Are you feeling Depressed and don’t know what to do? You might be probably thinking that people hate you or don’t accept you for who you are. Don’t know who to talk to when you’re depressed?
Here are 5 TIPS ON FIGHTING DEPRESSION and can also help eradicate low self esteem from you.
1. STAY AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO MAKES YOU FEEL LESS HUMAN. One thing you wouldn’t want is to have depression hit heads with low self esteem. In reality, low self–esteem affects more people than you think. Low self–esteem refers to how you feel about yourself overall. Indicators of low self–esteem include: … feeling bad about yourself more than you feel good. lack of self-respect
2. DISCUSS YOUR PROBLEMS WITH SOMEONE WHO WOULDN’T JUDGE YOU.
Most people make the mistake of sharing the problem with the wrong person. Most times, they judge you or tell people about what is going on in your life and you end up feeling like its over and it’s the world against you. The next thing that come to mind is suicide. It doesn’t have to be a family member or a friend, maybe all you need is a total stranger that would listen to you. You should not expect an immediate solution, all you need expect is the relief that follows.
3. DO WHAT MAKE YOU HAPPY.
people often mistake happiness for foolishness. Don’t get your self soaked in alcohol and weed or constant sex just to get over depression. It won’t work. After pleasure comes your pain staring backyard you. You need to get busy with what makes you happy, be KY writing, reading, watching movies, partying, painting or drawing, just whatever it is that makes you happy as a person. Something you’d reflect on after doing it. It distracts you more from what gets you depressed.
4. STAY GLIDE TO THOSE WHO GIVE YOU REAL POSITIVE VIBES.
This point is imperative. Be it your family, boy/girl friend, favorite lecturer/teacher, whoever gives you more reasons to live.
Ways one can do so:
5. LOOK BACK WHAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED SO FAR IN LIFE The last but not the least! When you pick up that pen and paper to prepare a supposed suicide note, write down ways in which you have impacted on your generation. Write down your achievements / legacies you have set up for people Who look up to you. Also, write down a story of the life of people Who cared about you after your death.
In conclusion, I’d love you to remember that you have countless number of days to fix your mistakes or get your problems solved and you also have a second to take the life you can’t get again after you are gone.
