Quote of the Day

If you are depressed you are living in the past,
If you are anxious you are living in the future,
If you are at peace you are living in the present.

One thought on “Quote of the Day

  1. What if thinking about the future makes you depressed? What if you’re depressed because in the present, you don’t make enough to pay your current bills? What if you’ve had major depressive episodes since age eleven? Most preteens aren’t focused on the past. What if your anxiety is caused by a past physical assault?
    Quotes like these do not benefit individuals with legitimate mental illnesses. Telling people that they should be at peace and living in the present is not effective. It almost comes off as blame: blaming individuals for their mental illness. The only people that would benefit from quotes like these are those experiencing a temporary funk.
