It is easier to stay depressed than to change because most people have become accustomed to living the lifestyle that their depression has inflicted upon them.
Change takes tremendous effort and determination.
It’s like the stories you hear of people who are addicted to cigarettes and can’t give it up. Addiction cripples them from being able to change.
Depression is similar in that you fear the possibility of happiness because being unhappy is your comfort zone and anything else seems foreign to you. You believe you are meant to be hopeless.
You are meant to be hopeful. You are meant to live with joy but you are resistant to change.
There are 7 specific reasons you are resistant to overcome your depression.
You fear the thought of being happy because it requires you to change your current lifestyle.
You fear the unknown of what life would be like for you to be happy.
Change terrifies you because there are no guarantees in life.
To overcome depression you must defeat this fear but you are not willing to conquer it.
You are not willing to put in the work necessary to overcome depression.
You rather live below your potential and be mediocre because it’s comfortable and what you are used to doing.
To live permanently free from depression you must build all the energy you have and focus on what it takes for you to be happy.
You lack confidence in yourself that you can live any different from the way you have been living.
You doubt your capacity to get better.
