Ignoring the Lie that You Aren’t Good Enough

Ignoring the Lie that You Aren’t Good Enough

One of the biggest challenges facing people suffering from depression is negative thoughts that prevent sufferers from receiving the help they need. One common fallacy regarding depression sufferers is that they are somehow not good enough to recover from depression. Whether you think you are not capable of recovering through treatment or think you are not valuable enough to seek treatment, neither is true and seeking treatment for depression will help you work through your problems. If you do not seek professional treatment for depression your condition will continue to worsen, but seeking treatment will give you a chance to address your problems instead of avoiding them.

Am I Good Enough to Recover From Depression?

No matter how depression has changed your outlook or circumstances in life, depression does not take away from who you are as a person. Everyone deserves to live a full and happy life, and while depression causes sustained periods of low mood levels and low self-esteem, it does not change the fact that you deserve to be happy. Depression is a mental disorder and does not mean you are worth less as a person. If you do not seek treatment you will continue suffering, but seeking treatment for depression will allow you to heal from your disorder while addressing recurring problems such as suicidal thoughts and concurrent mental disorders.

How Does Treatment Help Depression?

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, around 17 million Americans will suffer from depression within a given year. If you suspect that you or a family member may be suffering from depression you should seek treatment from a licensed mental health professional that specializes in treating depression. Therapy with a licensed professional will allow you to identify factors that make up your depression and you can learn to deal with the causes. By working with a therapist, you can focus on life problems that contribute to your depression, identify and overcome distorted thoughts and begin feeling more in control of your life instead of at the hands of a mental disorder.
