Fighting Founders Depression

It was a beautiful summer day; the sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and here I was, sitting on the back porch, having returned home early from the office. I didn’t have sunshine and rainbows on my mind, far from it — I was devastated about how far I’d fallen. I thought I was a complete failure, worse than worthless, an embarrassment to my family and friends. Surely, when my secret was revealed, everyone would laugh behind my back. My business was running out of money and I had no clue how to save it.

The Secret To Beating Depression Might Be Changing How You Think About Your Thoughts

New research suggests a radically simple way to approach your mind. Everybody ruminates: It’s that familiar pattern of chewing over your thoughts and your feelings about them. For people with depression, it takes a turn toward the pathological: The spiral that comes from feeling bad about feeling bad (about feeling bad!) can be immobilizing. But a new therapeutic approach — called metacognitive therapy (MCT) — targets that process with Zen-like deftness, and it’s been shown to dramatically reduce clinical depression. It’s also useful to anyone who’s felt run over by an uncontrollable train of negative thoughts.

What Depression Actually Is, Because It’s More Than ‘Just Being Sad’

Depression isn’t the saddest person in the room. Quite contrary actually, depression sometimes is the person you would have never expected. Along with trying to convince you they’re happy, they’re trying to convince themselves.

Depression isn’t that melancholy person, you don’t want to be around. Oftentimes, it’s the person everyone loves because of the light they bring to a room is so bright but that’s only because they know darkness.
