Change your mind change your mood
If you’re fighting depression, you probably think a lot.
You think about the reasons you are depressed and you think about what you can do to get over your depression. You may find that you tell yourself the story of your depression over and over because you think it will help you to deal with it better. You think about what other people think of you, and you avoid being around them because you think they will notice there is something “wrong” with you.
If you’re in therapy, there’s a good chance that all of this thinking about depression is encouraged by a well-meaning counselor who asks you to evaluate your feelings and your thoughts about your feelings.
How is this working for you?
The truth is that you can probably help your depression more if you stop thinking about it! In fact, many of the things depression suffers do, as well as the things they avoid, probably contribute more to depression than they help.
For example, if you’re invited out for the evening, you probably don’t go. Perhaps your decision not to go is preceded by thinking of dozens of reasons why you should not go or why it won’t be fun. But what if you could just get up and go and know that you would be able to enjoy yourself?
