Why are you depressed?

 

Why are you depressed, if you do not have any problems, if you have everything, this is one of the affirmations that many people make before a person who feels depressed, the explanation is simple they say it because they have not gone through a depression.

Anyone can fall into a depression, it’s like when you go through a forest that you think you know and without wanting it or realizing you get lost, you have taken a path that you thought was familiar and you continue walking with the confidence that you will leave it, do not think about calling Nobody, you know how to find the way, and you keep walking and walking, and it starts to get dark and you do not see where you are anymore. Someone told you that following the stars you could find the north but what stars? How are they interpreted? It will be easy but I do not see the way and at the end you see yourself going around without seeing anything and without knowing how to get out.

Have you ever lost yourself in broad daylight? sure yes, but if there is light, how is it that you lose ?, well imagine when you see nothing ….

Suffer a depression is that, is to be in a black tunnel, it is like putting on a dark glasses that do not let you see, although everyone around you see everything as much clarity, you explain that you are not like that because you want, that you have lost the illusion, that you have lost the desire to do things and that you also have a hard time doing them, that you just want to cry and stay in bed, you do not want to take care of yourself anymore, so that a negative vision of yourself, of the future and the world … for what?

Depresion article

Time passes and you can not get out, when the people around you are already aware that something is wrong with you, they try to help you by encouraging you, comforting you, pushing you, everyone does it the way they know or can, and you think that They do not understand you, they are wrong, because you do not even know how to explain what happens to you, if you do not understand it or you.

You do not realize that there is a solution, depression is cured, even if it seems impossible, you get out of it.

You go through the forest, the branches hit you in the face, you stumble and you get desperate, you stay lying on the cold ground, suddenly a hand touches you, it’s a stranger, that in that dark forest, it appears and touches you on the shoulder, it encourages you to get up, to tell you what happens to you while he seems to know the path between so much darkness, you begin to walk together, slowly, calmly, there is no hurry; even if you want to get out of there, and get to your house where you will feel more secure, however that stranger starts to show you interesting things, like different ways of seeing in the forest, it is true that when there is no light, the trees look ghosts and distorted, we see unreal figures that invade us and fear is so intense that it penetrates us, that we believe that we will never get out of there.

In other words, within the framework of psychology, a depression is thinking bad, negative thoughts, distorted thoughts of reality, irrational ideas that settle in us in a way that we feel a pessimistic feeling invades us, penetrates us and we believe that it does not we can recover, are accompanied by feelings such as sadness, fear, insecurity, lack of enthusiasm, apathy ….

And time goes by and you keep walking through the forest, but you do not go alone anymore, you do not see where you’re going, but he does, and he guides you, tells you stories that sometimes you do not know very well because he tells you, you you listen and then in those stretches of silence you think about them, it leaves you at some point that you choose the path to go, and he goes with you, also listening to your stories, asking about them and being interested in the reason for what you tell him; Those questions that sometimes make you think that your way of living, of seeing past things go through the same filter, that’s why the ways of facing situations are often so similar.

After walking for a while, you start to see among the trees, it seems that there is light, it is still a little far away but there is light.

Getting out of a depression means being willing to open your mind, to be receptive to other ways of thinking, to see things differently, not unreally, but objectively, to accept that it is normal for negative feelings to appear, but not to be dragged by them, you can keep walking even feeling bad, it is more difficult but you can, it is the effort of not paying attention to the apathy or apathy, you have to keep moving, dancing even if your feet hurt, they will rest …

You are getting closer and closer to the light, that forest that looked like a labyrinth, has an exit, you have walked with your new friend until the end of that trip, you have talked so much … it is time to say goodbye, you already know that if you come back to lose, you can find the exit, or you alone or asking for help, but you will leave, that gives you strength and security, because there is always a path with light, always, even if we do not see it, you will know it is there.

dep3
Suffering a depression is a painful experience, it supposes a high suffering for the person who suffers it, but it is not forever if you work on it, it can be overcome, you just have to know how, if you do not know look for someone to help you and guide you, because there is always a long way to go and many songs to dance.

Soft Drinks, are really light?

We thought we knew all about light foods that exist in the market that must have a 30% reduction in their energy value as indicated by current legislation, but the Consumer Services of  Andalucía are controlling these so-called light products and demonstrated that light refreshments are not as light as they say.

Nine samples of soft drinks were analyzed to analyze the alcoholic strength, sugars, sweeteners and fat and to contrast this data with the denomination of light and the declared in the labeling, which is the only information accessed by the consumer. The results unfortunately show that three of the analyzed beverages did not have fewer calories than they should have because they are light.

Light products normally have a higher price justified by their healthier character, because they have a lower energy value, less fat and / or sugars. However, light soft drinks are not so light but they are still expensive and are called as if they were, confusing the consumer.

This type of control campaigns are very useful to defend the consumer and to validate the information that is offered to us.
For the moment, what we should do is reduce the use of these products that most cases are not necessary, but we can also compare the calories that the light product that we want to consume with another non-light product of the same brand, and we will know there if in fact it is a food with reduced calories or if on the contrary, they are called light without really being it.

We must put all these types of products under the microscope before consuming them effectively and not blindly trusting in the energy reduction they declare.
