4. Depression shrinks your life.
When you are depressed your mind plays tricks on you. Your brain will tell you that the answer is spending more time along figuring out your problems. This is the opposite of what you should doing when experiencing depression. Instead of isolating yourself, spending time with friends and family, experiencing their love and support, can help you pull away from depression.
When you are suffering from depression, your brain will tell you that you do not feel like doing any of the things you used to enjoy. Therefore, you do less and less of the things that used to bring you happiness and enjoyment in your life, worsening your depression.
Depression counseling in Birmingham, Alabama with Empower counseling will help you understand what is helpful for depression and what is not, getting you back on the right track toward enjoying life again.
