๐Ÿ‘ Depression Is the Ultimate Identity Thief

Liked Depression Is the Ultimate Identity Thief (Psychology Today)

Depression is not something that just disrupts our lives โ€” it can change how we see ourselves as people. Letโ€™s start with experiences and resulting connections that never happen because of our depression. Maybe we donโ€™t have the energy to see a new band when they play a show in our town โ€” so we donโ€™t have what could have been a magical life-altering experience of discovering our favorite band. And our identity also becomes connected with helplessness. We donโ€™t naturally assume we are someone who can โ€œmake things happenโ€ and plan for the future, because we canโ€™t be sure depression wonโ€™t severely undermine our life goals.
