There are people who inadvertently slip into depression . They even have the idea of suicide in their heads or they may have thought about how to do it. No one can be blamed for these thoughts when you don’t ask for help, but you need to recognize when you hit rock bottom.

Once you hit rock bottom, there is only one thing left: start climbing to get out of the hole you inadvertently got into . This is how you start to fight depression , this is how you can spread your wings again … and fly. Next, we are going to discuss some ways you can start to fight with your sad feelings or depression. Remember that if you don’t feel capable, you need to seek professional help.

Move in if you can

If you can move to a better place, do it . Look for work in another location and simply start from scratch elsewhere. If you don’t want to move around a lot, change your location in your own locality … or simply move your work to a different environment. The ideal is to move to another place, because that way you can allow yourself to start from scratch.

Accept who you are

Sometimes depressions appear because you pretend to be who you are not . When you move, you can decide to start being yourself, without masks … And whoever wants you to accept you and whoever does not, is not worthy of being in your life. Never regret showing who you really are, that you don’t care what others think of you, because your friends will accept you and deserve your time.

Find out what got you down

This is important: To grow up, you need to know what brought you down in the first place.  Maybe it was the passing of a loved one like a mother or the stress of work or a toxic relationship. Maybe your thoughts make you feel worse and worse, there are many circumstances that can make you feel bad but you have the power to allow depression to drag you down with it, or not.

It is necessary that in any circumstances you value yourself and realize all that you are worth. Write down your feelings and then think about them objectively. In this way you can understand the situation better, as if you were a neighbor or someone outside your life.

Set small goals

When you achieve things, even small, you should congratulate yourself on it. Set small goals and enjoy when you achieve them, such as greeting your neighbors, smiling at the supermarket cashier, or arriving 5 minutes early for work . Some goals may be easy, but others may cost you more, don’t worry about it and enjoy the journey. You can be the best version of yourself, as long as you really want to achieve it. You need to feel valid for it. Do not pretend to be who you are not, do things according to your heart.

Keep your head up

Some days are worse than others, but don’t let those days get to you. Think about what you have accomplished instead of this. In this way you will start to wake up in the morning with text messages that want to hang out with you .. You can start to feel energy to work. You will have internal changes that will improve your life. .. the world will get easier.

Do not care about the judgments of other people, your life is lived by you and it is necessary that you focus on yourself and your well-being. Life can give you problems and they are normal things. Some will be more complicated than others and from the most extreme circumstances you can learn great things … but remember, if you realize that you are not able to cope, then go to a professional for advice.
