Everyone gets down, they have their bad days, feel irritable, just want to be left alone. Then not long after, a few hours or a day or two later they bounce back and are back to their normal selves. Have mood variabilities is an normal part of life. You may have heard some bad news, or you may have lost some or something like a job, car, or friendship. Eventually your resilience results in you returning to your good ol’ self.
For some people, though, living in the lows in the norm. There’s no bouncing back. There’s only more isolation from the world. There less interest from things they used to enjoy. They don’t want to talk, and staying in bed with the curtains drawn and the lights out is the only thing that keeps them comfortable and safe. For these people, depression has a major impact on their lives and their loved ones.
Regardless of which scenario you fall into, help is always an important part of the journey. No matter how you feel, it’s important to realise that the low moods cause you to disengage with others, and this can make things worse. Connecting with someone who can help, will not only help you lift your mood, or lift it faster, but also will help identify ways to not fluctuate so often and so intensely.
There are many ways to get help for feeling depressed including reaching out for help with your family and friends, talking to your doctor about medication, and getting support through psychotherapy with a trained and experienced psychologist.
Psychological counselling can provide a fresh look at what the problem is and how you can change things. It can help you understand how the situation is causing you feel the way you do, and how to change your mood using, often, simple but powerful strategies and techniques.
