7 things your depression does not want you to know.



Depression is not easy. Telling no to depression requires a lot of strength and great courage.  Here are a few simple things that worth to remember the days when you feel depressed. 

7 things your depression does not want you to know.

1. Your self-esteem plays a crucial role.

You might believe that you don’t deserve certain things or, even worse that you don’t have “what it takes” to get them. Low self-esteem creates internal imbalances and conflicts that will slowly affect the course of your life. It is often said that the most dangerous form of depression has its roots within the individual. In these cases there is never any specific cause that triggers the disorder. The problem lies within yourself and probably leads back to your childhood.
Make sure you pay attention to your self-esteem! Make sure that you are the protagonist in your life and not an extra!

2. Your pain won’t last forever.

Depression doesn’t last forever, and neither the pain you feel. If you approach each day with joy, exclude the negative thoughts and follow your dreams, depression will fade and perish in the shadows.

3. Focus on the present.

The past is behind you, it passed, it is no longer here. Allow yourself to live in the present with the utmost tension and happiness that you deserve. This is the only thing worth trying.

4. Always ask for help, but make sure that you ask the right people.

Perhaps you have heard people say, “first you must turn in your family, they will never leave you hanging.” We hope this is true, but keep in mind that there are some people who can do more harm than good. Some people also believe that, if someone is diagnosed with depressive disorder, this is due to the fact that you are a weak person and always sad.

Attention! Seek the help of someone professional and then rest at relatives and friends who really know how to listen to you, to your console and say words at the right time.

5. Your depression doesn’t want to get out of the House.

It is true. Depression loves darkness, silence and fills you with negative thoughts. Don’t be deceived!
Go out and walk for at least half an hour every day. Breathe the fresh air, let the sun touch your skin and talk with people you meet. Surround yourself with life, movement, light and joy-every day.

6. Depression loves junk food.

Sweets, snacks, frozen meals, fast food … all these foods soothe your concern and offer you a temporary pleasure, but in fact they enhance the chemical imbalance of depression, fueling negative neurotransmitters.




Start to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Drink water and tea. A healthy diet helps you feel better and your body will start to eliminate toxins.

7. Say ‘ no ‘ to depression.

Depression is not easy. Telling no to depression requires a lot of strength and great courage, but one thing is certain: you are not the depression. You are a human being who deserves to find happiness again, you will need to see life with enthusiasm and hope.

  1. Thank you for this article. As someone who suffers from severe depressive disorder I can relate to this. I am grateful every morning that I wake up. I am off of anti depressants right now as the last two prescriptions, SNRI & SSRI, just stopped working after about 7 months. I tell myself all the time that I am worthy.
    Again, thank you for this article.

    • Michelle Stanley-Higginson hang-in there! I’ve been depressed for a long time and there are difficult days. Not every episode is the same for me. I’m on some medication now and I talk to someone how I really feel. I stopped asking forgiveness about my changing moods,people has to know we’re struggling. Find help my dear..therapy is an avenue worth trying. I wish you sunny days and if it rains in your world occasionally, find an umbrella of love. You’re not alone.

    • Hi Michelle, from my own experience of depression, what helped with therapy is that we contain the answers. Therapists just know which questions to ask. We all hold our own truths. Keep taking life one day at a time for however long it takes. A hint – look out for the rainbows life gives us when we least expect them. Be kind to yourself…..
