Lastly, read up on the causes of depression. As you read this information you will clearly see that it is not your fault. Depressive disorders does not discriminate. It affects us all.
There are many ways to fight it including therapy, medication, natural remedies, herbal remedies, music therapy, color therapy, light therapy and shock therapy. So many treatments exist and it is simply a matter of determining what treatment is best for you. That will depend on how severe it is, how long you have had it and other variables.
Also, another technique when learning how to fight depression is to consider doing an analysis on your thought process. It is a known fact that it is not the negative events in your life but your perceptions and thoughts about the events that can create a negative emotional response.
While it seems "trite" to suggest this, it really can make a difference to think positive thoughts. Think about your life as "half full" versus "half empty".
Again, when you are in a sad, depressed state of mind this can be very difficult. As a result, I strongly encourage you to seek the help and support of a mental health professional. Often times, we develop a strong negative thought pattern that we don't even realize we have.
One thing I do with my clients is to help them identify negative core beliefs by keeping a thought record. It's a record you keep that describes a particular situation, the mood you were in and the automatic thoughts that existed.
In other words, what was going through your mind before you started feeling down? What negative thoughts do you consistently have about yourself? For instance, "I can't handle this", "I'm not good enough", "I'll never get out of this". These are negative thoughts that can hold you back for a very long time.
There are so many things you can do when you want to know how to fight depression. The key is to decide "enough is enough" and begin to take action.
