Forget It!

Everyone has stress; it’s a normal part of life. Getting up, going to work, driving a car, having a disagreeable discussion, catching a cold, and a poor night’s sleep are staples in the diet of everyday men and women.

The problem is when you dwell on problems and let the stress overwhelm you and you end up with depression, like staying in the woods too long and getting poison ivy. Forget the bad day at work when you get home; don’t dwell on it. Forget the guy who cut you off on the freeway and the argument you just had with your spouse. It’s not what happens to you that’s important; it’s how you take it in. My suggestion – forget it!

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
