Which Road Do I Take?
Saiph replied to Daisy39's topic in DEPRESSION CENTRALRoad 1 is half perfect. A life of being happy is a beautiful thing to aim for, i'm right with you there. But i'm not so sure about trying to get things back to how they used to be. I tried this for a while when i first got depressed, and it only caused me frustration. I completely understand the logic. 'Well I was happy before so i'll just be like that again'. It makes perfect sense, which makes it so heartbreaking when you realise that it isn't working. I believe that a lot of pain and misery can be avoided by accepting yourself, the way you find yourself today, and think 'ok, this is how it is, lets see what i can make of this.' Don't go backwards. Admit your difficulties and grow from there. :-)
