Healing from depression may be unsettling for you because it represents new territory for you. Depression becomes a habit in this way, and it can be difficult to break. One way to prepare for this challenge is to remind yourself that you deserve to be free of this habit and that being afraid is preferable to being depressed. Even positive changes, like the fear of losing control, will cause fear and a sense of loss of control. The option between comfortable despair and the unknown will become evident as you grow more aware of the threat of changing your life.

One barrier to recovery from depression occurs when a person grows up in a family where parents or siblings were severely depressed. A person’s attachment to a depressed parent or sibling likely causes him to identify with the loved one’s depression symptoms. If this is the case, letting go of the depression can be extremely dangerous because it may feel like letting go of the person. Women and girls with depressed mothers, for example, may use their depression to maintain their sense of connection to their mothers, believing that letting go of their depression would be the same as rejecting their mothers.

The best way to deal with this challenge is to be aware of it and consider whether it applies to you. If you have a depressed relative to which you have a strong attachment, you may want to confront this challenge by telling yourself that the best gift you can give to others is a way to make your own life run smoothly. Your happiness is always a gift to those who love you.

Determine your triggers, concentrate on why you want to change…., enlist the help of a friend. Practising mindfulness replaces the habit with a new one, and set reminders for you. Prepare for blunders, and let go of the all-or-nothing mentality. All of this will help to break the bad habits that lead to depression and to lead a successful life.
