Inspirational depression quotes are affirmations to help us remember that things are not always negative as they seem. People with depression are more prone to social anxiety and must constantly match their emotions to the life around them and adjust their attitude accordingly. Such quotes provide us the platform to see life as it is and more importantly as it can be, not as our feelings tell us it is. In one way or another, depression quotes will help us to see that we are not a burden on others and that others welcome us in their lives.

Depression can lower a person’s confidence and self esteem and interfere with the capability to get help. It can leave a person feeling crippled, worthless, fatigued and hopeless. However, inspirational depression quotes are something that will help to move people out from under that dark cloud and into the sunshine of a happy healthy life. Life is more about how we see ourselves than it is about how others see us.
