To win your war against depression – and win it for good – you will have to engage your adversary on all occupied fronts: emotional root causes of depression, symptoms, practical realities, knowing that each step along the way, new obstacles and barriers will stand in the way of victory. It will take a lifestyle change. Welcome it!
You will be faced with the classic depression triangle of emotional overload, mental debris, and physical debilitation… and you will have to seek and assume full responsibility over this three-headed dragon.
Like a great soldier, call upon yourself to do all that is in your power – and be prepared to resort to brutal tactics and squelch the life out of your antagonist, leaving no remnant of its depressive existence. Unconditional surrender.
You must have at your disposal every possible emotional, behavioral, mental, physical, linguistic, sensory, and spiritual armament, both defensive and offensive, and learn to deploy them strategically.
Many of these arms and munitions will be new to you, and it will take time to familiarize yourself with their proper and timely handling and operation. That’s okay. You’ve got a long battle ahead. Just work steadily, improve continually, and stay on the march. Remember, you’re in for the long haul.
