Depression is a mental health disorder that can cause a person to feel overwhelmed, hopeless, and unmotivated. It is more than just feeling “down” or “sad” and can be debilitating. Symptoms of depression include changes in appetite, sleep, energy, concentration, and thoughts. People with depression often have negative thoughts such as feeling worthless, helpless, or that nothing will ever get better. It is important to remember that these thoughts are not true and can be changed.
Overcoming Negative Thoughts
It can be difficult to overcome negative thoughts, but it is possible. One of the most important things is to be aware of the thoughts and recognize that they are not true. It can help to challenge the thoughts by asking questions and looking for evidence. For example, if someone has the thought “I am not good enough” they can challenge it by asking “What makes me not good enough?” and looking for evidence that this is not true.
Other strategies for managing negative thoughts include distraction, positive self-talk, and seeking professional help. Distraction can be helpful for getting out of a negative thought spiral. Positive self-talk can help to reframe negative thoughts into something more positive. Finally, seeking professional help can be helpful for identifying underlying causes of depression and developing coping strategies.

“Du Darfst Nicht Alles Glauben, Was Du Denkst: Meine Depression”
Depression is a serious mental health condition that affects millions of people around the world. Unfortunately, it is often misunderstood and many people suffer in silence, believing that they must face everything alone. But this doesn’t have to be the case. We can, and should, challenge the negative thoughts that depression brings so that we can start to rebuild our lives.
I am here to tell you my story of how I fought to overcome my depression by confronting the thoughts that had taken over my life. It all started when I started to notice changes in my behaviour and emotions; I was constantly down, my motivation to do anything had disappeared and I was having debilitating negative thoughts about myself.
I knew that I had to do something about it, so I went to my doctor and got an official diagnosis of depression. With the help of a support network and therapy, I started to confront my thoughts head-on. I actively challenged the negative thoughts and beliefs surrounding my depression by writing down factual truths that contradicted what I was feeling.
Writing these and saying them out loud was an effective way of getting rid of negative thoughts and of bringing positive, factual truths back into focus. This practice was a large part of my recovery and it allowed me to move away from the negative and start to focus on the positive.
I believe everyone should be encouraged to challenge their own thoughts and build a support network that they can reach out to when they are feeling down. If we can challenge our negative thoughts, then we can start to rebuild our lives and take charge of our mental health. We don’t have to believe everything we think.
My journey with depression is an example of how important it is to challenge the lies we tell ourselves so that we can make positive steps towards recovery. By embracing the power of positive thinking and building a strong support network, we can learn to live with depression in a healthy and productive way.
