Signs of Depression Addiction – Depression Treatment Dubai

What are the signs that can indicate an addiction to DEPRESSION misery, unhappiness and complaining –

  1. Struggle to accept you can change things in your life – You think that happiness is outside of your control and that others have good things in their life because they are fortunate. You tend to think that all the bad things that have happened in your life indicates that you are never going to be happy and as lucky as others. That you need to accept your fate and short-comings and are doomed to unhappiness.

  2. You blame everything and everyone else for how you feel – Instead of looking inwards, you tend to blame others for things that happen to you. For example, you always feel like your friends or family don’t include you in events when in reality you either tend to shy away or decline invites – putting yourself in the position of showing no interest in your friend’s or family events, they may lose interest as expect you to decline but you see it as you are the victim in the situation. Where you are not proactive you don’t invite them to things, show interest, suggest that you would love to spend time with them.

  3. Everything becomes a competition about you having the hardest life – When your friends or family members are going through a difficult time, you tend to share how difficult your life is or has been. You like to always share how tough you have it compared to them. You can’t support others because you are in the victim mode and feel like your life is harder than anyone else. I’ve had a few men and women share with me in my breakthrough sessions that their mothers do this, no matter what they are going through they share that they have had it harder or they are currently suffering more. It can be so draining this.

  4. You can’t accept good things happening – Even if there are instances where good things are happening or you are enjoying something, you tend to shut it down quickly and want to focus on the negative things. Or you may say to yourself, something bad is bound to happen now or fear the good thing or times won’t last. If there is nothing negative happening at that moment in time, you sit waiting to spot when the next bad thing will happen.

  5. You take everything personally – Let say someone explains to you their feedback on your work, idea, approach opinion, appearance. You literally only hear the negative and repeat that internally and take offense. You delete the positive. You may think to yourself or say out loud “I should have known this wouldn’t work out” or “I can’t believe they think that badly of me” when neither are accurate thoughts. Even more dramatic than this you think everything is a personal attack on your or about you. A person doesn’t reply to you for a few days you think they don’t like you. A person cancels on you, they don’t respect you. Or a family member says they can’t answer your call you think they are avoiding you or keeping you in the dark. Your romantic partner is on the phone a lot or home late from work, you assume they are not interested in you anymore. You take everything personally and feel like it is an attack on you or that they don’t like you.

Thank you for destroying my relationship. My partner reached out for support and you advised him that there is nothing for him to heal and that he should send his girlfriend for therapy, like this is your place to tell him. I’ve been through therapy myself and I know how to make the difference between a good therapist and someone who just wants to get more money, and the second seems to definitely be your purpose!

Nicola’s support and advice proved invaluable when my marriage was struggling. Over a series of meetings (online and fact to face, to suit our needs), Nicola helped steer us through a very difficult time. She was always calm, neutral and never made us feel like we had failed or had ‘messed up’. Nicola has a wealth of experience and keeps up with current research, but has a very unique approach to getting you back on track. With regular support materials and just being there, she helped us realise that our relationship could go on; by making us look at ourselves and helping us consider the tools we needed to move forwards. I can honestly say that I don’t think our marriage would have survived such a difficult time without Nicola’s expertise. I often listen to Nicola’s podcasts on Spotify when I’m needing a bit of extra support. Thank you, Nicola

Nicola has been a massive help. I had tried traditional counseling and it had seemed to be moving me further away from what I wanted. After listening to several of Nicola's podcasts I decided to reach out to her. The discovery call was enlightening and she described a process that was more focused on creating a better future vs reliving the pass. From there I went through her Breakthrough Program...All I can say is Wow! Her program and guidance has quickly changed my mindset which has in turn improved all my relationships and overall stress level. I highly recommend working with Nicola and can't thank her enough for her help and care.

My partner and I spent a number of sessions with Nicola discussing our relationship difficulties, both together and one on one sessions. She has been so good to talk to - incredibly helpful and understanding with our problems.My partner and I have come out of this with a better understanding and move love for each other. Nicola has taught us many techniques to use in situations were we feel at odds which has been fantastic. We would recommend Nicola 100% for relationship advice.Thank you so much again.

Nicola's marriage counselling have been life changing for both my partner and I. The learnings have been exponential and have transform us individually and as a couple. We reached out to Nicola at the lowest point of our relationship and about to break apart. Her compassionate and smart yet practical advice and exercises transform us in such a way that we are now at the best we've ever been personally and as a couple.As a result we've decided to get married and book Nicola every year for a couple's check in! I couldn't recommend her sessions more to anyone feeling stuck and wanting to be in a better place. Best investment of time, money and effort EVER. Thank you Nicola, you are an inspiration to me and many others :)
