We are in the midst of an unprecedented, worldwide mental health crisis.
In the United States, over 7% of Americans over the age of 12 have moderate to severe depression. In Europe, there were 950,000 anti-depressant prescriptions written between 2015 and 2018 to children alone.
Instead of it being acceptable to fully feel and to process our emotions, we’re instead being told to take a pill and it will all go away.
But it doesn’t go away. Taking a pill doesn’t take care of the root issues.
It’s bad enough we’re already poisoned by toxins from our food and environment, which messes with our hormones and therefore our minds.
Pills won’t stop social media bullying, or the never ending influx of advertising telling us our worth is determined by what we own. It won’t stop the media perpetuating stories that our world is a constant state of danger either.
We are taught we need to hustle to happiness, with little regard to our health and well-being. It’s no wonder everyone is depressed, we’re told we have to buy happiness, through products or pills!
People need to know they don’t need to buy anything. It’s also not their fault, they haven’t been taught that there’s another way. Our society has failed them.
I never believed these lies we’ve been told. As a self-improvement junkie for as long as I could remember, for years I tried to discover the answers to finding happiness from within myself. I consumed content on productivity, success, health, fitness, mindfulness, spirituality, creativity, and many similar subjects like it was my job.
My intuition must have been trying to tell me something, because it prepared me for what most people would never have to encounter in their lifetimes. Over a span of five years, I personally endured an abusive marriage, a miscarriage, a divorce and then the suicide of my long-term, post-divorce partner.
“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Through each and every crisis, I’d start to piece together everything I had retained in my self-help learning’s in order to process what was happening to me and attempt to calm the chaos of my life. Intuitively, I knew my fastest way past my experiences meant moving emotionally through them. Feeling each and every feeling and accepting them for what they are.
Eventually I identified specific tactics that allowed me to manage my grief, release my fears, process my emotions, stay clear-minded, and ultimately emerge from the situation as a person changed for the better.
It’s worked each and every time, and now I want to share these strategies with you.
