Ocean

Therapy for Depression

Life always has its ups and downs, but for some reason, you can’t seem to get out of this rut. 

Perhaps it’s a relatively new sensation, a stark contrast from the motivation or energy you once felt. Or perhaps this flatness in life has persisted for some time, the struggle to find motivation and purpose is a feeling that is both stifling and familiar.

Not only is your motivation stifled, but your relationship with yourself and the world around you have also changed. 

You feel disconnected from your family, your friends, your co-workers. Isolation and withdrawal from others feel so easy, a path of least resistance compared to the effort and risk of maintaining these connections. 

As a result, things can feel very lonely. Your inner critic becomes your best friend, your strongest connection.

 

“I’m not good enough,” 

“I’ll never succeed,” 

“It will never get better,” 

sound like a reverberating echo.

Perhaps your echoes are even more severe, adding in a sense of helplessness, hopelessness, and despair. At the center of these depressive experiences is, well, you, and your inner critic works tirelessly to convince you these thoughts are true. 

But they aren’t true, despite how strongly these impressions might feel. 

Life always has its ups and downs, but you can feel hopeful and happy again. You can be more excited to start your day and reinvigorate your motivation, and strengthen your relationship with yourself and others.
