sadness and its related disorders can be caused by many things: the death of someone close, losing a way of life such as a job or spouse, a major trauma, poor life style choices, repressed memories, and energetic imbalances to name a few. In addition, new research also shows that the balance of microorganisms in our gut plays a major role in determining mood. Who’d have guessed that! There are also differences in thinking between happy people and those who become sad. There was previously thought to be a strong genetic link for depression. However, we also know that genetics that were once thought to be fixed, change with every choice we make. So don’t be fooled into thinking that if your parents were sad, you will be too. You have the power to change your life.
The symptoms of sadness and its related disorders go beyond just feeling down. There are mental, emotional, and physical symptoms that can arise from sadness and its related disorders, such as insomnia, lack of interest, reduced sex drive, slowed motor response, being easily irritated or frustrated over small things, unexplained muscle soreness or headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, an overwhelming sense of hopelessness, and, at its worst, suicidal ideation or intention. If you are feeling suicidal, please contact your health professional immediately. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You can get through this. If you are concerned about someone being potentially suicidal, please contact their health care provider or the hospital.
If what you are doing is not working you can definitely benefit by seeking professional assistance. Here are just some of the ways a professional can help you;
1) Recognize the root the problem. Depression is a symptom telling you that something is not right in your life. Sometimes you know what that is and sometimes not. A professional can help identify the real cause. 2) Identify the resources available to each and every one of us. There are many tools for battling depression: medication, exercise, diet, a change of environment, cognitive-behavioural counseling, holistic approaches, etc. Each tool or combination of tools that are easily attainable can be used to help you if you know where to look and how to use them. 3) Commit to a plan of action to beat depression. Sometimes you just need a guide to show you the way, other times you need the guide to take you by the hand and lead you through the hard parts. With professional help, you can beat depression in the best way possible with the right kind of support you need for your individual circumstances.
Marriage counseling is one of the most common reasons for seeking counseling. After years of being in a relationship and devoting so much of yourself to someone else it can be physically and emotionally exhausting when problems do arise. Counseling can see you smoothly through this process.
