Due to the heaviness of my heart and depression, I suffered a heart ailment. I am still struggling to clear my mind of my past sad experience but the sad experience is still coming back to my memory which made me loss strength sometimes. How did you make your recovery?

Hi, I do have few times this had to consult with psychologist and there many techniques that too simple one to relax oneself if in depression, after these techniques were practiced most of time my depression was so down and many times I had regained my own mental relaxation. Sometime it is just simple body exercise or some time just talk so on goes these techniques.

Thanks Shamrack, I did use your mental relaxation and slowly am returning back to myself. I shared my problems to a close friend and am relaxed a little after my sharing.

share the problem with your good friends. It will release yourself from the heaviness of your heart. If your friend is good, they will give you good suggestion to solve the problem. And also don;t too much remembering the past if it makes you loss of strength.just think about your future, how you can make your future better with your hubby.

We all usually have one aspect of our life that is frustrating, unfulfilled, and simply not working. In my attempt to have a better understanding about depression i've read so many writings about it. How to cope with it and how to prevent it. But there is this one article that striked me most and i want to share to you some important parts of it. The article was entitled: "Unpleasant Emotions". (depression is one the unpleasant emotions). It was said that UE (unpleasant emotions) are gift from God and it do 3 things... 1. UE are windows to your soul. Quiet your soul and ask yourself, "where does this sadness come from? You are sad because ________________. Be patient with your sadness... Remember that you are not your emotions. You are more than them. But emotions-especially unpleasant ones-have the unique ability to show your soul. Feel them- stay with them- and search your heart. Why are you sad? Why are you afraid? Why are you angry? They will tell you of your deepest desires. They will share to you your deepest wounds. And this will make you receive their next gift.... 2. UE are call to action. First, unpleasant emotions will tell you where you are. Second, it will guide you where you need to go. Others don't want to go through this painful emotion but it work that way. To simply feel the emotion because by allowing yourself to grieve, you are loving yourself. 3. UE are God's healing instruments. God is a surgeon, and many times, He heals us through pain. He takes the scalpel of difficulty, cuts open our life, exposes our diseased parts and excises the cancerous tissue of our soul. Sometimes, it's bloody. Sometimes, you wonder why God is allowing the torture. But everything is happening precisely because He does. Because He must heal you because, otherwise, He doesn't really care for you... I hope this could help ease the heaviness of your heart. :)

Try giving him the cold shoulder for a while. He will turn around. If he doesn’t, let go of her and find another soulmate.
