AN EPIDEMIC OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS
Newspapers report that
there is an epidemic of depression sweeping around the world.
They say that at least one in ten people is depressed.
I don't know if the epidemic of depression is real, but I do
know that there is an epidemic of antidepressants sweeping
around the world. Millions of people are popping pills to beat
their blues, even though they may not be clinically depressed.
They believe that if they change the chemistry of their brain
with a pill, it will send their blues packing.
People who are clinically depressed and who are suicidal clearly
need to be taking medication. But people with milder mood
disorders might try other approaches to therapy. If they do a
better job of controlling what gets into their mind, they just
might get better without those expensive pills.
What you think about matters. Negative and limiting thoughts
create a chemical imbalance in your brain and make you feel
bad. Positive and unlimited thoughts restore the normal
chemical balance, and you feel good once again.
What you think about determines the chemistry of your brain.
When you think anxious thoughts, you create the chemistry of
anxiety, and you become anxious. When you think depressing
thoughts, you create the chemistry of depression, and you become
You are responsible for the chemistry of your brain. When you
choose your thoughts, you choose your chemistry. When you
change your thoughts, you change your chemistry. You are not
the victim of your chemistry; you are its creator. If you donít
like your brain chemistry, you can change it by changing what
you put into your mind.
Don't walk the path of self-destruction by filling your mind
with negative things. Instead, put positive thoughts into your
mind and create a chemistry that lifts you up and supports you
on the journey to your dreams.
