      Stumbled upon this piece from Psychology Today and thought that it would make for an interesting read. It's called Winter Depression: Separating Facts From Fiction.

      According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 92% of the population reports some sort of winter blues. The effects of seasonal depression are even greater if you are going through a stressful experience like job hunting, relationship problems or infertility.

      It shares some perceptive insights. Here’s one that’s particularly thought-provoking:

      Pain is not an accurate indicator of tissue damage. You can experience terrible pain in the complete absence of bodily harm (e.g., a nail in the shoe but not the foot), and little pain in the presence of significant damage (e.g. a nail to the face!). That is: just because something hurts does not necessarily mean your body is in danger of harm. “Hurt” and “harm” are not the same.

It is seen where other addictions are present as well as where anxiety, depression, and personality issues manifest and define the members’ daily lives. This dependence robs us of a kind of strength or ability to focus on ourselves.
