Depression is such a demoralizing state of being. It’s a deeply affecting mood disorder
It fundamentally changes how we view who we are, questioning ourselves and our basic character… the depressed brain creates so much negativity that it can be overwhelming
The depressed brain convicts us before anything has even happened
The skills of self compassion, mindfulness, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation will change the way you process your emotion
You can truly feel that your brain is creating this cycle of depressed thinking, not you… knowing it and feeling it are two different things.
Depressing is a relapsing and recurring condition, and you are 50% more likely to fall back into clinical depression once you’ve had it… the earlier in life it happens
You begin to build your life around the depression, limiting your opportunities and what your life can be… like an unwelcome visitor they’re just suddenly in your life
We also know that it becomes more severe each time you have it
Depression becomes so life defining the longer it is in play, we default into merely trying to survive our lives instead of creating our lives. We narrow our opportunities, we don’t take any risks, we live robotic lives in order to just survive what’s happening and feel some measure of safety
