Transforming Your Thoughts is vital For handling Depression


The Greatest Teacher that ever lived once said: “As a person thinks in his heart so is he”. What you constantly consider a situation is a sort of inevitably what becomes of it; therefore it's paramount that in any and each situation our thinking should be positive.

If there's one fact that religion, science, and psychology seem to agree on, it's that the mind is indeed the most powerful force in the world. Yoga sages have stated that whoever can control the mind is indeed a powerful individual.

That said, it is obvious that in coping with stress and dealing with depressive situations, one should make every step to think positively as perhaps the first weapon to combat negative challenges.

Friends, everything starts with a thought.

Moreover, thoughts have the innate ability to phenomenally materializing into what it is that is projected in your mind. Consequently, it will be safe to mention we should all make attempts to change our mental habits to belief rather than disbelief as much as possible. This of course will be most paramount when seeking ways to overcome depression.

Characterized by feelings of worthlessness, doubt, pessimism, if we allow depressive thoughts to constantly permeate our minds, they could gain the ability to diffuse into our speech and actions and consequently could aggravate the very situations and challenges one is facing which will be causing depressive thoughts within the first place.

When handling problems arising from depression, the famous psychologist William James has this cryptic quote to say: “Our belief at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking or challenging situation is the one thing that ensures a successful outcome at the end”

This reminds me of another powerful verse in the Bible found in Mark 4 verse 23: “If you'll believe, all things are possible to him that believes”.

Combining the gist and effect of both quotes, one can see that it's imperative to believe and expect the simplest in any situation one may be going through. In so doing you will bring everything into the realm of possibility and success.

In no way does this mean that we should always sit back and just expect things to miraculously change. It means we must change our thought processes about our situations first, perform the actions that will lead us to and keep us on the path to success at overcoming our challenges and as words, thoughts, and actions have an impact on one another as factors, one is also advised to constantly speak positively about what challenges one may be facing.

Combining all three factors will greatly help in ensuring each component (most importantly our thoughts) remains positively tuned towards overcoming our depression.

My friends, although it's going to not always be a simple journey to beat our challenges, I would like you to remember this quote also “Life’s problems are like knives, which either serve us or cut us, as we grasp them by the blade or the handle: Grasp an issue or problem by the blade and it cuts; grasp it by the handle and you'll use it constructively”

Take the quote above into consideration and keep it in mind my friend as THE reason to constantly have faith and to hope for the best when it comes to dealing with depression. It is perhaps the one thing that will ensure success in the end.
