1am Thoughts

by Harlot.Rebel

I know that there are so many other horrible diseases that need cures but I really wish they would find one for depression. I’m pretty sure we’ve all had our share of hospital stay, pills and therapist. I’ve also been lucky enough to stumble upon this site 6 years ago and have been able to come back whenever I need to vent anonymous and also even though its sucks that anyone has to go through this, but its a little comforting to not be alone. I wish all of us free of the crushing weight of depression.

depression is still an illness. just because you doesn’t experience chronic pain doesn’t make your experience any less valid c:
remember that your pain is very real, try not to compare it. you deserve to have a cure for your illness just as much as someone with chronic pain.

Your title kind of grabbed my attention. It may the very essence of your problem.

You are NOT your thoughts. Thoughts are just thoughts. You’re not choosing for this stuff to arise. It just does and you identify with it and, boom, you’re upset.

It can be hard to disentangle yourself from identifying with them, and maybe you haven’t heard this before, but if you can roll the idea around for awhile, you will come to see it is so.

Where does that leave you if you stop identifying with it? Right next to your pain. It’s not so much better right away, it’s a small improvement. The next thing to do, once you’ve come to believe you are not your thoughts, is to just let them be there without indulging in them in any way. It’s the indulgence that feeds them. Without it, they will fade away. It can take a lot of time for this to happen, but it is the only true way to uproot this thing that’s compromising you, and the more you practice it, the more effective it becomes and the quicker they will dissolve.
