I have had depression all my life,from childhood to now age 65. Why?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wow! That is a simple question but requires a very detailed answer. Generally speaking, depression is the consequences and result of unhealed wounds. When we are wounded in our early formative years, we learn to repress feelings, withdraw and contrat energetically.

Instinctually, we do all we can to avoid feeling 'bad" feelings such as rage, anger, sadness, longing, etc. These feelings come about as a result of being wounded as a child. Wounding comes in various forms, emotional, mental, physical and it can be quite subtle.

When we avoid feeling the "bad" feelings we avoid feeling anything - which results in depression - feeling numb, detached, stuck, blase. We inadvertently shut ourselves down.

It's important to know that depression is not a disease! It is actually dis-ease. It is a chronic condition. The good news is that it is treatable!

How serious is your depression? Is it severe? Are you suicidal? Do you think about suicide? Or is it more of a chronic, can't feel your feelings kind of depression?

I'd like to invite you to listen to an interview I did recently. It may help shed some light on how depression comes about and how it has manifested in your life.

The most important take-away for you is that depression is treatable! The key is to treat the actual root cause and not just the symptoms. You say you have suffered with this your entire life.
