What should I do when all negative thoughts are driving me towards depression? 

Working with metaphors.

We have metaphors about almost everything, metaphors can be extremely helpful or they can be extremely limiting.

Metaphors serve as higher frames about meanings we create about our ideas of life, jobs, people, relations, the world, love, emotions, and so on.

Answer the question:

What’s life like?

What’s the world like?

If you have a limiting metaphor like, “Life’s unfair, you’ll be disappointed more often and would be much happy”   or “Life is a race, you would probably running all the time”

If you have a helpful metaphor about life like “Life is like a adventure park, you would probably can have all the fun even with ups and downs”

A person mentioned his metaphor about how he gets depressed and well, I did my best:

Well, STOP and say to yourself Stop out loud.


Take a U turn and then drive towards better thinking, good feelings, effective actions in the direction of what you want.

You are not your thoughts, You are more.

You can create thougths, might as well create the good ones, the helpful ones.

Drive towards new thinking, new roads, new destinations, new feelings, it’s your powers, own them.

NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. Modelling is at the heart of NLP from which numerous patterns, processes and techniques were discovered and developed ranging from psychotherapy to business, from sports to peak performance and so on. Richard Bandler and John Grinder, the co-founders initially studied the wizards of the change work like Milton H. Erickson, Virginia Satir, Fritz Perls. Through modelling and then uncoding the process of excellence these wizards had, they developed numerous change patterns and techniques which create lasting generative change.
Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as "learning through reflection on doing". Hands-on learning is a form of experiential learning but does not necessarily involve students reflecting on their product. Experiential learning is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. It is related to but not synonymous with other forms of active learning such as action learning, adventure learning, free choice learning, cooperative learning, and service learning.

Ancient Wisdom – Tao

Tao or Dao (/taʊ/, /daʊ/; Chinese: 道; pinyin: About this sound Dào (help·info)) is a Chinese word signifying 'way', 'path', 'route', or sometimes more loosely, 'doctrine' or 'principle'. Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy and religion, the Tao is the intuitive knowing of "life" that cannot be grasped full-heartedly as just a concept but is known nonetheless through actual living experience of one's everyday being. The Tao differs from conventional (Western) ontology in that it is an active and holistic practice of the natural order of Nature and its universal awakening, rather than a static, atomistic one
