Judging from the title, you may be thinking what is this person talking about?

How is it that depression can ever be a necessity?

But, just let go of all the preconceptions you have about it and just read onward, and perhaps you may just find the answer to that “How”.

When we are depressed, we are at our lowest. No matter what we do nothing will ever seem good enough and there will no doubt be a lot of negativity in our minds. But depression is associated with negativity quite a lot, it doesn’t get as much credit as it should for some of the positive effects it can have.

Positive effects like what?

Depression can be that trigger to help re-evaluate your life and perhaps set it on a more fulfilling path. Depression can be the cause of a much needed change to define who you will be, a stronger individual. Depression can be the cause of wiping out the impurities within you.

Just like the economy, our mood has its ups and downs. Depression is the what can help us strip away our ego, pride and self-confidence. It can leave us bare to look at what we really are at the moment and leave us to shape ourselves again into what we may want to be. Think of depression like taking a perfectly shaped cube and turning it into a big blob of clay. That clay is then there to be molded into whatever shape you desire next.

So where does the necessity come into all of this?

With depression, we are able to see our impurities, our own negative traits. When we are at our most bare, we have the opportunity and with the correct motivation, the ability to rid ourselves of such impurities. We can allow the seeds of change to grow from there onward then. When we rid ourselves of those impurities, we can reorder ourselves at a higher level than we were at before. This level is what is in essence called change. The necessity is there in order to help us change.

How would we rid ourselves of the impurities?

That is a question better answered based on your own situation. The impurities you find may differ from someone else’s situation due to many different factors taking place. However, the concept remains the same. Depression will always remain as long as emotions remain in us. But at the end of the day, what matters most is how you handle it and that you make the best of the cards you are dealt.

  1. I have a lot of experience with depression, and have come to realize that depression has given me a sensitivity to others that I wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. As you say, it leaves us bare. That creates an enormous ability to feel a collective pain, and to find a way to heal. It is sad that we have to be at our lowest to find the key to change, but with time and strength, we can find our wings. I agree completely with your post! Thank you for sharing!
