When your put into a worry well of depression and anxiety its hard to get out, you doubt yourself so you give in. We sometimes wish we know what made us happy but where so confused that we dont know where to start. you need to do some soul searching to keep your mind occupied. theres so many great things about life that if your stuck in a worry well then you may miss it. force your self to get out there and try new things. time doesnt stop for you to recover so focus on other things while trying to put depression in the background. remember its all a state of mind which your stuck because you constantly believe its taken hold of you.
Kandr, are you anxious? If you are I think that we become anxious because as children we grew up in an insecure environment where we didn't feel safe and therefore, felt anxious. Once we have spent a few years in this environment developing like this it becomes a part of our personality until we fix it as adults. The way that I fixed it was to realize that when I was anxious that these feelings were just a triggered habit from the past. I would focus on my present and tell myself that that was then but this is now and I do not have any reason to be anxious now. Contributing factors for me were weak boundaries, because I couldn't stand up for myself, low self-esteem, because I certainly didn't want anyone to expose me, and finally, anxiety from others triggering my uncomfortable feelings. For this I worked on these feelings so that I was no longer uncomfortable with them.
