There are times in our life when we are simply drowning. It can feel like there is nothing left to give and like you don’t even recognize yourself anymore.
You might feel hopeless, lonely, and utterly exhausted.
Even the simplest of activities can be too much to bear.
Work becomes daunting and you might find yourself unable to concentrate and always falling behind. Your relationships may feel like they are failing and you might find yourself spending more and more time alone. Things you used to enjoy don’t bring you the same pleasure and you torment yourself with guilt for not being able to live life the way you used to.
You might sleep all the time, or maybe not at all. You might seek comfort from food, cope in unhealthy ways, or you might even feel like you have lost the will to live. You feel angry, irritable, and tearful more often than not and enough is enough.
There is hope.

- improving self-efficacy and hope
- replacing unhealthy patterns of negative self-talk to reduce guilt and self-loathing
- increasing awareness of the signs/symptoms of depression
- improving self-care and healthy coping to reduce symptoms
- increasing support and connections with others
- working with a professional to manage suicidal thoughts or self-harming behaviors
