Dating for depressives speed dating sound track
Shannon Kolakowski, Psy D is a clinical psychologist, author and relationship expert.
However there is one issue I’ve never seen addressed on this site (or any other for that matter).
You might be second-guessing yourself, feeling bad about yourself, having trouble concentrating at work, and can't sleep or eat normally.
My first suggestion is to definitely seek professional help if it feels unmanageable -- most people who get help find relief from their symptoms.
Work on yourself first.”Essentially, I’m asking you “How does a depressed person find love in a society that believes that depressed people are not deserving of love? Once I got past the initial trauma and found my footing, the turbulence passed and I’ve been lucky enough to have smooth sailing ever since. You can appreciate all the reasons you have to live and all the blessings in your life but still not feel good about it.
But I’ve never forgotten what it was like to have that demon inside me and not be able to conquer it. This is just my long way of validating where you’re coming from: I wouldn’t wish depression on my worst enemy.
Remind yourself of the good friends you have, celebrate when things go well at work, or call to mind past positive experiences you've had in dating.
