If you are feeling low or depressed, try not calling it depression, or sadness, or feeling low. As these words naturally have negative connotations and do not help you to feel better. Winston Churchill called it 'Black Dog'. Call it by whatever name you feel happy with it but something that is not negative. I always think of depression when I have it as a black puppy, a really cute labrador....

What You'll Do
