When you have depression, anxiety, or any of the mental disorders that rear their ugly heads during young adulthood, simple tasks may not be simple for you.
We assume our personalities are the problem when that isn’t actually the case.
The symptoms of depression sometimes present themselves as flaws. I kept thinking if I adjusted my attitude or if I weren’t such a bad person then I would feel better.
Progress is being able to come out and say I have struggled quietly with this for too long. I’m no longer invalidating my own feelings and experiences.
