    You can be nice to yourself.
    Nice and fair to yourself.
    Sometimes we must be less than nice to toxic people.
    It's all very tricky.

    Thanks for the info.
    I read the article and took note of the many metaphors he invoked.
    On a daily basis I must be as clever as possible with powerful metaphors.
    My experience reveals depression to be a natural condition/formation/resource.
    I must "anchor" myself outside my deep ,dark,dangerous depression cave.
    I do give myself permission to take temporary shelter inside myself staying real close to the EXIT/ENTRANCE.
    We all have an inexhaustible supply of metaphors.
    There is never a good reason to be lost and trapped within oneself.
    Life is way too short and precious to miss out on some fun.

    This thread reminds me of a true story from years ago.
    An immigrant, not totally familiar with English opened a restaurant and put a sign in the window :
    "We Want to Hospitalize You"

    George, I feel like I know where you're coming from but let me tell you. When I was 11 I was diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease and at age 12 went blind and have been suffering from severe depression ever since with many suicide attempts. I'm far from having any talents and I constantly feel like there is no good in me. But a few years ago I stopped focusing on myself and started focusing on others and I found that we all as human beings do have a purpose, we can do what we can to help others and just get out of ourselves. You want a rewarding life then seek to help others and forget about what's so wrong in your own life because believe me there are many others a lot less fortunate than you and me. I do know how you feel, do take a chance and step out into the world where so many others need you. Be good my friend

    Wow, I'm so sorry to here this.  But everyone, has something that they are good at or ok
    with.  You are probably, overlooking it and not giving yourself much credit for your gift
    or talents.  It just like me I'm good at smiling and listening to other people problems
    and speaking encouraging words to others.  It might not seem like much to some but
    to me it is what I'm good at.  Hang in there my friend and I'm hoping and praying that
    you will soon find yourself.

    When the old isn't enough and you're searching for something new to
    redefine yourself because it just isn't enough to just get bye.   So, it is
    called transitioning yourself into a new person so that you can
    become more than what you used to be.  You just want to be affective
    in everything you do no matter what it costs you.  It's time for a change
    and it begins right now!!  I wish everyone nothing but the best as you
    develop into a beautiful BUTTERFLY.

    Okay I'll add my " too sense".
    All of the above points are very helpful.
    I tend to see depression as a natural condition/formation/resource.
    I compare depression to a metaphorical cave.
    In nature caves are formed by erosion, stress and upheaval.
    (Sound familiar?)
    The ENTRANCE to a cave  is also the EXIT.
    Trying to figure out how a cave was formed DOESN'T change the cave.
    (Endless therapy anyone?)
    A metaphorical cave is a great place to consign useless emotional baggage.
    A cave is a deep, dark, dangerous place.
    Not a place to go too deep or fool around.
    Personally I try to "anchor" myself outside my depression cave.
    The idea is to be clever with powerful metaphors or as I like to call them "Cleverful MEDaphors".
    Food for thought maybe?
    My motto: DESPAIR not/REPAIR a lot.
