You Are Not Weak

Do you ever think that you're "weak"?

Sadly, "I'm weak" can be a very natural thought for people with depression to experience – particularly as a result of, according to The Depression Project's community members:

  • Struggling to be able to complete tasks, function and “deal with life” as well as other people who don’t have depression;
  • Being told to “toughen up” and/or “just get over it” by friends and family;
  • Breaking down over “something small” that if someone didn’t have depression, they likely wouldn’t break down over.

In saying that, though, the negative thought “I’m weak” is just that – a negative thought – as opposed to a fact. And, for this reason, we’ve put together this cognitive behavioural therapy-based journal, in order to help you:

  • See for yourself that this negative thought is not true;
  • Start feeling better about yourself moving forwards.

Here’s A Breakdown Of Exactly What This Journal Will Cover

PART 1: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Techniques To Help You Overcome The Negative Thought “I’m Weak” Anytime It Is Triggered

In the first part of this journal, we’ll share with you a wide variety of tried, tested, cognitive behavioural therapy techniques to help you overcome the negative thought “I’m weak” anytime it is triggered by one of the factors that we mentioned above (i.e. struggling to be able to complete tasks, function and “deal with life” as well as other people who don’t have depression; being told to “toughen up” and/or “just get over depression”; and/or breaking down over “something small”).

Additionally, each technique we share with you will also be accompanied by one or more guided journal prompts - in order to help you think about how you could implement that technique as effectively as possible.

PART 2: Strategies To Help Make It Easier To Function When You Have Depression

Something you may not know is that while it will almost certainly be more difficult for you to function when you have depression, there are strategies you can implement that will at least make functioning when you have depression easier. And, if you’re able to implement some of these strategies and therefore function a little bit better, then rather than thinking negative thoughts like “I’m weak” and feeling ashamed and bad about yourself, you’re more likely to feel empowered and proud of yourself instead.

On that note, in Part 2 of this journal:

  • We’ll share with you a variety of strategies that members of The Depression Project’s community have told us help them to function when they’re in a depressive episode;
  • We’ll also share some journal prompts for you to think about and write out your response to - in order to help you implement these strategies as effectively as possible.

PART 3: Additional Suggestions To Help You Cope With Other People’s Comments That Can Make You Feel Like You’re “Weak”

In Part 3 of this journal:

  • We’ll share with you several additional suggestions to help you cope with comments like “toughen up” or “just get over your depression” for example that can cause you to think “I’m weak” - in such a way that, moving forwards, these comments will lose a lot of their power to be able to make you think this thought.
  • Additionally, we’ll also share with you a handful of journal prompts to help you think about how you could implement these suggestions as effectively as possible.

PART 4: Strategies To Make It Less Likely That You’ll Break Down Over “Something Small”

Because snapping over “something small” tends to happen instinctively in the heat of the moment, you may think that there’s not much you can do to prevent it from happening. However, you’ll be happy to know that there absolutely is! And, if you’re able to implement such strategies and therefore be more in control of your emotions and less likely to snap over “something small”, then rather than thinking “I’m weak” and feeling ashamed and bad about yourself, you’re more likely to think positive thoughts like “I’m in control of my emotions”, and feel good about yourself as a result.

With this objective in mind, in Part 4 of this journal:

  • We’ll share with you a variety of strategies that members of The Depression Project’s community have told us make them less likely to break down and snap over “something small”;
  • We’ll also share a guided journal prompt for you to think about and write out your response to, in order to help you implement these strategies as effectively as possible.
