First, be patient because anxiety and depression are rooted in a person's outlook on who they are and how they handle situations and relationships.

Changing these deep major structures in your life takes time to try new ways and see what develops, then fine tune accordingly.

Most commonly, anxiety and depression relate to one's self definition.

Reflect on your own opinion of yourself and whether you'd like making any adjustments to this.   Then figure out what stops or inhibits you from doing this.

Try new ways of thinking and interacting with other people.  The changed impression you make on others will influence your own view of who you are.

In America people take Pharma pills to not feel badly.

If you prefer to make natural, long-lasting change then reflect, read, try therapy if it feels right to you.

Eventually you will be better off this way than to take drugs to hide how you truly feel.
