First thing I want to make clear is that I don’t want to say this is a quick fix way to get out of depression. Nooou…
Depression must be treated for what it is, a mental disorder, and as every other mental disorder, take time to be cured and we must seek help if we feel we can’t stand it alone.
That’s the simplest and best advice to fight depression ever.
But, there are little habits that we all can adapt to prevent and even cure our depressive state. As well as great things too!
Today I want to share with you one of those great things you can do to ensure your way out of depression.
Great Way To Cure Depression
The big thing I’m talking about is to have something that gives meaning to your life. A Definite Chief Aim that makes you a valuable person to others around you with some kind of need that you’re able to fulfill.
Maybe a Definite Chief Aim doesn’t resonate in your mind. I took it from “The Law of Success” by Napoleon Hill.
Following Your Passion…
Fighting for Your Dreams…
Fulfilling Your Greatest Mission in Life…
The Reason for Being Alive…
These terms should resonate more with you, if not… hopefully, you got the idea.
Passion, like love, is one of those words people use every day without a deep understanding of the real meaning because they usually refer just to be a strong emotion.
The definition I like the most about passion is the one I found on Urban Dictionary
“Passion is when you put more energy into something that is required to do it. It is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is an ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body, and soul into something as is possible”
By analyzing this definition, and doing a little research I discover that passion comes from the Latin word “patior” which means suffering.
Passion then is something you’re willing to sacrifice for (like the Passion of Christ).
The way to find your passion is then just answering one simple question
What Sacrifice Do You Consider Worth In Your Life?
Not saying is easy to answer, but is simple if you do a little introspection focusing on the things you’re interested. Chances are one of those things is your passion.
Once you answer this question you’ll be willing to take action and suffer for what you love instead of depression.
I repeat, not saying is an overnight cure for depression, but it is a total game changer when you have a Definite Chief Aim in your life when you feel depressed.
