Recover from the Struggle of Depression
Depression is an intense mood where one feels sad or unmotivated. Sometimes guilt or anxiety is also present. For some, they feel an incredible sense of being worthless, unlovable, or helpless exists. While these feelings may lift from time-to-time, they always come crashing back on a predictable and regular basis.
Learn to Let Go and Stop Worrying
Worry is a mental chain of thinking that is persistent, repetitive, and uncontrollable. Worry mostly focuses on the uncertainty of the future. When we worry, we are afraid that bad things will happen. We plan over and over in our head various solutions to our problems. Yet, we never seem to find any relief from our fear of uncertainty.

Obsessions are recurrent and persistent thoughts, urges, or images. They are experienced as intrusive and unwanted, and cause anxiety or distress. We try to ignore or suppress these thoughts or images with little success.
Compulsions are repetitive, somewhat stereotyopic, overt rituals, or they can be mental acts. Most often compulsions are triggered by obsessions. We feel compelled to perform the compulsion until we have reached a state (reduction of anxiety; a feeling of certainty; sense of completeness, safety/security; or a “just right” feeling).
