Hello. One of the most frequent advices I have heard from people regarding my depression is, "Keep fighting. Never give up." But after 12 years of never-ending torments and depression, I start losing faith and begin to wonder if it is worth fighting after all. Basically, my depression is so chronic and erratic that it never surprises me how often I fall down and have to bounce right back up. But recently, instead of somehow getting myself back up, I start having apathetic thoughts like, "Why even bother? What is the use? What did all the tryings, struggles, therapies, and personal efforts get me? I am still struggling mightily after 12 years." In the past, I had more hope, optimism and high morality which helped me bounce back quickly. But now, after 12 years, I lack hope, optimism and get easily demoralized by each setback making it hard to bounce back. How do you guys bounce back after each setback instead of giving up or feeling demoralized? Thanks in advance for insights.
