Fighting depression is a recipe. Doing one thing different alone may help and it may lead to more change, but to really fight the beast you need a recipe. Because depression steals your energy and your motivation, following the recipe can be very difficult…
When we were kids, we used to enjoy every moment of our life. We were surrounded by ecstatic group, the group we were proud of and used to flaunt about. We had no goal, no tensions, no work pressure apart from school homework and we never considered our life seriously. We weren’t serious about it. Those were halcyon days of our life.
Where did we get the motivation from? What was the motivational factor? Who injected inspiration in us? What made us smile?
You guessed it right.
Friends and friendship was our passion.
We developed and weaved beautiful dreams in our mind like weaving colourful sweaters.
As we grew older and got to know about life and relationships, got to know about priorities and our life got diverted from personal life to the professional life. As priorities changed, our goals changed and it changed the source of motivation.
Our dreams got shattered like ruptured glass and we adopted the scenario which later changed our motivation and passion. When passion and motivation fade, confidence drops and seeds of frustration burst over.
Result is crystal clear. Depression crops up and we ruin our precious life.
“Follow your passion midst reaction.”
We must never ever end up our passion. Passion makes us. It gives intense happiness which no one can ever provide you. Rebuild your motivational factor and prepare goal. Get inspired from leaders who changed the world. Ignite the passion within you.
If you love singing or dancing, join some institution or organization where you can strengthen and prosper your talent.
Search out what makes you happy. Scratch the factor and do what you love to do.
Rebuild your passion and make a way to achieve it. It not only blossoms you but also nurtures the society.
Keep Smiling… 🙂

It was 10.00 PM. I shut down my laptop. Terribly tired, intensely exhausted. All alone and missing my family deeply and badly.
Days passed and converted in months, it’s been more than two months, and I was living in a 5’ by 5’ room in a hostel.
No entertainment, no happiness and no satisfaction. Life wasn’t going smooth. It was tough. To overcome it, I used to indulge myself in studies and lectures. I was studying in hostel.
I felt crippled and depleted, threw myself on the bed. Dint talk to my lovely wife. Just messaged her Good Night and fell asleep. Believe me, I was too low.
Deadly exhausted like someone has injected a straw into my body and sucked all my energy and confidence.
Beep, beep, beep… Ear-splitting, annoying alarm rang. I woke up, sat on the bed.
It was a new day, a new beginning. Unfortunately it wasn’t for me.
As soon as I sat, I found myself in Eerie and Unnatural situation. I could feel sadness on my lips.
I could listen to my heart beats. I was too low. It looked like someone has snatched and squeezed all my happiness, my energy, my confidence like a mixer extracts the juice from orange leaving hay behind. That morning moment of mine was jolted.
I was in Depression.
I sat quite for few minutes, closed my eyes. Felt negative vibrations.
Suddenly I asked myself, what am I doing?
I stood up, closed my eyes and took a deep breath and slowly released. Did for 3 times and ran towards the washroom, washed my face and brushed my teeth. Came back to room, put on tracks, shoes and ran towards hostel mess. I had healthy breakfast followed by gym.
I did exercise for more than an hour. In between calmly went towards the window and started feeling the morning dew and breeze on my face.
What a relief. I was rejuvenating myself. I can feel someone pumping energy back to my soul. Finally I smiled from heart.
Believe me, that date I had a blasting day. I could able to finish all my study work with great confidence and energy. I was smiling and laughing whole day.
We always face such frightening and daunting situations often. Rather than getting pressurized by it, we must challenge such anti-social elements and should never allow it to overcome. Kill your negative elements and plant the positive sources.
We have all rights and believe me, it truly depends on us how we take such conditions. Rather than blaming your luck and life, better find the path, work out and delete sadness from your life.
