I love working with people who are depressed – I know it sounds weird, but it is true.
It is because people who suffer from depression are smart, capable and caring people, who, once they know how, can switch those strengths and use them in more positive and useful ways and start to feel better quickly.
It is fantastic privilege to help someone come back to life, feel better about themselves and start to enjoy life again.
Let me explain…………..
Depression is not a feeling – depression describes what we do with your feelings – you depress them.
When you depress your feelings you stop being overwhelmed by powerful emotions like anger, grief or fear/stress and it
means you can keep going however you really feel inside as they safely shut away.
It is a good coping strategy in the short term, but in the long run leads to the symptoms of depression and most people suffer from quite severe anxiety as well.
People end up being very good at coping, keeping going and taking care of other people, but not so good at enjoying their own life and feeling their own feelings.
It takes a lot of determination to depress your feelings to keep going and take care of other people which is why it is strong, determined, caring people who get depressed.
How To Recover
people also use those same characteristics to recover and when they start to feel and express their emotions, in useful and safe ways, they start to feel a lot better, usually quite quickly.
…….And this why I love working with people who are depressed.
