How To Cope With Depression

TED: This could be why you’re depressed or anxious

In a moving talk, journalist Johann Hari shares fresh insights on the causes of depression and anxiety from experts around the world – as well as some exciting emerging solutions. “If you’re depressed or anxious, you’re not weak and you’re not crazy, you’re not, in the main, a machine with broken parts – you’re a human being with unmet needs,” Hari says.

We feel this way for reasons, and they can be hard to see in the throes of depression – I understand that really well from personal experience. But with the right help, we can understand these problems and we can fix these problems together. But to do that, the very first step is we have to stop insulting these signals by saying they’re a sign of weakness, or madness or purely biological, except for a tiny number of people. We need to start listening to these signals, because they’re telling us something we really need to hear. It’s only when we truly listen to these signals, and we honor these signals and respect these signals, that we’re going to begin to see the liberating, nourishing, deeper solutions. The cows that are waiting all around us.
