A Conversation in My Head When Morning Depression Strikes


Breathe in:

I know today is going to suck, I can feel it.

Breathe out:

You can always make the best of it.

Breathe in:

Same stuff, different day. Nothing is going to change.

Breathe out:

You can start that change today.

Breathe in:

Yeah… but I feel so angry. Inward and outward.

Breathe out:

Let’s not get hasty. Put things into perspective.

Breathe in:

Screw this! I would rather be in my bed sleeping. At least I can’t feel things in my sleep.

Breathe out:

You can do this! I can do this!

Breathe in:

Alright… Alright. I’ll try.

Breathe out:

That’s all you can do. 

Breathe in:

We will see how it goes first before I downward spiral.

Breathe out:

OK. Just try not to lose your sh*t!

Breathe in:

Yeah, but the problem is I live too much inside my head. Too many thoughts and feelings ruminating…

Breathe out:

You’re not alone. Fight your demons, or let them win. It’s your choice. 

Breathe in:

Can I go back to sleep now?

Breathe out:

No. You need to keep your head up. Find hope and just keep living.
