WJKK WJKF. I understand what you're going through. What you should do now is,give yourself to Waheguru. Meaning to say,forget your ego/world/society and focus on God. Go to Gurdwara.Meditate at Gurdwara or maybe before going to bed,listen to keertan/kirtan. Being close to Guru will help you to forget the pain you have. I hope this helped you Ji.

What I would suggest, depending on how severe your depression is. You may be experiencing some signs and symptoms, so the best method is to consult a doctor or counselor who will provide some alternative methods on how to become more in control of your thoughts and feelings. It is very empowering to say to yourself that: You are in control of your thoughts and emotions. That is the first step in conquering depression. Depression doesn't control you.

Next, listen to Gurbani. It is helpful in moving through your situation. In addition, Gurbani is a symbol of gratitude and when you embrace Naam it is as if you are sending positivity everywhere in your house. Guru Nanak Dev Ji said, it is a girls responsibility to learn the importance of Naam and how that will benefit yourself and those around you. Let the words and the sound of the music come inside you and let that transcend you into a more spiritually happier person. Gurbani is a form of inner peace of what your situation and circumstances are - acceptance and then moving on.

Try keeping a journal and make note of the affects Gurbani has had on your spiritual health. Note your thoughts and emotions. Have you noticed any significant impact or change? Are you feeling more happier inside? Are your thoughts positive? Are your emotions changing from negative to positive? This is called emotional dysregulation to emotional regulation once emotions and thoughts are congruent - lined up or in balance. In other words, after listening to Gurbani, are your thoughts matching up with your emotions? Therefore, positive thoughts must equal positive emotions in order to obtain equilibrium in your mind and body. Seeking harmony.

This should be the ultimate goal for listening to Gurbani and this will be the focus of your practice. Keep listening. Keep the practice. Keep the diligence. Naam is yours. Your relationship. No one can interfere in your practice of Naam. Remember this as you begin.

I will offer just some general advice since I do not know the details. It may help to talk to someone- do you have a friend that you could share this with? It is nice sometimes to get things off your chest and be able to share with someone. Take care of yourself- exercise especially has proven important in treatment for depression. Try to find some activity to relax the mind before bedtime like listening to gurbani, reading, etc. Understand the limits of what you can and cannot do. Sometimes we have the ability to help others work things out, we can play a role in resolving conflicts, etc. It is important to understand that we cannot control other people. I would suggest a visit to the doctor as they can suggest local resources like counselling, etc. and may look into some bloodwork as things like thyroid problems can also present as depression. Ultimately, I think internal peace in life comes from following the teachings of Gurbani. That means understanding and living by what the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji teaches us. Read a few pages, or even 1 page a day or even just take a Hukamnama each day and then you will learn a lot and the mind is soothed by listening to Gurbani. Gurbani tells us over and over that Naam is the cure to all our dukh in life. Do simran. The hardships will pass as the mind gets more connected. Anxiety and depression comes from our thoughts. Gurbani teaches us how to stop those to be at peace and meet Waheguru.
