Have you ever tried saying something positive to yourself, on a regular basis? To some of us, this is a non issue.

In my case, and in many sufferers’ cases, it’s not as simple.

When your belief in yourself is non-existent, when the hatred or dislike is so deepset, when the pain is so entrenched, it makes no sense to say these words. And it’s back to the issue of can’t vs won’t – I can’t even complete the sentence sometimes. It took me at least a month of constant attempts to start saying “I am worthy of love.” I can say it now.

I just still struggle to believe it.

And things like this is why I keep trying to let others know about depression. A simple thing can be a huge struggle.

Please try to understand.
