What is that but a very contradiction in terms?
Please pardon me if I level much vehemence against the school of thought that pervades the study of depression and mental health. If I have to read any more claptrap jargon, I will surely heave!
I hail from the more practical element of that discipline, and as such, can only offer the following.
1. Exercise of both body & mind are crucial.
2. Avoid advice that is not part of your prism.
3. Study your prism. Note how the refraction changes with the angle of light. Maintain that angle, give it a name. It is yours.
4. Read literature, especially the old stuff. One can find much resonance in the old tales. Don't take it religiously.
5. Build a wall, with whatever it takes. A sanctuary away from the caprice of everyday human evil.
6. Listen to uplifting classical music as much as possible, chamber suites most especially.
7. Maintain the perimetre. Plan ahead tactically, have reserves, and get them out in the field to relieve, and learn from, the grizzled veterans.
8. Above all, Keep on Keepin' On.
Is that really you... the
