Coping With Depression - Part 2

By Payo W Perry
It's rarely a good idea to try and beat depression on your own, the proper support from a professional advisor plus benefiting from the camaraderie of others in the same situation as yourself will tip the balance in your favour and make things easier. One this is for sure, beating depression is a long term goal and you're going to need others to help you maintain your will and the motivation to do it. Reaching out for help is hard for most to do when they suffer from depression but I assure you that the loneliness and isolation you'll feel on your own is going to be far worse.
Feeling ashamed about being depressed is normal, it's kind of like you have to admit to a weakness. It doesn't matter if you are going to tell a close friend or family members, it feels embarrassing. Just remember that your loved ones are just that... they love you, don't let your depression convince you that you should be alone. With the support of others your chances of getting past depression will double and they will help to push you out and to do the things which are going to be necessary. It's a known fact that exposure to other people helps to reduce the power depression can hold over you.
Joining a support group is probably one of the best decisions you'll make at this time. There's just something that attracts us to others who are the same, there's a comfort in numbers and if it's your first time coming out you could be very surprised and enlightened by the experience. It's going to go a long way to reducing your feeling of isolation, you'll certainly give and get encouragement in return, you'll get some expert advice on the action you should take and you'll probably make some good friends too.
