A common feature of depression (and sometimes anxiety) is anhedonia , defined as the absence of pleasure or an inability to enjoy what once gave joy. One may lose the capacity to feel and give love, experience beauty, vitality and happiness. All these qualities Are essential for a meaningful life. Anhedonia is just one aspect of why clinical depression and anxiety are so devastating. I invite you to pause for a moment… and imagine being unable to experience beauty, love, and joy. Perhaps you have even experienced it in real-time?

My collapse into depression marked the only time in my adult life I wasn't inspired to write, and it was writing that had helped guide me through many previous devastating descents into grief. Depression sucked the life out of me in a way I'd Anxiety freaked me out to the point I thought anything I wrote could be misleading or harmful. Support from others was essential to my getting through this dysregulated phase. The importance of community has been embedded into my heart as a result.

If you have passed through inner collapse due to significant anxiety or depression—and especially if you have learned successful self-care for how to get through these states—this may serve you well through outer collapse further along the climate crisis pipeline. Your wisdom can Also help support others who suffer. In this vein, I have assembled a list of psychotherapist-reviewed and vetted depression coping tips (Resource 2: Weber, “Healing”).

The degree to which we experience future collapse—and this is not currently, precisely knowable—could resemble that of apocalyptic movies such as Mad Max or Children of Men . To whatever degree greater cataclysm comes to pass, learning how to persist through dark times when nothing looks bright will help you. Glitz-addicted, happy-crazed, and drug-abusing modern culture prepares us not at all for this darkness descending upon us now. Ironically—and as I've tried to communicate throughout this writing—these death -wishing-in-disguise cultural norms have created and perpetuated our current climate calamity.

One of the best-known accounts of grappling and surviving through atrocious darkness—and therefore its relevance for climate resiliency—is Holocaust survivor and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's book Man's Search for Meaning. I also highly recommend depression survivor and psychologist Andrew Solomon's TED Talk, “ Depression, the Secret We Share. ”Dr. Solomon describesdepression as the “flaw in love” and a “slow way of being dead.”He also alludes to life in A common feature of depression (and sometimes anxiety) is anhedonia , defined as the absence of pleasure or an inability to enjoy what once gave joy.

I also highly recommend depression survivor and psychologist Andrew Solomon's TED Talk, “ Depression, the Secret We Share. ”Dr. Solomon describes   depression as the “flaw in love” and a “slow way of being dead.” 57 He also alludes to life in a concentration camp, as well as global warming. As discussed previously, Greta Thunberg fell into depression upon learning about climate crisis. Her rise to greatness from those depths is a testament to overcoming adversity for us all, not to mention doing so while still a child—deep bows, Greta.  

Anhedonia—characteristic of both depression and to a degree, societal collapse—seems ironic given the Western obsession with worshipping and consuming pleasure and beauty. But when we plot this dynamic along the spectrum of Yin and Yang, it's not surprising. The beauty and pleasure. Our culture worships are largely superficial and non-regenerative, surrogates for more meaningful experiences in the form of fulfillment. When either Yin or Yang is excessive, the other polarity also soon accumulates, unless healing intervenes. As a result of our linear, aggressive pursuit of superficial pleasure and beauty (Yang), we are now experiencing a death (Yin) resulting from an absence of the enduring and soul-affirming versions of these virtues. Underlying this collapse is fear, especially of facing our pain,which is what's required for creating regenerative pleasure and beauty.

While grief is difficult and can be harrowing, depression is a different animal. Grief is a healthy response to loss, which often eventually renews us.58 Severe depression is usually not so fertile or renewing. Depression is widely misunderstood and has many etiologies. Its unique message, if there is one, depends on its causes, and these are not always identifiable. For me, anxiety precipitated my depression and neither held a significant, curative message. Yet, when lifestyle issues or past trauma cause depression and one is able to heal and make changes, the disease can be transformational and even life-saving. Equally, depression can be little more than an imbalanced disease state from which we need to rally and recover by any means possible—just as we would from diabetes, the flu, or a heart condition. Any part of the human body can malfunction or fall ill, and this also applies to our brains. a concentration camp, as well as global warming.
