Someone i know sent out an email blast about how he'd achieved all his goals last year and was on track for achieving more goals this year. i found the email very personally irritating even though this blog is obviously of course a Goal Scorecard and Success Archive.
Vlad and i call the voice of depression the Depression Man. The Depression Man tells you to eat food that will make you feel crappy later. The Depression Man tells you that you suck for being depressed. The Depression Man says why bother exercising, it won't help. The Depression Man tells you to read disturbing articles on the internet instead of going to bed.
The Depression Man fights for his survival and thus sabotages the very things that would help pull you out of depression.
