Depression background

Let me share with you some depression background that will help you set the context of this blog on 6 steps to overcome depression on your own. Depression is not a new or modern era issue. Depression was experienced by millions in every era.

If you look into Ramayan or Mahabharat you will find cases of depression. If you look into pre-independence India you will find depression cases. So my friend, depression is an age-old issue.

In future also if people will entertain negative thoughts and emotions they will experience depression. Those who are unable to handle their negative thoughts and emotions get depressed easily.

That is one of the reasons today the entire world is talking about taking care of your mental health. There are mental health awareness camps going on and so many events available online too.

But my friend, your mental health, physical health and emotional health is your responsibility. Do not put this responsibility on anyone including your parents, school, teacher, college, professor or government. Yes they all can become helpful to improve your health but the core responsibility is yours.

This is one thing which I wanted to emphasise in this blog on how to overcome depression on your own. See the term “on your own”. You are responsible for your health. If you have entered into depression it means somewhere you got distracted from your own responsibility for your mental health.

We will surely learn how to overcome depression but before that I want you to accept this as your responsibility. Your health, your responsibility. I will be here to support you, guide you, counsel you but your mental health is your responsibility.

Now let us explore more.

Depression can be cured

Are you familiar with this question: Can depression be cured? I am sure you are. While looking at some monthly search on this question I discovered that thousands of people are asking this question.

Now let me tell you clearly my friend, if you are willing to overcome depression then yes depression can be cured. It requires your willingness and sincere action. If you are in a wishing mode it will be difficult for you to come out of depression even if you are on antidepressants.

In fact your antidepressants will become your lifetime partner. So before such things happen, gather your willpower and tell yourself, “I am willing to overcome depression and I will take necessary action sincerely to come out of depression at any cost.”

Depression can be cured with the implementation of your sincere effort and day to day engagement. Let me share a list of things that stops you from coming out of depression:

  • Constantly changing doctors

  • No faith in yourself and the treatment

  • Not willing to come out of depression

  • Insincere efforts to overcome depression

  • Prioritising negative thoughts and emotions

  • Not ready to change negative habits

  • Non-stop nagging and blaming

When you will stop doing all these things mentioned in the above list I assure you that you will come out of depression. Remember my friend, depression is not a disease like diabetes or cancer. It is a mental condition. This condition can be rectified if you are really willing and ready.

Therefore, this is the right time for you to take a firm decision and start your journey to overcome depression. If you think that by being in depression you will gain sympathy and love from others then this is your mistake.

No one wants to be around anyone who is depressed. Ask yourself do you want to be around a person who is constantly depressed? So if you have this thought in your mind that depression cannot be cured then it is you only who is making it true.

Depression can be cured when you are ready to cure it.

Are you doing any 1 or more of the following?

  • 0%Constantly changing doctors

  • 0%No faith in yourself and the treatment

  • 0%Not willing to come out of depression

  • 0%Insincere efforts to overcome depression

You can vote for more than one answer.

Why depression test

This is another important aspect you must know before we start learning the 6 steps to overcome depression on your own. You might have done all your google search finding about what depression is, signs and symptoms of depression, how to treat depression etc.

My friend, reading various articles may help you to get some information about depression, what, why and how but you cannot conclude after reading things here and there that you are in depression.

It is not necessary that you are in depression but due to over-reading or overthinking you might feel that you have symptoms of depression. If you have concluded just by reading stuff that you are in depression then it is my gentle request do not come to such a conclusion.

There is overwhelming information on the internet hence coming to such a conclusion will not help you at all. I strongly recommend that you must take a depression test before coming to such a conclusion.

Free depression test

I will suggest that you conduct your basic depression test via taking this free online depression test. It will take around 3 to 5 minutes for you to finish this test. You will get two types of results - depression or no depression.

Paid depression test

Once you figure out whether you have depression or not I will suggest you take this paid online depression test. With this test you will come to know what type of depression you have:

  • Mild depression

  • Moderate depression

  • Severe depression

It is necessary my friend that you take this test because relying on internet search is not advisable at all when it comes to depression.

Your life is precious and it is a gift. Live the life that you have always dreamt of. Don’t stake your life by getting influenced by some information on depression via the internet or from anyone who is not the subject expert.

1000s of people are ready to give you free advice. But do not get trapped into this advice until you know that the person who is giving you advice is a subject expert and has treated depression patients.

I have been practising integral psychotherapy for 25+ years and I have treated 1000s of patients who were in depression. I have observed them coming out of depression and living a wonderful life again.

Therefore, it is important for you to take a depression test first.

Step 6: Continuing Self-Care Practices

However, ideally make these practices a permanent part of your life moving forward to maintain your improved mental wellbeing.


Depression can be effectively treated through a holistic and self-help approach. By implementing the above 6 steps that focus on goal-setting, routine, lifestyle changes, mindfulness, creativity, and support from loved ones, individuals can find relief and long-term solutions to their depression.
