Coping up with the D

maxresdefault.jpg

3 ways in which I learned to cope up with my depression:
1) Proactive – Everyone is different from one another. Know yourself. Know your symptoms. Know what triggers you. Develop your own ways to cope up with your depression.
2) Urgency – Delegate tasks. Know which one should be done first before depression hits you (because we all know depression stops you from accomplishing things even when we need to). Do what needs to be done before you do what you want. Know what is urgent. Avoid stress because stress leads to depressive cycles.
3) Difficulty – List down tasks from easy, medium and difficult. Make yourself feel accomplished and ready to take more difficult tasks ahead. Tell depression “You don’t have me. I got this.” 

(things I tell myself on good days)
