The L.I.V.E. Method for Depression
Depression is a psychological condition that affects how a person thinks and feels. It also affects social behavior and the sense of well-being on physical and emotional levels. Clinically diagnosed depression requires that a person have certain symptoms that are interfering in his or her life, such as prolonged sadness that causes difficulties participating in life. It has been my experience that people have begun the path to depression long before they are clinically diagnosed with depression. Sometimes they are never diagnosed with depression because they are able to “pull themselves together” often enough to keep their lives from falling apart. Many people are also fearful of the social stigma of having a “mental disorder.” In many families it simply isn’t acceptable to appear to be imperfect or to be in need of assistance dealing with life’s trials.
Many people who have depression fail to recognize it, or are not properly diagnosed because of the process called habituation. Habituation causes people to become accustomed to feelings of sadness, and this feeling then becomes a “normal” way of life for them. Because often everyone around them can also be sad or even depressed, they can fail to realize what a deep hole of unhappiness they are in. This is where the help of a L.I.V.E. Method practitioner is invaluable in locating the issues that might be preventing them from living a full and joyful life.
The L.I.V.E. (Love is Victorious Everywhere) Method is a powerful tool in the management of depression. The technique has been used in hundreds and thousands of patients to find the root causes of the sadness and to help relieve it, through a completely painless, non-drug option to managing sadness and depression.
