Article Body:
This article is all about beating depression. I am a person who suffered
from long bouts of depression, however after deciding to change my whole
outlook on life, I now have a much happier, successful and stress-free
life. I will explain how I went about achieving this new life.

As I grew older and especially when I was in my early twenties, I used to
always compare my life with other people I knew, for example my friends.
It seemed to me that my life was so much more of a struggle than what
their's was and that most of these people had so much more going for them
and so much more to look forward to than I did.

I was not happy at the hand of cards I had been dealt and would regularly
be down in the dumps, feeling sorry for myself. I had a number of issues
in my life which had a major impact on my self-confidence and self-
esteem, which would also lead me into depression. This issues including a
weight problem, a stutter, a bald patch on my head and I am quite short
in height compared to the average man.

I was in a regular state of depression and found it very difficult to
pull my self out of it. The stress for example of socialising when you
have a stutter and trying to gain employment would take a lot out of me.
My hair started to turn grey when I was only twenty-one years of age.

I was not content at always being depressed and at the age of twenty-two,
I decided to attempt to change my whole life. I had to have a whole new
approach and a totally different thought process, in a nutshell I needed
to chill out, think in a far more positive way and learn how to de-
stress.

This was not going to be easy however it was essential to do. I started
to read many self-help type books and books about eradicating depression.
I learnt many things such as worrying about a situation makes it even
harder, not easier and that in life all you can do is to try your best,
therefore whatever the outcome you can feel proud that you gave it your
best shot. It is also important to remember that we only live once and
that that life could come to an end tomorrow, therefore we should treat
every day as if it is the last and to enjoy ourselves.

The main change I made was that I started to think and compare my life to
people I was reading about in the newspapers or watching on the
television instead of comparing my life to my friends for example. From
learning about countries in the third world and reading about certain
disasters and terrorist acts, I realised what a fool I had been and that
I was actually one of the lucky ones. If and when I start feeling down or
depressed, I quickly switch on the news and it soon shakes me out of that
temporary depressive state.
