I suffered from depression for years. I'm over it now but looking back i can see some of the factors that contributed to it. The worst of them was doing what everyone else expected of me. Don't get me wrong. I don't mean by by this that i now do what i like. I now do what i believe is good for my health. Stress is a MAJOR factor. It is pigeon holed by many as a kind-of throw away word but don't underestimate how damaging it is. For example... If you are in a job you hate, if you are chasing money, success, or just chasing the wind then take stock of your life and, please, DE-STRESS. I cannot emphasise it more but stress is far more damaging than most people realise.

The human mind is just like any other part of the body. If you constantly battered yourself physically people would urge you, or perhaps even force you, to stop. Why then "batter" your mind?

Just my tu'pence worth.

So very true and so very hard to realise when you are doing it to yourself - until you break Sad
