When I am depressed, it is so so hard to get out of bed and do the things I always liked doing, but you have to start out small and kind of force yourself. I make tiny goals for myself the days I am having a depressive episode. Like take a bath, step outside for 5 minutes, find your favorite packaged food (sometimes we all need a little processed food to help). A little bit goes a long way, so when you make these tiny goals to fulfil, you will earn a little self lovin' along the way. It may take a long time but it is better from nothing at all.
