Remember the movie Harry Potter and his friends and other stuff. Do you remember about the ‘Dementor’, the dark creature that consumes human happiness, creating an ambiance of coldness, darkness, misery and despair?
Yes, the same kind of effect and impact depression make on humans.
What is Depression?
I was searching on the internet about depression. Some scientific stuff came out. There is a different type of depression categorized in medical science. Most of the people who had depression are because of failure, loneliness and bad relationship.
Depression is a common but serious mood disorder. It causes severe symptoms that affect how you feel, thinks and handle daily activities, such as sleeping, eating or working.
Depression was never been in highlight in India in earlier times. But it has emerged with the advent of materialism. Under depression, a person feels the darkness, unhappiness and much dissipation from the present world.
The Competitive world and especially the big cities are very stressful. No one is living, everyone is running and who don’t want to, people push them like, when you are standing at Rajiv Chowk Metro station and crowd push you inside the metro automatically.
Such is the condition of competition and ambition of people.
Reasons behind Depression
We all want success and measure the success with the outcomes but really successful people measure it with the efforts you put into your work.
In this process of measuring success with outcomes, we start comparing and we often surrounded by the fear of failure and end in failure. Failure can be anything like failed in a relationship, in an exam or in life because of not achieving what we thought or somebody else thought for us.
Failure is one the topmost reasons behind the occurrence of the depression. We need to tackle this problem. We all can fight and win over it with some training of mind or with some advanced magic.
You need a ‘Stick’ and wave it in the air and shout Expecto Patronum!!!
This spell is called the Patronus Charm.
A Patronus is a positive force for who conjures one it works like a shield, with the Dementor (Depression) feeding on it rather than him. But in order for it to work, you need to think of a memory. Not just any memory, a very happy memory, a very powerful memory.
Can you do this?
Above is the part of conservation between Harry Potter and his teacher before the lesson on how to protect ourselves from the dementor (depression).
Real world magic spell
First and foremost thing be positive and read inspirational stuff like spiritual and motivational novels, biography of great peoples and their life struggles, inspiration quotes of big peoples who mark the dent in the universe through their struggle Like the Michael Jordan has said “I fail over and over and over again and that is why I succeeded’.
Reading about inspiration and motivational quotes of great leaders. This is the way to train your brain. Write your own quotes, take inspiration from big personalities or people around you. Listen to the motivational podcast.
Increase your spiritual learning. Spiritualism is one of the most common bases of every religion after love. The study, learn and apply spiritualism because as Bruce Lee said “knowing is not enough, we must apply, willing is not enough: we must do”.
Understand the mindset of mind during the time of adversity
The mind has a natural negativity bias. It will always have a tendency to bend towards negativity but we can reduce it or also control it in the future.
When we cut the link with the outer world the only person is with you, is you i.e. your mind and at that moment of adversity the training your mind starts working. You will listen to the inner voice repeating the same positive stuff that you learn in happy times and it will pull you out from the inner self of negativity towards the positivity of life.
We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already. J.K rolling
Life is hard and so the human. Why surrender ourselves in front of tough times of life. As said by Robert H. Schuller said, “Tough times never last but tough people do”. Failure is the part of a process to become successful. Train yourself with Patronus charm (positive thoughts and other good stuff) to defeat the real-life Dementor (depression) be a Harry Potter of your story never surrender against the dark power (negative thoughts) or tough times.
