery and a beautiful metamorphosis.

What is Depression?

It is important to understand what depression is before putting together a strategy on how to best manage its symptoms. Scientifically speaking, depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain which is caused by having your sense of pleasure exhausted. Your emotions are tired and you do not find joy in the everyday. You go through excruciating mental battles which cause a whole range of hurtful emotions including; worthlessness, guilt, shame, sadness and defeatism. If these thoughts and emotions are left unaddressed, they can lead to dark or suicidal thoughts.

We as human beings are comprised of three components:

  • The body or otherwise known as world consciousness. We need our bodies to determine if it’s hot or cold outside.
  • The soul or better known as self-consciousness. Our souls are the memories we store in our minds that help us shape how and what to think of ourselves.
  • The spirit also known as God consciousness, or the Universe, or however one describes the source of all Power. This is where hope and faith reside.

It is important to attend to all three of these areas in order to become fully whole and balanced. If any of these three are neglected, this creates a dysfunction of a polluted mind, and because your mind is your reality, this negatively affects the way you think, how you feel and the way you behave. All three of the areas that make up the human construct are compromised when dealing with depression; your body is fatigued, your mind plays tricks on you and you lose all faith and hope in your spirit.

How can I Manage Depression?

The best way to manage depression is to challenge the thoughts that are going on in your head about circumstances, about others and about yourself. It is important to really get quiet about the thoughts that are running around in your head and reclaim power. Reclaiming power means switching your mindset from feeling like a victim to feeling like the universe is providing you with an opportunity to discover yourself and recognize the strength that you have buried in your spirit; that, otherwise would not have emerged had you not been presented with dark moments that forced you to tap into this area of your making.

It has been proven scientifically that the best way for humans to learn is through pain. There is a Buddhist saying that says when you get hurt, the result is pain and this type of pain cannot be controlled. However, what can be controlled is your reaction to the pain; the getting angry, the planning of revenge, or alternatively accepting the pain as an opportunity to get better. You can either choose to create suffering or create an opportunity for an emancipation, an opportunity to turn into a better version of yourself. It is only through pain that we learn to value pleasure. Embrace the pain, it is an opportunity for growth and a beautiful metamorphosis.

I recently launched a YouTube channel with a good friend of mine with a mission to bring together a community of more conscious individuals pushing change and by change we mean a different way of thinking that is opposite of the traditional ways of thinking. We have named our channel The Yellow Room; we picked the color yellow because it is a color that represents enlightenment, happiness and positivity and that is the energy we would like to provide to our viewers. Our mission statement is to provide spiritual insights into worldly situations. We discuss a new topic every week and have new posts Monday’s at 6pm. We would love for you to check out our channel and join our community. Here’s a link to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSV4vddMBSpijKewAOldsyA

  5. Pain is a terrible way to learn. Nice article though.

  6. I get depressed very often because of the circumstances that surround my life.
    Through it all, I have not had the need for therapy because I became my own therapist.
    Pain is inevitable but it is what we do with that pain that matters. I have learned the art of turning my depression to a point of innovation. So each time I get moody, I know it’s going to birth new things.

  7. McAfee antivirus is surely the reputed antivirus in the digitized world which was founded in the late eighties. The company boasts about having stayed on the top of the market since its release. But in recent years it has loosened its grip due to the release of some other antiviruses. To make this even, McAfee has upgraded its features and is now ready to take on the market with its wide range of features and of course a personal firewall.
