The work of the depressed.
January 13, 2012 § Leave a comment
I’ve been thinking about my last post, about how I would read it if I were down in a pit. If I were down in a pit, I would read it, but not hear it. I would hear, “You are lazy and you are weak. Something is wrong with you. Something is very wrong with you.”
If you are depressed, there is something wrong with you.
But you are not wrong.
So let me simplify.
The work of the depressed is to stay alive. If you are depressed, but you are alive, you are doing well. If you are depressed, you are alive, and you have not hurt yourself or anyone else today, today is a successful day. Keep going.
