Have you ever noticed that sometimes life gets very hectic, very fast? As that busyness spirals out of control, our minds often struggle to keep up. This can lead to stress, anxiety, and even depression.
When our emotions get all tangled up, it can be a nightmare trying to sort things out. Even the most mentally strong can enter states of delusion brought on by troublesome circumstances.
I’ve lost my ability to cope with reality before. It feels a lot like nobody can relate to your current situation and things will never get better. Everything becomes confusing and instead of cooking awesome food, you’re eating slop for dinner every night because you don’t even have the energy to cook like you used to love doing. (That was the worst part)
Dr. Mark Bertin does a great job of describing what it feels like to spiral downward into this state of mind.
What was going to be a short downturn becomes a crisis because of a mental cyclone triggered by fear, remorse, and self-doubt.
In my case, being mindful of my circumstances was the only way I could recover. It may not seem possible at first, but depression is only as strong as you allow it to be. Take control of the moment and try your hardest to find solid ground. Uncertainty in your future, financial duress, relationship stress, it will pass.
It always passes.
Here is a video where Dr. Bertin explains his take on mindfulness and how you can use it to have a better life.
