Depression abounds after crisis. I didn’t know how important this post would be today.
Sometimes life events – some close and some very far away – could have us really feeling helpless and worried. “Helpless” and “worried” don’t play nice together and can lead to our own depression and overwhelm.
This is exactly how I feel when someone I know has depression, is in pain, or suffering from some event. (This is even how I feel when it is someone I don’t know has depression, is in pain or suffering.)
In the world, there are many people suffering with depression, sadness and pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so then, what do we do?
There are two important things that you are not helpless about. And if you focused on these, you wouldn’t feel so worried. You would contribute to making this world a better place:
- How to think about it
- What to do about it
In my video How to Think about World Trauma, I address the first one, and in today’s episode, I address the second one and answer the question on how to be truly helpful to other people suffering with depression .
