I'd like to just add a few more things that have helped me:

1. Positive thinking in itself is not going to get you anywhere. You can think "things'll get better," and "I'm a strong person and it's taken a lot to deal with this" and so on...positive thoughts..all you want- but- it won't do you any good if you don't believe it. It's about putting your emotional committment behind these thoughts, and believing them. Not just trying to think that. If you can find a way to do this, it makes EVERYTHING easier. You can even listen to positive music, and if you believe it, it'll make you feel better. ( If beliefs and faith in yourself sound silly to you in the face of depression- think about this- believing positive things and being good to yourself is just the flipside of the same coin as negativity. You have more faith than many people, it's just faith in the wrong things. We have had great faith in our worthlessness and great belief in our helplessness)

2. For those who are suicidal: Albert Camus, the man who is the author of the qoute "In the midst of winter I found in me an invincible summer," is also the author of this qoute: "The great thing about suicide, is that you can always do it later." This may not sound very helpful, but it is a foolproof method for avoiding sucide and still validating your pain at the same time. Just keep going, always thinking in the face of suicide that you can always just do it later. Do this till your life is ended on it's on terms. Believe me, things can get better- but sometimes they do it within their own season and time. Without suffering, there would be no spiritual or moral growth.
