Now, what is this secret?
It is taking the courageous step to share your pain.
One of the major reasons why many cannot overcome depression today is simply the fact that they have decided to keep their pain to themselves. They fail to realize that a problem shared is a problem half solved.
Are you depressed? There is a cause; there is a reason for your depression and you know it very well. Perhaps, it is a particular challenge you are going through in one area of your life or another. May be in finance, relationship/marriage, academics, health, business, etc. It could be a mistake you made that is eating you up. It could be a sexual abuse (a rape) you suffered from someone you trusted, e.g a family member or friend. Whatever is the challenge that is giving you pain which in turn is making you to feel depressed, don’t keep it to yourself. Don’t keep silent. In other words, open up. Let it out.
Yes, look for someone TRUSTWORTHY to share that ugly story of your life that is eating you up with and seek wise counsel.
Note the word, TRUSTWORTHY.
Don’t share your story just with anybody. Not one who will run you down, make you feel worse or someone who will broadcast you after hearing your ordeal.
Look for someone trustworthy; one who you can confidently confide in. One who can encourage you, give you the right counsel, and tell you that there is hope for you no matter how bad your story makes you look.
The moment you are able to share your bitter story with the right person, you will never remain the same. You will instantly feel better about yourself. This does not mean that the challenge will automatically disappear. No, but to a great extent, you will be relieved of your fears and worries. The wise counsel, the words of encouragement, the love and care you will receive from the person you confide in will make you have a better perspective about your life.
Yes, this is one way you can become a ‘happy better you’ when it comes to dealing with depression. If you are a victim of depression try this and see the wonder it rocks.
