Our dreams are the oxygen we breathe. If we moved towards them all the happiness hormones will be released in our bodies, if we moved away from them we experience all the bad emotions in the world but if we buried them or ignored them we will become severely depressed.
Depression might not be anything but your mind’s response to giving up your dreams or not being able to reach them. You might think that currently you have no dreams or that you are not depressed because of letting go of them but if you examined your past you will find things that you have always longed for but you ignored them when you didn’t manage to achieve them.
Some of us keep fighting for these dreams and so maintain optimism and hope in their lives while others bury these dreams deep down in their subconscious minds and remain depressed for the rest of their lives.
Suppressing your dreams
Some people lie to themselves by trying to believe that they are living the lives they wanted. A man who has always wanted to be the CEO of large company but only managed to be a supervisor might start convincing himself that going higher in the corporate ladder might result in a stressful life.
Even though the man might actually believe the lie his subconscious mind never believes it and the result in an inner conflict and a severe depression
Unless you revive your dreams you will always stay depressed
So is there any solution to this problem?
Yes there is a powerful solution that requires some courage but that is very effective. Remove the dust the covers your old dreams, revive your life goals that you have always wanted to achieve and admit that you were lying to yourself by accepting the way you live right now.
Only then you will start to breathe once again and only then your subconscious mind will find that your life is worth living and that depression is no longer needed.
Don’t believe what most people say, you don’t need medication in order to get over depression but you just need to make your life meaningful, and nothing can make it more meaningful than fighting for the things that you really wanted to have.
