Lazing about
I used to enjoy taking long walks with Kevin. I used to enjoy engaging in new activities with Kevin. I can now take action by helping him get out of his slump. I automatically think that I have no energy for a walk. I think that I’ll be cold or bored when I do them. I think I will get angry if I’m out there. Then I feel bored and depressed. This all leads to inactivity and depressive behavior. I avoid and withhold from Kevin. These thoughts lead to more depression and takes away pleasure. I have scheduled a session to plan a small date with Kevin every Saturday at 7pm. To take a walk or have a special meal. I took action!
