Depression craves a target.
by Tracey Metzger
There is little worse than feeling hopelessly sad for no reason at all. So, when something mildly disturbing happens or someone says something even slightly upsetting it is almost a relief.
Finally, something or someone to blame for my unhappiness! Even if my sadness or anger is justified, I remind myself that depression accentuates and exaggerates. Depression must be my target and not the people I love.
Depression is a dark maze of emotions with no map with which to navigate. I have to remind myself that in the same way that I feel lost, so do my loved ones.
