Depression or any similar imbalance is just a signal that you have programs that contradict each other. Your beliefs (probably subconscious ones) don’t line up with your desires and they are pulling at each other. So change your beliefs or change your desires. It’s helped me so much to realize that thoughts dictate emotions and you ARE in control of your thoughts even when you can’t control your emotions. It’s all about where you focus your attention. You don’t have to pretend the unfavorable circumstances don’t exist, that’s foolish, but don’t focus on them except when you can do something about it. I know, easier said the done, right? So brainwash yourself so no one else manages to do it.
