I've posted this quote recently, but I just wanted to revist a part of it, as it pretty much sums up the approach I'm trying to take, now.
It's just a ride.
And we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings, no money. A choice, right now, between fear and love.
Depression is very difficult for all of us.
But, for me at least and maybe others, half of the battle can be won with no effort at all.
I remember thinking, at my last job, "I don't want to get out of bed, and face another day of this torture." And it's true, no matter what, work was going to be difficult. But refusing to let depression control me, to get out of bed, that was easy.
If only I had realized it then.
Dealing with depression is going to a painful battle no matter what, but chosing
to fight it; that's easy.
It's only a choice.
