Huston says that the brain meditate more and become obsessed with the source of the pain and bring back memories and feelings to have clearer look about the subject also according to Hutson one of the main depression indications which is anhedonia when the person stops enjoying any life activity is actually an attempt of the brain to stay focusing on the main issue because life activities will stop the brain analyzing process
This hypothesis could give an explanation of the fact most of depression turns happen after a death or a break up .
The proverbial image about depression is always related to people with mental or psychological issues although this is not true because who did not feel sad before after a failure or personal problem in work or studies ? moreover sadness is considered a light depression , so this theory could be useful to help you get over the problem knowing that your brain is trying to find a solution will mark your situation positively instead of sitting and just be sad at your place you will also think about a solution of that , you will know something is not ok and I need to find a solution and solution you cannot find it in darkness ! In my opinion this is so important due to that concept the patient will be convinced this is a natural phenomena so he will not consider himself abnormal and understand it will not last forever . and his way of thinking will be a part of the solution and not the opposite .
