For all those who are not familiar with a Dementor, In the wizarding world of Harry Potter there is a wizard prison of Azkaban which is guarded by creatures called dementors. Dementors are dark creatures which suck every good feeling and every happy memory out of anyone who comes near them and leave them feeling cold, dark and miserable.
In wizarding world way to fight such dementors is to think about some memory which makes you happy and then cast a Patronus with the spell “Expecto Patronum”. Happier the memory stronger the spell works.
Like the wizarding world in our real world also there are dementors all around us, not black cloaked ones but in form of people who drain up your energy any time you interact with them. You may encounter them in form of your neighbour or co-worker or sometimes even a small negative voice in your own mind. Like dementors in wizarding world they will show you the negative side of any situation and bring back your bad memories and make you more and more gloomier, the more and more you listen to them.How to fight these dementors??
Same as in wizarding world, in real life also to fight these dementors you need to build your mental strength by remembering things which make you feel good,bring back your happy memories so that your inner light , your happiness, your own patronus radiates so strong that any negativity, any crap that dementors throw on you has no effect on you.
So next time you come across dementors in any form and you start to feeling low, train your mind to bring positive thoughts to fight off the gloom and depression.
Lastly remember what Dumbledore said
“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
Also same as in Harry Potter do not forget to eat a yummy little chocolate to lift your mood 😊😊😊
