    What’s your depression like… is it long term or short term? And by short term I mean situational… good news is that situational depression can go away with a little hard work! Don’t let the holidays get you down, no matter what time of year it is we can work on depression together. Which type do you think you have and what can you do to help overcome it?

I’ve learned that situational depression usually passes on its own or I can just find ways to bring myself back to reality. I haven’t found a way to deal with my seasonal depression though. I think a big issue is I have been reluctant to try therapy for a long time, so this may be something I should just force myself to do.
