Therapy For Depression

  • “I don’t feel like myself anymore.”
  • “I just can’t get up off the couch.”
  • “I’m so ashamed; I feel like I should be able to handle this.”
  • “Everyone tells me I should love myself, or just stop thinking about it, and I have no idea how.”
  • “I feel like a burden to my loved ones.”
  • “I’m not interested in things I used to enjoy.”
  • “I’m so tired all the time.”
  • “Putting on a brave face is exhausting.”

It’s not just you. Depression loves to tell you stories like this, so we hear them often in therapy at Satya.

When your mind gets stuck on worry, self-criticism, self-hatred, or an intolerable future, it’s hard to imagine having a satisfying life. It’s also very easy to blame yourself or assume something is wrong with you.

Our culture is great at showing people how to acquire stuff, but not how to deal with fear or other difficult emotions. If “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” were actually that easy, wouldn’t you just do it?

To make matters worse, when self-help gurus and clickbait articles urge you to choose joy, visualize your dreams, think positive, like yourself, and let go of negative thinking, you’ll probably end up feeling like a failure — which will just make you more depressed!
