Depression Rut, advice? - May 31st 2010, 03:32 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of peer pressure or bullying, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So, I was in a relationship for four months with a lot of verbal degrading. Myself esteem is low. I am very angry a lot of the time. I am still subconsciously repeating things to myself about how much I suck essentially. I'm weeding out the degrading. Its a bit like playing whack a mole actually. Anyways, that is what the cause of the depression rut is.

I'm posting for advice on speeding up the process. I seem to have a hard time figuring out how to figure out what abusive tendency I am using agents myself until they come out in conversation against someone else. Like my mother, who really, really, does not deserve it. It causes me a huge a mount of pain to treat her like that.

I'm sorry to hear you've gone through that, but well done for trying to get out of this rut.

The best advice I can give is to talk to somebody about this. A counsellor, psychologist, etc, can be very helpful, because they offer and outsider's perspective, and can often be able to spot your behaviour patterns before you can. Not only that, they can also give you strategies for dealing with it yourself, and for getting yourself out of this 'rut' you feel like you're in.

Good luck.

I've been through something a lot like this, but with my dad. And what helps me with the constant negative talk in my head is the abcd method. A = activating event, so figure out the event that happened to make you feel like that. B = belief, this is how it makes you feel about yourself. C = consequence, so what is the bad thing about feeling like that. D = Dispute the belief, find ways to turn that belief around so you can feel better yourself. A big thing I do is talk to friends, they will tell you if its the truth or not and help you through your down periods. Hope this helps. Take care.
