Someone once shared with me some piece of advice which I’ll try to explain somehow.
During times of depression the mind is somehow affected and dented to a certain degree that the thought of all hope is gone. And when this happens many people tend to do things they will later regret in the future in the somewhat ‘little while’ experience of the depravity of hope.
The present moment might bring a relative truth that everything is going wrong. So, the natural thing to do when all hope is gone is to simply do things that might lean towards an attitude of ‘anything goes’ because there is not a care in the world.
But what if along the way we might come out of the period of ‘everything going wrong’ to a new chapter that starts to become promising? And decisions that were done in the manner of ‘anything goes because there is not a care in the world’ would somehow come to haunt us in the future when everything is going well already.
It just makes me wonder because I’m going through this kind of experience. I sort of gave up on hope for a while and started to ‘plunge myself to substance that I’m prone to be addicted to’. Sometimes I do have fears how this decision would affect the future when everything is going alright.
I do hope that we would think carefully of whatever decisions we make especially during times of being depressed. Or they might affect something in the future.
