Last week did not start well or finish particularly well. I’ve been trying for a long time to get a handle on a lot of things in my life, mainly, my tendency to feel victimized and fall down the negative thinking spiral. I am pretty used to it though so it’s easy to feel comfortable in that space, regardless of how shitty it feels. It never even needs to be one particular thing, I am quite capable of making a mess from nothing. I am trying however to utilize a new tool: acceptance.
This may not jive with everyone, as I think it’s hard enough to understand what depression, let alone trying to accept it. But part of accepting something is that there is acknowledgement and then follow up. Today’s show is a little bit about what that’s like, what my experience has been, and how you can mitigate some of the damage.
