Depression can feel like a heavy curtain around us. It can keep us from the life we want, make it seem impossible to feel real joy or excitement, and prevent us from feeling really understood. Depression is a result of innocent thinking that weighs a person down. Often a person's thoughts about how they wish they could change or be different become a person's biggest burden. When we start to notice our thinking we see how it affects our feeling and how it is always changing and not always accurate. We can begin to lighten our mental load and give ourselves a break. With that crack in our thinking our natural connection to life, to love, and to simple pleasures can return.
