You depressed? Probably, most people these days are. Or they have struggled with depression. There are a lot of great supports out there, Zoloft, Prozac, St Johns Wort, Passion Flower, Accupuncture, Psychotherapy.... and so many more.
What about a cure. I might have found one. Lower your expectations of yourself.
Seriously, allow yourself to be impressed with getting out of bed int he morning, or brushing your hair. Hell I believe that a great deal of the problem with depression is that we have WAY to high expectations of ourselves.
Relax, take it easy on yourself. Your parents, boses, spouses, family, community will all demand more of you then possible. It is up to you to balance that all out with patience and love for yourself.
Give yourself a reward at the end of every day. Something to say, I made it!!!!
Celebrate yourself. That is the MOST important thing you can do everyday. Celebrate yourself in any way you want. Be creative, be thoughtful, be economical with your celebration. Just allow yourself to recognize that it is a fucking miracle that you are even alive.
Enlightenment is not about meditating and letting go and all that shit. enlightenment is recognizing that you are already enlightened and live in an enlightened world.
