Mastering Your Emotions, How To Deal With Depression - The Key To Breaking Out Of Depression (1)

hey this is Leo for actualise org and in

this video I'm going to tell you how to

deal with depression let's talk about

dealing with depression I actually

already have a video on this topic

and now I want to cover it from a

slightly differing GLE so you should

also check out that video I'm gonna link

it down below it's called why am I

depressed in this video I have some

additional thoughts to add so before we

get into the meat of it and I really

want to give you something here that you

can take away with you and you can sort

of take action on so this can be a very

powerful video for you if you take it

seriously and you really listen and open

your mind to what I'm telling you before

we get into that though what I want to

talk about is the different types of

depression that are out there so I think

it's important to basically distinguish

between two types I'm saying that

there's two types there's basically hard

core clinical depression which is

actually a very rare thing and that

means that you have actually something

in your brain that's eliminating your

ability to be happy this could be a

genetic thing that you acquired this

could be something that happened because

of the way you were raised or the way

you you were you were birthed so you

literally got missing neurotransmitters

and because of this something's going

wrong you're not getting the kinds of

levels of happiness that you should from

your life this is clinical medical

serious depression now the problem is

that most people like to think that they

have that when in fact that's not what

they have what they actually have is

they have a much more milder version of

depression which is really a

self-inflicted form of depression which

comes about from having bad psychology

so the analogy they like to use here

is think of it like a computer right you

have a computer and you've got the

computer hardware and you've also got

the computer software now if you're

having a problem with your computer

that's running slow you've got bugs and

glitches and in a way that it's working

then you could have basically two

fundamental types of problems one is

that you could have faulty equipment

inside the computer the hardware could

be bugged out because there's some bad

circuitry in there so it's just

defective hardware the other type of

problem you could have is that you just

have bad software there's a bug in the

software you've got a virus in the

system or something is corrupt there so

the software is running in correctly

now with depression it's actually

probably similar to what it's like with

the computer when you have a problem if

your computer rarely is the case that

you've got bad Hardware usually it's the

software that's the problem you've got a

virus or something like that is going

wrong now it's similar with people who

are depressed especially nowadays right

a lot of people are depressed nowadays

we have record numbers of depressed

people and mostly is because of the bad

psychology that's happening here so if

you feel like you have real honest

clinical depression I mean nothing

against that go see a doctor and get the

medication that you need for that you

know get a diagnosis but also be careful

because a lot of times doctors will like

to medicate you when in fact what you've

got is you've got a software problem and

that medicine that you're getting is not

going to solve a software problem it

will only work on a hardware problem and

if you have a hardware problem a

software solution can also be useful to

you so don't ignore what I'm saying to

you here simply because it's a it's

psychology it's not just psychology

psychology determines the whole quality

of your life so this is something that

can be very powerful for you even if you

got this a problem with the with your

hardware so here's basically what I want

to tell you about depression I was

thinking about this because I'm noticing

in my own life you know I worked really

hard on my own personal development

and one of the reasons I do that is

because I'm you know I'm wise to the

problems that would happen if I didn't

do it you know one of the reasons that I

do personal development because this you

know it's it's exciting it's fun I get a

lot of like positive stuff from it but

another reason why I do it is kind of

the flip side for negative reasons

because I know how awful my life would

be if I didn't do it and as I'm working

on myself as I'm taking lots of action

in certain areas in my life you know as

I'm setting up my business

orab setting up my relationships or I'm

setting up my my career in my life

purpose and I'm setting up my health and

fitness as I'm doing these things and

I'm really working hard to get good

results there I've also noticed thing

and I'm wondering hmm what would my life

be like if I didn't do all that work to

create this this thing that I wanted in

my life what would happen if I was still

65 pounds overweight overweight the way

that I was for most of my life and I was

growing up how would I feel now what

kind of problems would I have in my life

how would I feel about those problems

you know I wonder about that stuff a lot

of times you do personal development

then you kind of you take stuff for

