I’m saving this.

What rituals do you rely on to pull you back from the depths?

  1. While I generally do not suffer any longer from such debilitating thoughts, my son still does. I printed this for him and pinned it to his bedroom door. Maybe it will be helpful for him while he is feeling so overwhelmed.

  2. I don’t believe I suffer from depression (so my thoughts may / may not be helpful), but I have been working on recognizing when I can’t trust my feelings. Probably about half the time I can recognize when I’m feeling that way, and I am able to just set my feelings aside and let my logical brain take over.

    • You bring up a great point. In fact, learning to logically counter ANTs — Automatic Negative Thoughts, is a big concept in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. That’s wonderful that you can see when your feelings/thoughts are faulty and counter with logic. Thanks for reading and taking the time to offer your perspective. 🙂
