In our “Big Book” Depressed Anonymous, we learned that not having the power to escape from depression was our main problem.
What gives many of us the power to overcome depression is to have some new purpose or find new meaning for our lives. In my own life I found that the best way to keep those low moods and depressive symptoms at arm’s length is to write. One day I stumbled across this great solution for my own wellness and rehabilitation – among many. Most times in the past when I felt discouraged and in a funk mood, I would seek out my pillow and rest. Too many times my escape from the mental and physical fatigue would be to hit the sack.
I gave up that moment which in time became my power to get on with that moment which gave meaning to me like no other.
