Are you experiencing depression?
If you are, you are not your normal self. You lack the energy and motivation you would normally have. Simple tasks are now difficult and difficult tasks now seem impossible. You are most likely experiencing sadness the majority of the time and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Feelings of joy, happiness and satisfaction with your life are few and far between. Your appetite and sleep patterns may be negatively affected and interest in sexual activity may be diminished.
You may be experiencing mild depression, severe depression or anywhere in between on the depression continuum. Whether depression is having a major impact or a minor impact on your life, it is having an impact.
How has depression impacted your life?
Think about how depression has impacted your relationships. How has it affected your relationships? Has it caused strain or distance in your relationships or in your marriage? Has it ended some of your personal relationships?
How much of your time has been spent dealing with depression? Your time is valuable to you and when you are depressed, you are not making the most out of the time you have. When you are depressed, your time is probably spent wondering why you feel the way you do, or why you have no energy or motivation.
How much money have you spent on trying to overcome your depression to no avail? How much money have you spent on visits to your family physician or prescriptions for psychotropic drugs that have not worked? How much money have you spent trying to self-medicate yourself with other substances? How much money have you spent on self-help books?
I want you understand the total impact your depression, sadness or whatever you think you may be experiencing is having on your life.
What would your life be like if your depression disappeared?
Now, I want you imagine what your life would look like if your depression disappeared. What would be different? How would your life improve? How would you feel? How would your relationships or your marriage improve? What would you do with the time that you were once using to overcome your depression? How much more money would you have now that you are not spending it on remedies for depression? Think about all the energy and motivation you would have and how it would create more success for you in all areas of your life.
How important is it for you to overcome your depression?
Ask yourself, “How important is it for me to overcome my depression?” On a scale of 1-10, 1 being "not important at all" and 10 being "extremely important", what rating would you pick right now? If you picked any number above 3, then you feel that it is moderately to extremely important to do something to defeat your depression.
If you are still reading this, then it must be important for you to find a way to overcome depression. What is your worst-case scenario if you decide not to seek help at this time? Your worst-case scenario will mean that your life will stay the same as it is right now or continue to get worse. Depression does not get better if left untreated, it only gets worse. This means that your self-image and your relationships will continue to decline. You will continue to spend time and money trying to solve your depression without making any headway. Your doctor will continue to increase the dosage of your medications because you have built up a tolerance to them, which will only amplify the side effects. Your diminished sex-drive would become non-existent. Success will become unattainable in your mind as you continue to spiral downward.
I know this sounds pretty bleak, but your life doesn’t have to turn out that way. Your best-case scenario can play out if you make the decision to seek help for your depression. What would your best-case scenario look like? Your life would be free of depression, which in turn, would improve your relationships or your marriage. You would now have access to all that time and money you were once spending on trying to solve your depression. You could use that time and money for anything you want. You would have energy and motivation to accomplish the goals you set forth, causing you to become more successful and make even more money for yourself or your family. You would no longer have to worry about doctor’s appointments and prescription medication for depression. You would have an increased interest in sex. You would be in a positive frame of mind and experience feelings of joy and excitement. You would be inspired while inspiring others at the same time.
