I have been recently thinking and reading on the board here about the negative way people think when depressed. The amy lies that depression will "whisper" to us in moments of profound pain. If one hears them enough, or have been told that by their abusers and give into the darkness, it can really begine to seem like the truth. I used to think my life was worthless (lie), life would never get better (lie), I was a loser and no one liked me (lie), I do not deserve to be happy (lie.) These are just a few examples of the thinking patterns that I had. If only I knew at the time that it WAS NOT true. We CAN CHOOSE how we think and if we will take the easy way out and give in to the darkness, as it is so easy to do. I just want people to not believe these horrible things that we, as depressed people think. Or at the very least question for once that these thoughts are as a result of illness rather than facts.