granted nowadays I take my weight for

grant and I take for granted the fact

that I'm I'm lean and I'm healthy and I

also take for granted some of the stuff

that I learned about relationships how

to manage relationships and I take for

granted for example my money situation

with my business because I was working

really hard to put that area of my life

into place so I wonder you know how

would I feel right now in my life if I

didn't have my business if I didn't have

my life purpose if I didn't have the

stuff that I know about relationships if

I was still overweight if I didn't work

on my negative thinking a lot if I

didn't work on my people-pleasing a lot

if I didn't meditate if I didn't go to

the gym if I didn't look after my diet

if I didn't work hard at my job

if I didn't pay my bills on time if I

wasn't uh handling my family situation

in the right way if I was hanging around

with negative people if I was living in

a bad neighborhood if I was living in a

bad country you know what would my life

be like and I'm pretty sure that I can

make myself depressed it's hard for me

to imagine now that I can become

depressed I'm not a naturally depressive

person but I can easily see how I could

become that way if I let myself go

here's a little story to help illustrate

this I don't know where where I got the

idea for this I think it's like Aesop's

fables or something like that it's like

an old children's story right where they

have they have squirrels right there it

was a story about like a squirrel and a

bird and the winter is coming right

it's the summer now the winter is coming

and the squirrel he's smart he knows

that winter's coming there's not gonna

be enough food so he better run around

and stash all those acorns build himself

a nice nest or a burrow that he can that

he can live in so that he can weather

out the harsh winter that's about to

come the bird or whoever else was the

character in on the other side of this

of the story he was like the carefree

one he didn't care he didn't to build

the nest he didn't want to go work and

stash acorns or any other kind of

provisions for himself so he was just

carefree and living in the moment and

then what happens of course winter

finally comes and the squirrel the

squirrel is nice and happy sitting in

his little burrow with his squirrel

family and he's got all those acorn

stashed up and he's got more acorns than

he could possibly need for the whole

winter he's got enough for two winters

so even if this winter ends up running

extra-long he's still going to survive

and even if it's extra cold he made sure

to make his burrow extra comfy and extra

warm so he's going to survive just fine

but that bird

heard that bird who was very carefree

and didn't put stuff into place in his

life now he's kind of screwed he's kind

of screwed because winter has come and

he doesn't have a nest he's freezing

there's no food anywhere he doesn't know

what to do he has no one to rely on is

just him out there in the cold and if

he's lucky he might survive and he just

might make it just uh traumatized but he

might not be so lucky he might actually

that that situation might actually kill

him that winter might kill him and so

that's what I'm telling to you now if

you're depressed because you went

through some bad family situations maybe

you were abused or maybe you lost a lot

of money

maybe somebody scammed you somebody

robbed you maybe you had some serious

medical conditions maybe you lost a limb

maybe you became paralyzed

maybe you're depressed because you feel

like you aren't attracted to the

opposite sex

maybe you're depressed because you feel

like you can get into a good

relationship or you'll never find that

person that you want to fall in love

with and get married with or maybe

you're depressed because you feel like

you won't be able to to earn the money

that you need your father struggling

financially whatever you feel like

you're stuck in what I'm telling you is

that you're like that bird and the

winter has come and now you're

because you didn't build up that stash

of acorns that the squirrel built up and

so now you desperately need that stash

of acorns you desperately need it or

food or whatever you need that nest but

you don't have it for whatever reason

and I'm not necessarily blaming you I'm

not saying that your situation was

entirely avoidable so maybe you had a

death in the family maybe you had a you

know a string of bad luck or whatever

happened

made you depressed and maybe not maybe

you're just depressed because you have

no no purpose to your life

or you're depressed because you don't

have the kind of friends you want you

know something a little bit more more

ordinary less serious whatever your

situation is in the end the problem is

that winter now has come and you have

not built the psychological resources

that you need to survive and you're now

stuck in this rut right you're stuck in

this rut because whatever situation

you're in whether it's lack of money or

losing a loved one or not being able to

attract that mate that you want you know

whatever it's actually depressed that is

not something that necessarily has to

keep you depressed

there have been many people in history

who have gone through the same

circumstances that you're going through
