One of the things that seems to exacerbate my depression is the my tendency to get trapped in situations that will put me in a bad mood. These situations might not always be obvious to those around me. Letting these situations get into my head sort of lets the bad mood snowball.

I’m getting better and recognizing though when it is just better to avoid getting enmeshed in a pit of drama and just walk on by.My family of origin is famous for not being able to walk on by, so it can be a hard habit to break.
