“Depression, a many-splendored thing.” ~ Doc Meek

Monday, January 24, 2011. I am grateful to know that depression is multi- faceted, both as to cause and as to resolution.

  My Personal Journey Though Depression

A friend reported to me many years ago now:

“Depression is the natural result of unwanted circumstances.”

I was steeped in the medical model at the time and was very surprised at what he said.

I wonder who said this originally? If anyone knows, please let me know. My friend said he found it in an respectable academic paper.

Both conscious and subconscious negative thinking pattens about unwanted circumstances can generate neurochemical imbalances in the brain.

Some people take antidepressants to help balance neurochemicals, to encourage the occurrence of more positive thinking patterns.

Changes in neurochemicals can indeed sometimes promote more positive thinking patterns and lighten mood.

Amazingly the opposite is also the case:

Consciously changing subconscious negative thinking patterns towards more positive thinking patterns can often alter neurochemicals for the better.

What promotes conscious and subconscious negative thinking patterns?

Try the evening news for starters. 😮

P.S. I remember Harv Eker saying:

(1) “Don’t believe anything I say.”

(2) “This is my experience. Test it for yourself.”

(2) “Nothing has any meaning except the meaning you give to it.”
