QUESTION
“I was adopted, and have felt deep attachment anxiety my whole life. My adoptive parents divorced, and abandoned me for new partners. I looked for my birth parents, and they were both not accepting... rejection.
How can I repair my lifelong depression?”

The fact that you are so strongly affected by this, is your key to conquering it.

You have a superpower here. You understand the pain of loneliness, and the value of family. You understand the importance of commitment, and how it affects your sense of security and well-being.

For you, connection and commitment are deep core values.

These things are so important to you, that you should commit to building your life around them, and helping others with their problems here too.

You can relate better, and understand what others are feeling, better than most of us ever can.

Use that.

  • Offer your friendship to those who struggle.
  • Look after those who have been abandoned.
  • Seek those who are anxious and in hiding.
  • Visit and support orphanages, children’s hospitals, and elderly homes.

Even investing time in helping animals ( mammals, specifically ) will be hugely rewarding- they share these same needs. Volunteering at the SPCA or helping rescue abandoned animals might be your thing.

Here’s the thing- when you practice what matters most deeply to you- it doesn’t just benefit others.

It becomes one of the most enjoyable, meaningful things you will ever do.
