Isn’t that an amazing photo? Do you think if you were the one right there on that mountaintop, taking in that view, that you would be able to gain some new perspective on your life?
A recent article by one of my favourite depression writers John Folk-Williams titled ‘Changing Core Beliefs about Depression’ got me thinking…. You may want to read it yourself along with other great stuff on his blog ‘Storied Mind’ and see if it tweaks some new thinking for you too.
He talks about the core beliefs of his own depression story like this: “The core beliefs of my depression story are bleak: things don’t work out, I stumble and fail, I don’t have much energy or motivation, I’m no good at getting along with people, in groups I’m invisible, and on it goes.”
