Dearest Mrs Dools,
It saddened me to hear that your not doing at all well..
I like Deebi’s suggestion of reading your positive diary...by reading it, It could hopefully give you some strength in knowing that you do have some positives in your life..
Depression isn’t a natural part of us..it’s something that finds different people and tries to take over their thoughts and mind... it in a way turns us against us...it feeds of our negativity and grows stronger...as hard as it is to try to overcome our depressive thoughts...We can do it..by fighting back with positive thoughts and denying our depression time to grow and take over us..
We need to take our mind elsewhere..some different...Just little things, maybe sweeping the floor with music playing and challenging ourselves to sweep it, looking at each stroke and see how much dirt, dust etc we have collected, noticing how much brighter the floor looks...or sitting outside with paper and pen, counting the trees you see, counting the birds that listening to the songs of birds and write down how many different ones you hear...how many butterflies are flittering around that you see...Just simple little things, to help us re engage the positives that have temporarily left us....
I have wind chimes hanging from my veranda, when the breeze blows on them, I listen to the delicate sounds they make..so peaceful..do you have any wind chimes hanging up around your house or trees....
Its hard Mrs Dools...to force ourselves to do things when we are in a deep depression...But if we can and by doing it mindfully...It hopefully at times can help us to start taking control of our mind..bit by bit...
Depression wants us to do nothing but think of it...I know your stronger then your depression, you probably don’t think so at the moment...but you are.. Please dear mrs Dools...believe in yourself..like we all do...Your inspiration to us, your beautiful words to us, your kindness and care to us..is who you really are..and I want to thank you for the beautiful person you are..
Kind thoughts...love and hugs...dear precious lady..💖🤗.
