I'm an atheist, but I fully understand how BELIEFS—to a much greater degree than anti-depressant drugs—are extremely important to pulling yourself out of depression.
✓Believe that you are an expert
✓Believe you're young
✓Believe it's easy in the "current climate"
✓Believe people are supporting your dream
✓Believe you will succeed
✓Believe you have time
✓Believe you like people
✓Believe it's certain, stable and safe
✓Believe you are inspired
✓Believe you will do it sometime
✓Believe you will beat the competition
✓Believe you know what you are doing
Make these beliefs a part of your nature and you will have the powerful trait of resiliency.
Resilient (adjective): Able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed; able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
