Holidays are a time of stress and depression for many –
Ramtha on understanding the nature of depression

Holiday stress

– “Strategies to Address and Reduce Holiday-Related Stress and Grief”
“For many, November and December are a favorite time of year, with major holidays bringing family and friends together. But it can also be an incredibly stressful time, as party planning, extra cooking and shopping, not to mention navigating potentially difficult family dynamics, might stretch you to your limits.

Also, since Thanksgiving and Christmas often stands for family togetherness more so than other holidays, it is the time of year when you may become acutely aware of any such voids in your life, magnifying feelings of grief, isolation, loneliness or loss.

Those who have recently lost a loved one may feel their grief particularly intensely during the holidays. Financial woes, health issues, or having unrealistic expectations of making your holiday “perfect” can also tip the scales from a time of joy to a time of misery,” quoting Dr. Mercola.

– “Depression…The lack of personal expression.”
“In your normal life, anger was raised in you rarely, but a seething depression always existed. Anger was controlled by being politically correct and socially acceptable. You know how I know that and how I know you should know that is because you are not happy with yourself. You have this critic in your mind that no matter what you do, it is not good enough.
Depression is also knowing that no one outside of us has the answer. No human being has the answer to our problems because everyone is looking after themselves and the bottom line and their reflection in society. And what is depression? The lack of personal expression. How do we cope with that and how have you coped with that? With religion and laws and morality.”

– “Allow yourself the depression”
I have had such days, entity, but I tell you this: Allow yourself the depression. When you have had enough you will surface out of it, you will become wiser for it, and each time you go into your oppression again it will not be so devastating as it used to be. To avoid depression is the worst thing you can do. Allow yourself to frolic in it so that you know what it is and then come out of it. That makes you strong. That also gives you wisdom to understand. In depression, all of the frivolousness is removed and the blatant realities of feeling are left there to look at. And in that understanding, entity, one begins to know himself a great deal better.
