    Interesting what advice she gave on overcoming this depression … in the 10 seconds broadcast time they gave her the most important thing to get out was for her “You have to stop, take a break, put everything into perspective”

    That’s the most logical thing I believe anyone can think of. Yet it seems the biggest difficulty for everyone struggling with this is to learn that on an emotional level.

    i agree with you, konstantin, it IS a logical thing, and it IS very difficult to learn it on an emotional level.

    i believe that for overcoming depression, the tool (such as stopping, stepping back and reflecting) is usually not the important thing; what important, and difficult, is picking it up.

    i also believe that this goes for most other improvements on one’s health – from weight loss to letting go of resentments.

    Yes right, picking it up – that’s a good way of saying it. Actually using the advice.

    I say “learning it on an emotional level” because for me the process of going from intellectually knowing I should take a deep breath and take a step back to actually doing it was (and is) a learning process.

    Learning to just feel the depression/stress/whatever and respond to it with those actions – rather than thinking about it so much.

    And yeah, that interestignly seems to be quite universal for any kind of obstacle to overcome.
