Depression and Negative Thoughts
Depression can be debilitating. Sometimes life’s difficulties weigh us down. You or someone you know may feel sad, depressed, empty, or hopeless. They might be on the edge of tearfulness or overly irritable. They may also experience a loss of interest or pleasure in people or activities.
However, whether a person feels somewhat sad or has all of the symptoms of depression, he or she doesn’t have to stay in that place.
The following are symptoms of depression:
- Feelings of hopelessness or helplessness
- Loss of interest or pleasure in things you normally enjoy
- Appetite and weight changes
- Sleeping problems or changes
- Feeling agitated or slowed down
- Decreased energy
- Sleeping problems
- Feeling worthless or guilty
- Thinking problems
- Suicidal thoughts or thoughts about death
- Physical aches and pains
Depression is a lonely, difficult place to be. Whether you have the “blues” or a deep depression, I can help you look at your negative thinking that keeps you frozen in that sadness. I can help you move forward and out of that stuck place.
