The causes of depression can be quite complicated, but I believe I can at least offer a potential solution to how to cure depression and overcome it. Of course I used to suffer from heavy depression, anxiety, and stress, so the solution is partially based on my personal experience. Rather than boring you with my whole life story, I share my brief story with gaming and depression to attempt to convey mutual understanding of the pain before anything else. This is not a light topic to put out a video on, so I decided that understanding was the best place to start with a video like this. Overcoming depression, anxiety, and stress is not easy because we get so wrapped up in our thoughts. We identify with our thinking and minds, and that is where I think the solution lies. ~~~ Subscribe for more: https://goo.gl/6sb31h ~~~ My book: https://amzn.to/2VkMEjE (affiliate) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/fluent_japanese_from_anime Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fjfaam Twitter: https://twitter.com/fjfaam Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/fjfaam ~~~ Other videos you might like: How to Break Bad Habits | Strengthen Willpower | Regain Self-Control NOW: https://bit.ly/2KWHMMk Corey Bunnell Works at Nintendo - Nerd Motivational Success Story: https://bit.ly/2IYt7hw Best Audiobooks - 3 Books That Changed My Life: https://bit.ly/2IYF0Eb No More Waiting (Motivational): https://bit.ly/2KEelm9 How to Focus and Study - Develop Superhuman Focus to Learn Anything: https://bit.ly/2lZafpU YouTube Addiction and Anime Addiction: https://bit.ly/2u9IkqS ~~~ Music: "Floating Cities" "Digital Lemonade" "Level Up" "Angel Share" "Five Armies" All songs by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

Comments from Youtube

Fluent Japanese From Anime : Looking back at this video a week or so after its release, I realized that I probably shouldn't have ended with meditation. That's not the main takeaway of the book nor this video. It's more like "depression is a disease of inward thinking so that's why we should distant ourselves from our thoughts". Meditation is just one way to do that.

SOKO MAN : Turning off YouTube is hard!

Matt VS Japan : I strongly believe in the message of this video, really glad to see you spreading it! btw are you a fan of Leo as well??

Alex Silva : what a great video !

Ryan T.A : I really didn't think it at first, but I watched this video and _never regretted_ the 6 minutes that it costed me!

DeluxeTux5249 : First one here... I'VE DONE THE IMPOSSIBLE!!!

Janka Lukáčová : Honestly you literally turned it off for me... I thank you

ユゆうや : nice video bro don't u know u seem have same voice of ghost adventure leader? incredible

Rene Reifen : Actually with the videogames Im at the same point right now. They satisfy me for some hours but then its boring and I feel like i have wasted time. I remember when i played days without sleep the same video game like DayZ even tho it was a pure grind most of the time, the world enviorment made me happy. Im studying now too and still aiming for the game programmer job. I had a apprenticeship for computer science and programming and can say that creating a game is fun. Especially when people play it and are happy. You have created a world and people actually enjoy this world, they enjoy your thoughts.

Ali Can Sariaslan : "You're not your mind, you're a watcher."

Israel Akoda : The editing in this video is top notch, the work you've been putting in is really showing!

noboby rr : Please upload more videos you can’t stop now at when I got addicted to watching your videos 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🤜🏻👍👍👍👍👍👍

ninkaii : omg I love this channel. I'm gonna go be productive now but I will watch all your videos at some point!

richycline : I can definitely relate. I have a very over active mind and since my trip to Japan this summer I've been going down hill mentally. I spent a month there and it was actually a pretty stressful trip, I ended up getting an ulcer (not fun). I am a compulsive thinker/worrier and it's not good. I have always liked it because i feel it gives me a lot of insight into the world but in recent months it has turned against me. I can relate a lot to your experiences in growing up a gamer. I used my Audible credit for this month on this book. I'm taking two weeks of vacation to take my dog camping (starting next month). The purpose of the trip is to live healthy (without societies distractions) and sort out my mind. Thanks for the suggestion.

TofuDream : I'm going to be a psychologist so I hope to help people who suffer like this.

stephanieflow7777 : Thank you!

TofuDream : I'm going to be 100k in debt hahahahah ^^;

BlackJoe23 : i had this realization a while ago. I think theres some buddhist saying that you are everything. Well you are the things you are seeing in front of you simply because it is your subjective experience of the world which is you.

MobileMally : Thanks for this video. When I was in my self-help reading phrase, this was one of the books I picked up and didn't get through. I'll put the time into getting through it thanks to this video~ Appreciate the time you put into this video and I hope you're well~

アルフィー : "the sudden epifany destroyed all the negative thoughts, and his false-self for good".

Delheart : Quality content

playful astronaut : Wow! Mind blown!
