Depression isn’t something I’ve experienced much of in my life thankfully. I’ve often had to manage stress and anxiety but luckily not depression.
In this Gen X shorts episode I wanted to share my own very recent experience of what I now recognise as depression in the hope that maybe it will help other people struggling with emotions that feel alien to them during this time of uncertainty and change.
I realise we will all experience emotions differently and how we choose to respond to those emotions will also be different for each of us. Maybe my response isn’t what the textbooks would advise but withdrawing and spending time feeling a little bit sorry for myself seemed to work for me.
Stay safe everyone.
