Depression is your mind playing tricks on you, about yourself.
If you have thoughts like these, don’t believe them:
I’m a loser.
I’m a failure.
No one cares about me.
No one cares if I live or die.
We have countless fleeting, competing and meaningless thoughts all the time. Though thoughts like the ones above are not unusual, sometimes they can become regular or more intense and seem normal and true.
When you start to believe you lack value or worth, this is an experience of depression.
