For many years we’ve believed and been told from doctors and the manipulative marketing companies that depression is a chemical imbalance of the serotonin levels in the brain. But this is only true for a small percentage of people with a set of genes. Thirty-seven percent of people will inherit these genes and they only become activated by their environment, circumstance, a stressful event or childhood drama. Depression is a universal sense of feeling vulnerable. We can feel disempowered and lose our sense of self and life purpose. That feeling of not being good enough, that nobody needs us, and being cut off from something that we need, but also have lost along the way.

Why is depression so widespread

We form a sense of identity from baby to adolescent and young adult, from the people who influence us in our early development. These include parents, primary care givers, religion, education, cultural demands and falling foul of advertising and clever marketing. This creates a split of our selves, our instincts, impulses and urges. We become diminished and become socialised to live and conform in society. We act accordingly to values, principles, beliefs which go against our true authentic nature and what’s important to us. By choosing to live and behave according to our relationship attachments with those we love, instead of being true to ourselves, we create confusion and conflict, with our emotional and psychological needs.
