Making a difference is a huge significance to most of us. When we make a difference, we define achievements, accomplishment and success.
Making a difference does not always happen, everyday in our lives however.
Thus, it is significant that you learn that sometimes you can make a difference when other times you cannot.
Likewise, you must realize that you are still significant even if you are not making a difference everyday.
You can fight depression by finding importance of your humanity. Ironically, not many people today understand humanity or humane qualities.
Today, humanity is being, replaced with machines, computers, and the misinterpreted belief that we are evolutionary forms from animals. The fact is we were, created and there is more evidence here than in evolution theories.
Humane is caring, which is also drifting from humanity. Humane is gentle, kind, and humanitarian qualities that we possess. Some of the qualities include compassion, kindliness, civil manners, charitable, and so forth.
Humanity is civilization or the human race. The humanity qualities include sympathy, which is also a thing of the past. Other qualities include kindness, mercy, charity, and compassion. Now ask you if you have any of these traits.
Thus, lack of humane and humanity is part of a problem that is causing depression. Thus, how you can make a difference without ceasing is to cultivate humane and humanity qualities that will set you apart from the rest.
You will soon feel good about you once you start developing the qualities. Once you start feeling good you will soon see your depressive symptoms disappear.
Undeveloped individuals exist all over the world, and many fail to see how they can develop their person to become a real individual that makes a difference in life.
Explore Your Beliefs
First, consider starting with exploring your beliefs. Beliefs are ideas, convictions, principals, faith, and can turn into confidence, certainty, trust, and credence. When the mind, distrust self and others it cause suspicions and disbelieve to take over the mind.
The suspicions and disbelieve result in doubts. This is why people are cynical in nature at times. Cynical only endorses pessimistic thinking, sarcastic behaviors, and skeptical reviewing through information.
Now ask, what do you believe? Do you know your own beliefs? Do you have details of your beliefs? Can you find proof to support your beliefs is real?
If you do not understand beliefs, we can consider a superstitious belief, which is common. Superstition first of all, is defective understanding. One of the common beliefs is that if a black cat crosses your path you will endure bad luck, or have a flat tire.
Do you believe this? If so then you have mistaken beliefs, which you need to explore the belief to find logic behind the theories.
Thus, if you believe it strong enough, likely a black cat crossing your path will cause you bad luck, or cause you to have a flat tire. This is, called deceptive illusions backed by coincidence.
On the other hand, if you lack beliefs in this illogical belief, thus likely you will not have troubles when a black cat crosses your path.
Keep working on your beliefs to refine, define, understand, accept, or leave alone. You will notice qualities starting to develop, once you sift through your beliefs.
Each step you take to discover you and how you think; thus is a step closer to showing humanity and humane qualities, which will help you, manage depression.
