'You're as happy as you let yourself be and you're as depressed as you believe you are.'
These words infuriate me to no end. Do not EVER say “you are as depressed as you believe you are” depression is NOT about believing you are depressed. Depression is hell, depression is a chemical imbalance in your brain, depression makes you feel like you are drowning. I have struggled with depression for years but, jeez, thanks I NEVER thought that believing I’m not depressed will make me better! Wow! You should go talk to my psychiatrist who has been trying to help me improve for a year since I landed in hospital.
