Self-awareness is crucial to understanding who you are and how to improve your life. A prescription for antidepressants won’t do that.
Yoga, meditation, and learning to connect with yourself by breathing, relaxing, and visualizing pure, healthy thoughts, as well as accepting yourself in kindness and without judgment, go a lot further than medication.
It’s all about perspective, outlook, and attitude. People who have a positive attitude are rarely depressed, and they practically never need drugs.
If you have a negative outlook, see the glass as half-empty, and don’t take responsibility for your actions and the outcomes in your life, you are at risk of becoming depressed as you age.
You are looking in the rear-view mirror with regret at what is in your past.
Instead, try looking forward.
Happiness comes when you anticipate the future while learning to value the hard-won life experiences and accumulated wisdom from your past.
