Passivity is the Leading Cause of Depression

PASSIVITY leads to depression. Thinking of yourself as “having depression” fuels your depression. You don’t “have” depression. You think and act in certain ineffective ways, and it alters your mood in a negative way. Your challenge isn’t to “get treatment” for your mood. The very phrase implies passivity. This will only make your mood worse. Your challenge is to get ACTIVE in your thinking and actions. Even if in small baby steps, to start. Passivity will break your spirit.
