Depression is a psychological feeling of distress and self-imbalance. It is not an abnormal feeling, though not all of us feel the way that others fell. There are different types of persons and they have different ways of dealing with depression. Although the management of depression differs from person to person, taking into account the type of the personality and how they perceive it, there are common ways on how we can manage depression.
How does depression come to life? Why do we feel such thing?If anything went wrong whether in the family, in the environment, and in our personal life we feel depressed. It is the body’s reaction to failures, disappointments, and environmental constraints that we did not expect and turns us to our downfall. There are times wherein we perceive things in a positive way, or what they say, an optimistic point of view.
The depressed feeling does not creep within us that long. We may feel depressed but it does not linger on us that long. There are some people that take it by the heart. There type of people clings on the that feeling of depression that sometimes, it affects the way they carry themselves, their mental and social state, or even their sanity. Let us take a look at how optimistic people manage depression.
Optimistic people think of second chances. These types of people often think of the struggles as a challenge. They think that if they fail, there is always a second chance. They don’t linger on what they did wrong, they think of what they can do to do it deal with the struggle the next time. Depression caused by losing the fight should be managed through positive thinking and second chances.
Optimistic people manage depression by looking at an optimistic point of view. They still believe in the sanctity of human life and divine intervention. They believe that once a test is given to you, even if they fail and lose it, they have the time to bounce back and win it the next time. They believe that divine intervention is what helps us see it through and they don’t easily give up to these types of depression.
Optimistic people faces the challenge vested on them. Since giving up is not into their priorities, they face and manage depression by not thinking about the stuffs that have caused their depression and they have the ability to divert their attention to more worthwhile activity to forget about the whole thing. This might not be easy to do. However, since they do not creep to the feeling of depression, they can easily divert their attention. That is what optimistic people are good at.
Well, these are just some of the defense mechanism in managing depression. Although there are times when we really cannot endure the feeling, we have to deal with it and overcome it so that we will keep our sanity intact. These might not be true to all types of people but if we know what we can do, and we feel like doing it will help us manage depression, go for it. There is no harm in trying. We might be successful in fighting and dealing with the feeling of depression to keep our sense of reason and individuality intact.
