I keep thinking that I may be suffering from the grief of the loss of the person I should have been had depression not taken hold so early in my life. I was 7 when depression started to take hold of me. Prior to that I was a happy child and I really wonder if the loss of that happy child I once was feeds my depression, a grief for the loss of self.
This is exactly what I feel
It could very well be.I never thought of it that way. It makes sense though.
It could very well be. All I know it is very painful. Lets hope we will be a better person when we come out at the other end.
In many ways yes.......if you allow it to. But allowing it not to happen is the hard part. Its like an ever ending circle and the key is finding the right place to step off, and to stop those thoughts from taking over your life. I'm trying to practice meditation to find my inner calm. Maybe you could give it a go when you feel those feelings coming on strong...... I try everything in the hope that something will work for me......this seems to be helping....meditation xxx keep strong my friend......a big hug coming your way x
