Don'T Give In

This Sparked Me!

I have a tendency toward depression and I am learning to not follow the thought pathway that moves me there. I was eating too much to help fight depression. Now I am trying to walk, meditate everyday and not give in to the thinking of depression. This is a hard time of year for me, but I'm not going there this year, instead I'm working to focus on what is right and everyday count what I am grateful for in my life. emoticon

    Awesome, I wish you the best of luck, it takes a strong person to realize they are depressed and an even stronger person to do something about it. Way to go.

    I have had some bad times myself and can appreciate the suggested changes that you are implementing to deal with depressing thoughts. I also try to 'observe' them so as to control the emotional impact they make on me. I can't stop them but I can try to stay detached. Saying it is easier than doing it but progress is being slowly made.

    You're doing great!! I also struggle with depression and I am also trying different ways to deal with it and the over-eating. Good Luck to you!
