How to Heal Yourself from Depression When No One Else Can

by Amy B. Scher

Overview

If you've ever experienced the draining, exhausting pit that is depression, you'll understand that it can often feel isolating and impossible to fix. When it seems like everyone else has attained an elusive state of happiness, it's tempting to go searching for someone or something that can help sideline your feelings.

In How to Heal Yourself from Depression When No One Else Can, Amy Scher reminds us that the only one who can really help reset our depression is us. By examining the link between how emotional trauma and stress affect our physical bodies, we can gain new insights and steer clear of repeating unhealthy cycles.

As Scher explains, the cure for depression is not about finding a literal cure, but about getting back in touch with our deepest wants and needs. By learning to listen to what depression is telling us, we can eventually learn to heal and recover our best selves.

Favorite quote

Depression is the literal depression of self. It happens while you are busy not meeting your own needs and, even unconsciously, are grieving for them. Depression is often born from the deep conviction that I don't matter.
