Hello To My Dear Readers 🙂
Hope all of you are keeping well and Happy. And some of you looking forward to holidays and Christmas celebrations. End of 2016 and going to be a new year too. For me it marks, “Three years free of depression and four years free of mood disorder/bipolar” Now that I know I am free from depression, I thought of writing what I know and how, “I did and what I am doing to remain free and positive” 🙂
From my experiences over about 17 years what I have realized is, “That it’s We that need to really want to change for the better. We alone have to say enough is enough I want to somehow come out of this mess and lead a better life. For this we need Courage To Change and then work towards improving our lives to make it work for us” 🙂
Once you decide to Heal, other factors come in like, Counselling and Medication, according what type of issues you have. You don’t have to feel bad or ashamed to go for counselling or to a doctor regarding mental issues as, “The Mind is in the Body and not a part outside” Its those who think otherwise, who have to be ashamed of as, “They are ignorant” on this matter, as so many are having mental issues just as much as physical illnesses. When we are born we have the right to live free and in peace. And if this doesn’t happen we cannot sit in one place and wait, we have to get up and move towards what we want to do and to lead a good life. That is our right as human beings. If you think of what others might say then your whole life, you have to live in the darkness !!!
This is very true for most of us, and some of you might know this is what happened or this is what you also did. There comes a point, for anything, a limit for tolerance or for being patient what you are going through, or even what someone or some others are doing to you. The above can be for anything. A situation in life, like a relationship , a job or even regarding your health 🙂
When it comes to me, I feel it’s a pity that so many suffer long term. I know each person it can be different. But in this modern world in many countries, so much of medical help is available. There are reading materials, relaxation programs and so much centered on human wellness. I firmly believe that so many can, if not fully recover at least go as far as to keep them under control to lead normal and happy life. Try. Try. Try 🙂
I have gone through a lot. Naturally, or else I wont get depressed and stay that long. The fact is with medical help, time and knowledge gained, you understand and realize so many things that didn’t realize the times you were under stress. When my mind began to settle, it slowly dawned to me the things that I went through, and suddenly it hit me. Its compared to the light bulb effect. As its like suddenly someone switched on a light and you see things clearly. Did that happen to me ? Did I go through all that and how ? I got so much of mixed feelings, of sadness even anger why it was not really explained to me, what it was all about. If I was educated I would have understood what was going on with me, and would made it much easier to manage and would have not gone on for such a long time. But then I realized that in life there is a pattern and each incident had followed each other. This is the best way as, “Once you accept what happened to you, only then you can let go and change” 🙂
In a way, “The mind is a very fascinating and mysterious thing” As how I was seeing or realizing was like step by step. As if everything came together it would have been too much for my mind. Actually this is how break downs happens, when so many stressful things fall on to you at once, that you have no time to get over from one before the other thing or things happen. And for a few days I was like in shock remembering the things that I went through and in wonder how I got through it all. But then I discovered the, “Most important thing about healing”,
This is what I realized. As almost all of us get mentally sick or ill because of stressful things that happen to us or grief and pain given to us by others. It becomes too much for the mind that, “It gives up” It cannot function the normal way so all sorts of funny things happen to us. This is the time the doctors and counselors play a big part, with medical help. There is much to write about different counselling and how that suits ones personality. That will come in another article. For now today its 4th of December 2016, “I can very safely say that I have become well from depression” and that there is so much of Hope for any of you who read this. Again I need to add that a very big part of it is in your hands too. As its, “Your Life for You to be Happy” 🙂
Its a very big achievement for me. So many tell this, above all I am Happy for myself. As in life, basically we are only for ourselves. Meaning it’s we that know what is best for us. Sometimes even our closest family fail to understand or able to support us exactly how it helps as they cannot fully understand what’s going on in our minds !!!
Why I started my blog is to, “Encourage and give Hope and Faith”that you can become well or to keep under control, is possible to most illnesses. And You Must Believe and have Faith and work towards making your life Happy 🙂
Thank you for reading. All what I want is to hear and know is, what I write here help those of you who read to make your lives better. When I know that I will be the Happiest 🙂
Many Blessings of Love, Light and Healing Energies from me 🙂
