Depression-do's And Dont'sHey guys, Pingu here. I'm writing you to share some do's and dont's when you are feeling depressed, that have helped me personally, and that I think will help you too.
One of the best things to DO when you find yourself depressed is simply enough, thinking. Think deeply, about the WHY to your depression, and whatever that why is, forgive yourself for it. Don't blame anyone else, just forgive.
2.- FRIENDS & CHOCOLATE GO WELL TOGETHER.
Two of the most cliché bits of advice, and now they are mixed. Chocolate has been proved to be an aphrodisiac, but it also helps cure depression. And it is universally known that friends are good to help to make you happy. So get a chocolate produce and a friend (if you don't have friends IRL, try getting an online friend) and I can assure you will feel better. And I say this, because I myself have helped friends who were about to point a gun to their head and pull the trigger. Summed up, Chocolate and friends actually go well together.
3.- MUSIC. HEADPHONES. NOW.
Whatever your taste in music may be (In my case, I'm a metalhead), good music ALWAYS helps lighten the mood. Try, if it is possible, to get a cheery playlist, if you cannot find good, happy song, then get your favorite ones. Try to avoid sad music, even though, I've been personally pepped up by the saddest song in my playlist. And remember, music's quality isn't defined by reviews, it is defined by the FEELINGS, the STORY, behind the song.
1.- IF YOU THOUGHT DRUGS WERE BAD, THINK AGAIN... THEY'RE WORSE
Drugs, even minor ones, are far more destructive when the user is in psychological pain. Not only the initial effect, but also, the ending, and the addictiveness. Yes, I'm including coffee and medicines in with the big drugs. Long said short, SAY NO TO DRUGS.
2. REJECTING HELP IS THE BIGGEST DECLARATION OF IDIOCY
Even though your mom told you "Never talk to strangers", sometimes, talking to strangers can help you get over your painful situation. Yes, they don't know you as well as friends, but there's one thing that's certain. They speak the truth. Plus, there are some really good advice givers out there, and to you, they are all strangers. When depressed, curing yourself is more important than your Mother's advice, EVEN THOUGH, in normal situations, don't recur to strangers
3. DO SOMETHING THAT YOU AREN'T PASSIONATE ABOUT
Guys, have you noticed how so many people go and do boring chores when they're sad? As you may have obviously noticed, it gets them even WORSE. Hatefully enough, reality works kinda the same. And this applies to when you aren't depressed too, but it is not key to feel better. Don't do it. It will just enlarge your depression. If you don't know what you are passionate about, don't worry! You just need to get to know yourself better, in a deeper aspect. Try new things, and see which makes you feel good.
//If any of you needs any additional advice on curing your depression, I promise I won't rest until your depression is just a distant memory, so give it a shot and send me a message//
