In my own journey,I spent over 20 years trying to think my way out of depression and it only got worse, It was not until I learned how to silence my mind, that I could hear my heart, and so I started feeling the pain of depression and allowing those feelings that had been locked inside me to fully express. For me, Depression was a gift for it drove me to find my own soulutions.
So now , I listen to my heart and body and obey them, whatever feelings come up I express them in the moment (depending on location, haha) and allow them to discharge. Depression was just a spiritual wake up call, a rite of passage and a natural human response to having to live in such a corrupt and oppressive society!
