The thing about depression is, seems on the surface like, at its core, Depression is identified with Complaining (like a mo fo). There is one other aspect of the set-up for that problem. You might feel perfectly inspired and confident for your next pursuit.
Then, you might awaken and find yourself unable to think clearly enough to operate a ham and cheese sandwich! The feelings as one gets through that lack of clarity and emotional detritus might delay or even derail the objective you’ve begun. Then, you have the fallout from not keep any continuity, when you desired to develop your prospect, further. If you only have easily achievable objectives for animal comfort, you might be fine- until you confront any actual aspirations. Aspirations can be the double-edged sword of Desires. Any time you start to feel short of energy and sad, you might find you are actually trying to achieve something that is Futile. The trick is, to disengage from this feeling when another approach might take you where you are going.
Sometimes, the goal we've set is based in illusion- it just isn't going to turn out well. It's wise to know when the primary intention you hold is not where you're meant to go- and not to confuse that with turning back off your path when you did have a correct primary intention. Even you do get frustrated with going in what is, in fact, the right direction, again, it just might be a matter of methods. But what you'll need is to fundamentally enjoy the process, and accepting that hey, you will have to try different strategies. Meanwhile, be patient with yourself. Maybe some people are geared towards a high from creating misery for others, but basically speaking, there is probably a version of what makes you happy that will also really harm no one. Allow many many things, then, to make you happy.
Letting go of thoughts, period, is a very fruitful self-discipline to build, as you will be rewarded with strength in the quietude. You don’t need to be dead to enjoy something akin to the peace of the grave, so don’t be afraid to let your agendas clear, and come back to the present moment on the back of a thought of contentment.
Even if it’s a long period of repair, think of it as building the foundation, first for contentment. Your inner self must be a sanctuary, or you will seek all manner of distractions to deal with how crowded things are inside your life events and mind.
