23. The Depression Healing Car

You desperately desire your depression to become better so you can move on with your life. One morning, in the fog of depression, you look outside and see a car waiting for you with signage painted on both front doors – The Depression Healing Car.The motor in this car uses three spark plugs, which are lying on the front seat for you to put in. One plug is called “body,” one “soul,” and one “spirit.”

If you only plug in the “body” spark plug, you are in for a rough ride. If you add the “soul” spark plug, the ride becomes smoother. If you finally add the “spirit” plug, The Depression Healing Car runs as it should.

You see, we are beings with three dimensions – body, soul (mind, will, emotions), and spirit – and all three dimensions need to be addressed if we want the most complete healing for depression. It wasn’t until I realized this that I was caught up in the healing process in earnest and have now come out on the other side.

I will address each of these dimensions separately in my next three postings. Stay tuned.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
