Self Help for Depression: Do YOU Walk the Line?

Is your life on the “straight and narrow”?

Do you “walk the line”?

I’m not referring to the Johnny Cash movie, but rather how far off you are from an “ideal” life of happiness. Many people scour the internet in search of self help for depression.

There is a lot of “clinical” self help information on depression, but I haven’t yet seen anyone talk about discuss the 7 Big Issues of Life. So if you’re one of the millions of people who are searching for some form of self help for depression, use this quiz to identify WHAT, in your life is making you feel this way.

From there, you’ll be able to determine what areas of your life you want to improve and search for a solution according to your needs, rather than searching for a general book or course on self help for depression.

What I’m giving you is a way to measure how close you are to being “centered and at peace” with yourself by gauging where you are right now in your relationships, your work and your character.

There are 18 areas to measure and it only takes a couple minutes to do.

You can download the quiz right here…

Print out the quiz and read the directions at the top of the PDF to complete the quiz. On each issue, you’ll need to put a dot indicating where you are on the scale. When you’re finished, you’ll connect the dots and get a “birds eye” view of what is causing you stress in your life.

This quiz will help you get a perspective on which areas of your life could be potentially causing or adding to your depression whether it's your family, self image, friendships, health, money, time and peace of mind. These are the 7 Big Issues of Life and when one of them is "off-center"; your peace of mind will suffer.

The further you are toward the extreme left or right, the more stress you will experience in your daily life. Until you can walk the “straight and narrow” (down the center definitions), there will be a price to pay.

Note: If you're seeking out self help for depression, remember that this quiz is not meant to be a solution, but instead use it as a way to visually "map out" what areas of your life you need to improve.

Who knows, you might even find that life is not so complicated after all.


  • Thanks for the useful tool. I filled it out for where I was several months ago and presently (after diligently working on my self-esteem issues and examining my thoughts and motives). I used to be very far from center in every area (not just to the left or just to the right but definitely not center). Presently I find myself very close to center in all areas. It is demonstrated in my life also. I used to be on anti-depressants, didn't like myself, and didn’t enjoy life. Today I am off meds, am comfortable with who I am, and have a passion that I never felt before. It is possible to transform your life and Mr. Bilotta has some wonderful insights on how to accomplish that transformation.

  • "The spiritualitywas spoken by Lord Krishna to reveal the science of devotion to God which is the essence of all spiritual knowledge. The Supreme Lord Krishnas primary purpose for descending and incarnating is relieve the world of any demoniac and negative, undesirable influences that are opposed to spiritual developement, yet simultaneously it is His incomparable intention to be perpetually within reach of all humanity." - Ramanuja
