We live in unprecedented times where sitting in a room together can become a health issue. However, despite global pandemics, life continues to move forward. For many people, that means a continual struggle with depression. In fact over 16 million Americans have had at least one depressive episode in the last twelve months.
Depression can be a debilitating illness affecting almost every aspect of your life, from relationships to your career. It can disrupt your ability to interact with people in the way you used to, cause an inability to deal with the pressures of daily life, and stop you feeling the joy in the things you used to love. (It can also do all of those things at once).
One of the worst things about depression is the sense of isolation and despair it can bring; the idea that nothing can improve. But if you are suffering from depression, it is important to know that you are not alone, and that there is a way out of this for you. Counseling is a proven way of dealing with and ultimately overcoming depression, and it achieves this in a couple of ways.
A counselor can help you see a problem in a different way or a new angle.
This can take you out of the spiral of negativity that depression can trap you in. Sometimes, a new perspective on a current issue can be the catalyst to get yourself out of a ‘funk’.
Talking through thoughts and feelings helps you gain understanding too.
By discussing your difficulty with a counselor, you are taking the first step to coping with and overcoming depression. That first contact can be a difficult thing to build up to, but the sense of relief once you find someone who will listen and support you will make a real difference.
