Well, I feel like I am finally over my depression, but I am not sure. I sure as hell don't feel as sad anymore. Before, I felt like people didn't like me and what not, but basically I figured out that I was just paranoid and thought people cared about me that much. I realize I am just another human being living his life. I read THIS ARTICLE yesterday. I mainly looked at the Cognitive Distortions section. I think that may still happen to me. But I don't feel sad. It is more that I feel mad because I feel like I let that stuff get the best of me. I know I feel a lot of those daily and it distorts my perception of my social life and my relationship with my friends. I don't want to let it affect me anymore. So am I depressed still? What is going on with me? Why do I have these distortions?I am so confused.
I don't feel depressed but am I?
Depression causes cognitive distortions, and the cognitive distortions strengthen the depression. If you can get the better of the distortions in your thinking, the depression can lift, and this is a good way to treat mild depression.
Hi Droppydees,To deal with depression, talk with your pals and family to share your problems with them. Engage yourself in any physical activity to lose extra weight and sooth stress. Avoid alcohol, smoking and caffeine and have proper sleep.
