A Short, Simple Method To Harness Your Pessimism

We all have times when we're feeling run down and pessimism strikes. "Oh, this will never work..."

Next time it strikes you and you get hit with a malaise, try this out:

Write down everything you're worried about going wrong.

Yup, in your mad pessimistic dash, just put everything down that could go wrong. It'll be an unpleasant list.

Now, here's the key part -- go away from that list until you're in a better mood.

Clinical Depression

On Shut Up and Take My Hand

Yo guys~ so if any of you guys have been following my blog since I first started here on Sett, then you'll know that I kinda had a suspicion that I had depression/ I felt like I was a little more pessimistic and down than the average teen. However, since I had no actual medical diagnosis, I was happy to just go with 'I'm kinda more...aloof, than most teens'.

Well hey. I've finally got a proper diagnosis whiiiich turned out to beeee~~

Moderate to Severe Clinical Depression.

Eh ._. Ok despite what the medically knowledgable and well pretty much logical or sane people think, I still think I'm ok. So meh. Why? Cuz yeah fine I get suicidal and I'm pessimistic at times but I'm also super confident and loud and happy and outgoing and just cuz I have my low times - I'm depressed?

Hmm wait - more so, it's not that I don't think I don't have depression. It's kinda more like: so thats an abnormal thing? I just feel like pretty much everyone would have depression at some point in their life at varying degrees of severity. I know I'm wrong however and only about half the population suffer from depression.
