Depression can begin small, but can produce some of the most vicious cycles.
We can all have a sad day, this is normal. If we have the skills we can have a sad day, use self compassion and coping strategies, and feel better later. When we're sad we kinda know that it will end.
Depression on the other hand, can feel never-ending. Our inner voice becomes a constant critic, or worse, an abusive monster. It can feel like you're on a boat with too many holes to stop it from sinking, and a feeling of not even being able to bother to try to plug them up.
Others have described depression like a fog you didn't realise was there, sometimes so thick you can't even see where to place your next foot to put it in front of the other. So oppressive it can be hard to breathe, it cloys at you and turns you in circles. Dizzy, you sometimes can't even see the help being offered to you.
