In this book, I have described effective ways that I had come up with to get out of depression. I tested them on myself for several years by trial and error. I had to discover a whole new world of dealing with emotions, which was often at odds with what Western civilization has been telling us. I discovered that there is no point in suppressing emotions with alcohol or sweets, running away to work or toxic relationships. You need to recognize emotions, find the thoughts being their source, and then change them. This is the only way to permanently heal your life and free yourself from depression.
