I was hard on myself.

 

A Depressed Anonymous member shares  their story (A victim of my own mind #9 )  of recovery  in    Depressed Anonymous. The following is an excerpt.

“I had always known that I was hard on  myself. I reamed myself every time something bad  had happened. “Why can’t I find someone to love me?  Or “I don’t understand how I can be nice and people still keep hurting me.”  Or “Why isn’t God looking after me.”  But for some reason when I realized  I was doing this to myself, it made me realize that maybe all I would have to do is stop doing it.  All of a sudden it made sense.

If I tell myself negative things, I feel negative. If I tell myself nothing I feel nothing.  So, if I tell myself positive things, eventually I’ll have to feel positive.”
