depression

Depression is the flip side of anxiety — they both represent turning feelings of anger or upset internally, on ourselves. And they are both common conditions in modern, developed countries. Clinical depression can be a serious disease that requires treatment by a mental health professional. But occasional depression or situational depression are part of life. When a follower asked Dear Mishu what she does when she’s depressed, her answer was that she stares into space. That it’s okay to be depressed sometimes, and to act depressed when you’re down. Whatever you do, being upset with yourself or angry with yourself that you feel bad or are not happier will not solve your problems. Accepting negative feelings, observing them, acknowledging them, and then trying to let them go, at least for a moment, is a more productive way to approach something that happens to all of us and is a natural part of life.

Dear Alyssa – have you seen me? I look like a combination of a dog, a deer and a fox… I’m all legs and awkward compared to those cute doodles at the dog park… I definitely look different, but then people tell me that they love me for my spirit and my advice and my Cleopatra eyes… Each of us has our own uniqueness and I hope you can find a way to feel great about yourself for what is special about you.
Love: Mishu

I want to cry, but no tears will come. What do I do? Rose asks, Mishu answers

Dear Rose,
Maybe you are afraid of your own feelings or trying too hard to be strong. What if you watch an emotional show or movie and see if that triggers your tears? Sometimes we need some distance from our problems to let our emotions come through.
Love,
Mishu
