Poll: That’s So Depressing…

Lots of people suffer from Seasonal Attitudinal Disorder that makes them feel sad during dark, winter months.  ‘But….

Others just have a “depressed” personality and mean the world no harm.  But most people experience setbacks, losses, and the like that lead to long bouts with depression.

Especially with the amount of pressure, thinking and plotting that an Alpha female is put under, it’s likely she too is depressed at some points, maybe more frequent than she’d like to be.

Depression can be a healthy motivator to help you spend time with what’s going on in your life instead of running away from the thoughts.   Sometimes that week in bed, is what most people need.  You’d be surprised at how much your life is just calling for your attention.  But not in a criticizing, negative, fearful way, but in a loving, reassuring and patient way.  Be good to yourself during this time.

Here’s a great book recommendation if you are: Awaken Your Strongest Self-Break Free of Stress, Inner Conflict and Self Sabotage.  In the meantime, take the poll:

    I totally understand missing_pieces! It’s something that I’ve accepted as a part of me like a mac and cheese with some overdone edges, still tastes good:) it’s just my make up. It’s propelled me to do some wonderful work in my life.

    Thank you for this! I know I am not the only woman going through depression but it makes you feel isolated and alone. I agree with what you said 100%. I think a lot of my depressive state has to do with me being so goddamned creative I don’t know what to do first because everything I do is “go hard or go home.” My passion, desires and ambitions can get the better of me sometimes- it’s so frustrating. 🙂
