I normally despise this sort of list/article, but I've made an exception for this one. Thoughtfully written.

Agreed...that was the one that struck me. "Depression will lie to you."

It can destroy your self-esteem, your relationships and make you believe the world is better off without you.

When you are depressed, everything is so dark. It's hard to believe you will ever see the light again.

Don't let the lies, become your truth.

What is true today... How do you distinguish between right and wrong when it comes to your mind... If i had to listen to my mind everytime and do as it says, things would be very different now. But if i dont listen to my mind, what or who do i listen to?

Soooo... What is the *Truth*?

Please do not get me wrong, i am not trying to bust anyone's balls here, i am just stating my mind set.

I began to ask myself, “What is reasonable? What is rational? What is logical about my thoughts”?

I wrote my thoughts down and re-read them. This often helped in seeing how irrational they had become (largely based on fear).

Given time, or over time I now find less purpose for it, and I basically live by 3 things I value. I say to myself, “What is kind? What is forgiving, and which helps me to be resilient?” For this, I don’t listen so much with my mind, as I do with my heart.

I wanted to write that the truth becomes less consequential. Because even if we can’t control our environment or what other people do to us (or how we think about ourselves), we still have control over ourselves and our own actions, but that just brings me back to your question, “ how do you distinguish between right or wrong in your mind ?”

I think this is why started trying to live by (and choose) what I value.
