I once called the stubbornness in depression, the arrogance of depression. I still do.

What people misunderstand is that I’m not saying depressed people are arrogant. Far from it. But depression only allows certain truths to hold true – negative ones, and the more negative, the truer they are. The sufferer isn’t able to see beyond that – sometimes, even when it’s spelt out clearly.

Depression is arrogant in that sense – it only allows what it filters to be true.

Fight the half truths. Don’t let depression win.
