It is important to limit (fight against) depressive thoughts as much as possible. CBT works well for this. Too much depressive thinking (psychosocial stress) can prevent treatment from working robustly and cause treatment breakthrough. I sometimes use the phrase "depressive pressure" to describe the stress placed on the brain by depressive thinking and anxiety. Too much depressive pressure can eventually produce enough chronic force to destabilize brain function. To allow these negative thoughts to continue unabated serves to trigger and perpetuate depression.

Depressive thinking > depressive pressure > depression > depressive thinking > depressive pressure, etc. Depression is thus a self-reinforcing dynamic.

I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
