Clearly, a short article like this can never cover every aspect of depression. My intention is to provide you with insights that can give you footholds out of the pit. If you would like any further information or help please write in via the contact page.
Most of us are a combination of extrovert and introvert. There are two main introvert types: the Phlegmatic and the Melancholic. It is the Melancholic that is most prone to depression so we will take a few moments to understand this particular temperament, to find out why it is subject to depression and what we can do about it.
The Melancholic is a wonderfully rich temperament: rich in talent, creativity and sensitivity. It is also incredibly negative: sometimes about others, often about life and especially negative about themselves. And this negative approach to themselves shows itself most particularly in their struggle for self-worth.
