Depression is a liar. It tells you that you aren’t smart, you aren’t loved, and you can’t do anything right. Depression tells you that you can’t get out of bed and that things that you used to love to do aren’t fun anymore. Depression is a trickster and it makes you feel like you will never be happy again. Depression says “hey remember that time that something bad happened?” “Well, that’s all you’re worth, bad stuff.” Depression tells you that you don’t have any friends and that if you did, they don’t really like you. Depression tells you that no one else is going through anything like this and it’s only happening because something is wrong with you. Depression is a bully and it’s mean.
And you know what? None of that stuff that depression tells you is true! Depression is a physical illness that impacts a person’s emotions and thoughts. Sometimes it goes away on its own, sometimes it needs to be medicated, and sometimes it needs therapy.
Whatever you do, don’t listen to depression. Depression doesn’t want you to have good things or be your best self.
