You’ve been depressed.
You know you are.
You can’t control what happens next.
And you’re not alone.
You’ve read articles, heard stories, seen videos and heard the common advice that it’s okay to be depressed.
And that if you’re struggling, you can just keep on living.
It’s a common sentiment.
But the idea that being depressed means you should just go back to the way things were doesn’t make sense.
It doesn’t work that way.
You’re not going to just go right back to being depressed.
There’s a lot to learn from what we know now about depression and how to manage it.
Here are some things you can do to help yourself feel better: Let go of your fears.
Many people struggle with depression, but they’re often unaware that they’re struggling.
This may be because they don’t have a clear picture of their own mental health.
They may not know they’re depressed and they’re not able to identify what they’re feeling.
It can be difficult for them to see themselves in terms of how they feel, and to understand why they feel the way they do.
It might be hard for them not to see their depression as a threat to their happiness.
When you stop to think about your own feelings, you’ll be able to see that they might not be as threatening as you think.
They might not want to be miserable, and they might actually be happy.
