Preventing depression that results from unmet goals

If you have already recovered from depression that resulted from unmet goals then its time to learn how to prevent this kind of depression from visiting you again in the future.

The following tips will prevent you from getting depressed because of unmet goals:

  • set clear and reachable goals:after all you cant decide that you will be the most experienced computer engineer in the world within 6 months. What do you mean by the most experienced? Do you mean that you should acquire certain certifications? Define exactly what do you want to reach because leaving your goals undefined might result in preventing you from tracking your achievements and so in getting depressed. In my book The ultimate guide to getting over depression i explained how depression can only be the result of ignoring your problems and throwing them behind your back. If you took actions to solve them your depression will ease the same moment you start. In case your problems are unmet goals then writing a new plan to achieve them will help you get rid of depression
  • Backup plan: if you already have written goals then most probably they will be residing in your subconscious mind and so forgetting about them will be very hard. The best thing you should do in such a case is writing a backup plan along with your plan in order to inform your subconscious mind that failure will only result in moving from plan one to plan two and not in depression
  • Set smaller goals: In case you wanted to achieve something in five years but found that after the five years passed that you achieved nothing then there is a big chance that you will get depressed. The shock that results from suddenly realizing that you missed a goal that you were after for years can certainly lead to depression. In order to prevent this problem from happening divide the 5 year plan to periods of four months each. Each four months evaluate and revise your major goals for the five years according to the performance of this period. This will help you know whether you are moving in the right direction or not.

Depression and unmet goals

Depression usually results from losing hope in getting something that you badly wanted. Once you understand this concept treating depression will become a an understandable process.

Many people waste their time doing things that will never help them deal with their depression then wonder why they don't recover.

Find out what's that important thing you failed to get then do your best to either get it or to get something better than it and your depression will disappear.

Depression and pain killers

Medication, exercising and life style changes are all actions that can help you feel better and ease your depression however the depression problem will never be solved before you deal with the root cause.

These things are great and i advice you to do them but depend on them alone and you will just be wasting your time. Find the root cause and deal with it in order to treat your depression.
