So, I know that having a positive perspective is what is healthy, and the key to alleviating depression - but how? How do you maintain that attitude day after day without getting beaten down? I have read all the books; I have read The Power of Positive Thinking, which has been around for years, and proved so beneficial, and yet I cannot maintain it. I have read Oprah's books, The Secret, and her latest by Eckhard Tolle..........and I know that there must be something to all of this. I just cannot seem to tap into it. So, have any of you had success? And if so how? I get SO depressed - and no matter what I do, I seem inept at shaking it.
