Depression comes in many shapes and sizes and for a variety of reasons. If you suppress your feelings without resolving them, you become vulnerable to a lifestyle of depression.
No matter what the conflict, the common and destructive denominator is that many remain unresolved. When we feel ashamed, guilty, depressed, anxious, or angry, it’s a sure sign that one or more of these conflicts remain unresolved. “Just Suck It Up And Go On!” can be the worst advice. At Life Strategies we firmly believe that there are answers to life’s problems. But, you can’t even look for them if you “just suck it up and go on.”
