can Overthinking lead to depression ?Watch
I wouldn't know, ask a psychiatrist (sp)
But google is stupid and always manages to find me porn when i'm being innocent and people are around.
Sounds like a case of PEBCAK
Hmmm....what the hell?
If small things please small minds, then it's a lot harder to keep a "big" mind from being depressed.
If people are so clever they should think of a way to make depression avoidable though.
A lot of people say the reason I some times get depressed is becuase I think too much. If you think about problems and stuff then its very likely to you will become depressed.
It's harsh to blame anyone that's depressed for this, and things like traumatic experiences also have a vital role in depression, but will power to overcome it and the sense and intelligence to realise you should are important. The amount of 'depressed' teenagers that self harm these days it shocking and disguisting - many have nice lives and claim to be depressed, and i'm sick of being the one to console them.
Most of the above won't actually apply to that many people - others think along different lines. However, it serves as an example of how thought can lead us into depression, as well as back out again, a pattern which applies in other situations (with different content). The important thing is to keep learning. Sinking into depression over various different issues, and learning how to overcome each one, is far more positive than going round in circles.
