    Write it out through poetry or prose. It can be a great emotional release and besides gives you something to do other than preying on yourself,

    I think depression besides treatments and drugs needs great social support from the people surrounding the depressed person.
    Social intimacy is very effective in psychiatric disorders.

    can drugs of any kind RESOLVE depression? i think not. do THErapists help having you come back each week? i think not. does sympathy help? not likely. anyone who has a license is not allowed to heal or cure you-period. "treating" you does not mean the issue is both resolved, and dissolved-GONE.

    why look for a solution outside yourself for something that is internal? does not make sense. (unless all you really want is to take drugs)

    i have seen most people have UNREALISTIC expectations on others and themselves is the root cause of the low feelings/anxiety. most people are comparing their life to a fantasy to what you think it should be, instead of seeing what it is, and recognizing the benefits, and what form they are in.

    by identifying the drawbacks of our fantasies, we can then balance the mind, and open the heart, and begin to live in gratitude.
