Learning How to Use Positive Thoughts to Counteract the Negative Thoughts Caused By Depression
One of the frequent symptoms of depression I’ve dealt with is negative thoughts. Sometimes it would (and sometimes it still does, though not as frequently) take one seemingly small comment or event to propel me back down into the despair of an endless cycle of negative self-talk from which it could take weeks or sometimes even months to fully recover. I got so tired of other people, situations, and depression having that kind of power over me. I decided to ask my therapist for some coping skills and tools that would allow me to be better equipped to fight this battle.
