Positive Thinking - We are not aware of the way in which we think. Two people can experience identical traumas, yet one person can overcome theirs relatively quickly whereas another may develop the symptoms of depression. Stop, and have a deep look within yourself, the way you think.

Attend Support Group Meetings - Support goes hand-in-hand with gathering good information. Join a depression support group. There are also numerous online communities and forums available if you cannot find a depression support group in your area or if you cannot express your true feelings in person.
Practice forgiveness - of yourself and others. We are all human and we all make mistakes. Don't carry yours or anyone else's mistakes.
