I wish I could take my own advice

I find myself giving advice that to me is very sound advice. Why is it that I can't just take my own advice? Why is it so hard to leave my house? Why is it so hard to attend my college classes or make it to work? If I could just do these things that seem so simple to my logical side of my brain then I would think that my life wouldn't feel like its constantly falling apart. What is wrong with me?

I laughed out loud when I saw your post and I don't mean to make light. Im sure I'm not the only one. oh my goodness yes. If only I could put my wonderful advice to work in my own life I would be the perfect person.

I agree with this. Recently, whenever I have a depressive episode, everyone around me tries to help by presenting the facts and stating them logically. But if logic worked when you're under your emotions, depression wouldn't affect people the way it does. It's hard. I understand.

oh god i can totally relate to this. if only i can use all the advice i told people to myself, maybe i can see the world a better place.

when you are down with all the feelings, it is hard to think of anything logically. all i can offer is some warm supports, it's okay if you don't force yourself to fight it. take it slow. simple things to others might be difficult to you. i know you posted this few days ago but i hope you are feeling a tad bit better now. hugs. xx
