This is especially for MEN: I hesitate to post this but believe that someone out here will be helped by it… spent 2 hours talking to the colleague… cos when, during my own episode I tried to reach out, no one was really there. Depression, not to be confused with sadness, is real but can be overcome… if you ever feel like you’re at your lowest consider the following:

1. Change your perspective – You’re not alone, everyone has some form of drama in their lives. There are people out there who have the common sense to know all you need is someone to actually listen. Find them.

2. Review expectations – perhaps the pressure you feel is by setting expectations you are yet without the capacity to achieve. Relax, give more time, slow things down.

3. Remove limitations – as humans we tend to box ourselves into one particular thing or way of getting things done – mindset, career, etc. As humans we’re a limitless permutation of possibilities.

Become more. Try these –
Watch loads of comedy (plenty here on IG)
Take long walks
Hang out with friends, eat, sing, dance, watch movies
Read motivational or self-help books
Start a journal – focus on the positives of your life, your goals and plans for the future
Start a new hobby or join a non-profit org
Exercise (sex is a good exercise)
Speak to and encourage yourself
Do whatever it takes to rekindle hope and stay positive.

  1. Self help steps, as enlisted in your advice is good, but will take you no where twice as fast if that is all there is to it. The temporary relief is just that…temporary. Seek God and you will find true and lasting peace and purpose that cannot be taken away no matter the depth of challenge! Depression is real and only God can pernanently deal with it! Don’t let the poor representation of God around you and on social media discourage you from finding Him for yourself. He said..Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. He created U, He alone will show you who you are and make your life what He created it to be..beautiful and fulfilling! Also talk to a trusted Christian friend and brother…or reach me too, if U wish.
