Why Does the Current Approach to Depression Treatment Often Fail?
Often, the path to chronic depression starts with one or more traumatic life experiences, unfortunate life events, death of a loved one, loss of something or someone important, a diagnosis of a serious illness or a series of frustrations or life stressors that you haven't learned to cope with in a positive way.
If then you have a genetic predisposition to certain biochemical and neurodiverse differences, or your upbringing taught you mostly negative thought patterns, you can easily end up feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, stressed out, helpless and hopeless.
Realizing that you feel severe emotional pain, maybe even are considering suicide, you seek help.
Your doctor or psychologist diagnoses you with depression. "major depression" or similar
More often than not, you get told that the only way to help are medications (pharmaceutical drugs) and psychotherapy.
You are told that depression is a chronic illness and will always relapse.
You settle to the "fact" that you "have" depression. That you "are" depressed and that's your new way of being.
The Journey from Existing to Thriving...
Some people stay in this state of "existing, but not thriving" - and settle for less than they could have, settle for the comfort of not feeling the pain anymore.
The problem here is: If you believe this version of the truth, you will NEVER get fully well, and will fall short of the full potential that you have to offer to yourself, those around you and maybe even the world at large.
Wayne Dyer said: "Don't die with the music still in you"
In my experience it is very sad that most people are taught to think that depression is a lifelong illness and they will struggle with it for the rest of their lives.
Although that can be true in some cases, most of the time it doesn't have to be that way!
As you probably know, most depressed people in the western world start their journey through depression with medication and psychotherapy.
At some point, most of them discover, that their life is still not what they ever hoped and imagined it to be.
If you desire complete recovery from depression, things seem so complicated...
There are hundreds of Companies offering this or that sure-fire solution. That pill, that course, that book, this novel therapy seems to promise the quick-fix and instant happiness...
And when you try it, it turns out to be complicated, hard, or even impossible to follow, there is no individual support or it is so expensive that only very few can afford it.
You feel like you are spinning in a hamster wheel, running from one appointment to another...
You feel even more anxious worried frazzled and end up more and more discouraged, ready to give it all up...
And in the end, if all this frantic trial and error, and all this effort didn't work, you end up worse than before, even more discouraged and convinced that what you have been told is true, that there is truly no hope for you.
Now you are even deeper in the "dark black hole of depression", considering suicide once again...
Follow your Inner Voice...

All it takes for you is a small first step.
It’s time to step out of that hamster wheel of trying this or that one thing,
