Depression And Thinking Right
Posted by Nick Niesen on October 26th, 2010
So what does depression and thinking right have to do with feeling happy again. Well you will find that the two are actually interconnected. Generally people who have depression don?t think the way a normal happy person does, therefore one of the best things to do is to change the way that a depressed person thinks.
So how can you change the thought process of a depressed person? Well depression and thinking right can be easily achieved if you know and follow the best methods. Basically a depressed person likes to think about how bad their life is and how no one cares about them. People must understand that all they really want is for someone to notice and to love them.
So what does this have to do with depression and thinking right? Well most people believe that depression is some sort of genetic disease that holds someone back from feeling the way most people do. We couldn?t be further from the truth. Depression isn?t a disease, it?s just a state of mind that we as the people trying to help someone who is depressed must make sure we know what it is they truly want.
If they are lonely, spend time with them. Even if that just means sitting down and listening to them moan for a while. Be careful though, if you allow a depressed person to sit and talk about how depressing their life is, they will just end up going into an even more depressed state. If you notice this happening, snap them out of it immediately, by changing the subject to someone that has nothing to do with what they are talking about.
Life coach Anthony Robbins talks about one time when he was listening to someone talk about how depressing their life, he actually changed their state by pouring a glass of water on them. Well you can imagine how the person would have reacted. They thought he was crazy, however Anthony achieved what he wanted to, he changed their state. See if you can come up with your own methods of state change.
So as you can see depression and thinking right go hand in hand. If there is someone you know that seems a little depressed, then instead of just saying ?oh well they?re just depressed? try thinking about what you have learnt here. Put yourself in their shoes and think about what you would want if you thought that everyone didn?t like you because you were depressed. What would you want. So that?s it, depression and thinking right and the methods of solution.
