People often mistakenly believe that depression is caused by a person giving up and not trying hard enough to feel better. However, this is exactly what depression would want you to think. The problem with depression isn’t that a person has given up, but more likely, that a person is trying too hard to feel better. When you try too hard to accomplish goals or expectations of yourself, you are trying to do something that you may not have the energy or motivation to do. This results in failing to accomplish those goals or expectations, which makes depression worse. Failure saps motivation and energy and fuels depression. Therefore, the first step in overcoming depression is to give up on bigger goals and expectations and set goals that match your actual level of motivation and energy. By doing so, you will likely achieve those goals, which then builds motivation and energy, thereby beginning the process of overcoming depression.
