Depression is a sad thing, no doubt, it can create alienation among family and friends, subsequently loneliness for the person suffering. Loneliness and depression are not uncommon; there are many people that suffer from this ugly disease. Many do not talk about it, in which case the cause does not get pursued and the problem does not get solved.
Depression alone is a dismal situation, add loneliness to that and it just multiplies the feelings and it seems everything is beyond your control. There are many solutions but people just do not want to talk about it. Talking is good. It releases those fears and gives an opening for help. There is a lot of help if you were to just look around and get closer to those you care about.
To conquer the loneliness and depression is a big step towards recovery and back to living a life you once knew – happy, involved and close to family and friends. Your depression worries those that care even if you do not realize it, probably because you are caught up in that dismal world of black and white. Dig into your mind; find what is causing this downward spiral that you are spinning in. If you can find the cause then you can cure it.
If it makes you feel better not to talk about it at the beginning, write down all those sad thoughts and things that make you feel that way, you will find getting that stuff out of your system, even down on paper makes a difference and it may not be as bad as you thought. It is like your pet shedding unwanted hair, it is a relief to get it out of the way. Once you have that out of the way, then you can feel better about talking. The people that care about you will not turn away, they will want you back.
The first step, and it can be a big one, is to free your mind of whatever is coaxing it into loneliness and depression. This is probably the biggest hurdle to overcome, the very beginning, the initial move to getting your life into some semblance of normal order. You will notice the difference in those close to you as your condition improves, as you participate more in family events. Find your friends again, go on a trip, something new somewhere different. Loneliness and depression does not have to rule your life, if you look around and compare that which has a hold on you and what difference it would make if that was gone, you will most certainly want to make a move to recovering and banishing that dark abyss from your soul returning to well being.
Nobody enjoys going through life with these feelings, feelings that entice you into a solitary world of nothing but misery. There is help, no matter what. Begin by getting together with your family, talking with your family allows them to come into your sunken state and helps them pull you back. See it as being rescued from that gloomy world. The more time you spend alone, the deeper that hole becomes. It is something you must be strong about, determined, yes, you want to be happy so go to it, start today.
As an added note, if your depression has gotten deep enough you have thought about suicide you should go to your doctor immediately. There are medications that can put you back on the right track. You just need a little help to get there. Do not think about just yourself, but those you love you and want to have you in their life.
