Cognitive Dissonance & Depression · Daily Thoughts by Uncle Bucky

Self-identity vs. Reality

Who we identify ourselves as (who do i say that i am…or think i am) has a direct impact on our sense of well-being, safety and inner calm. Especially in these tumultuous times. Depression can be our “spidey sense” (warning) saying that our reality vs. the sense of “who am i” are in conflict. Cognitive dissonance ….. Let reality win…. Use self-inquiry to dig into the sense, and peel it away.
