Yes, depression is becoming an overwhelming problem for more and more people.
Because of all the stress regarding work, concerns about money and pay the bills, and the speed in which we are expected to work and live our day to day life, also the emotional pressure, the challenges and difficult situations that we experience through our intimate relationships, the family life issues that keep us on eggshells to meet expectations, these all seem to keep us in a continuous chronic state of stress. The list could go on.
All of the above can sometimes become so overwhelming that people don't actually know how to remove themselves from this chronic state of feeling stressed and negative.
In this process people loose their identity, the clarity of thought, they become unable to honour themselves and their own needs, they forget how to be kind to themselves, loose their own TRUTH, loose their purpose... they become lost, and unhappy in general. They become disconnected from themselves.
My advice and recommendation is a healing modality, one called Theta Healing, or another is Psych-K healing.
This is to remove negative approaches, programs, conditioning and beliefs from the conscious and subconscious, on the cellular and genetic level, and replacing those with the positive opposites to be able to get out of patterns, to move forward, to identify with one's own purpose, to handle challenges easy...etc. Absolutely anything and everything can be part of this healing
It brings mental, emotional, spiritual and physical balance, strength and clarity. It positively changes our approach to ourselves, to other people and life.
You can google practitioners, and if they are not close to where you live, this can be done on skype too, or even on the phone - depending on the practitioner.
I hope this helps.
