Depression and Dating


Hi, I’m Kimberly Seltzer with Ask an Expert,
answering your love and relationship questions Today’s question is: Dear
Kimberly I’m in a pickle. I’m depressed
because I’m not in a relationship yet the depression I feel is keeping me
from relationship. How do I fix the problem? Well, depression
can be an overwhelming thing and it can take over you. I used to be a therapist and the first thing that I would
try to assess is where the depression is stemming from. If
it’s something that’s deep rooted and you’ve been struggling with your whole
life you might need to get more support with what you’re feeling. So once you figure
out where the depression is coming from I would really take the time and not worry about dating at all – in fact, I
highly recommend it and do things that are happy for
yourself. When you fill yourself up with things that you enjoy then you are going to be happy
yourself and not be dependent on a man to fill you up and that’s when you’re gonna attract the
right person in your life if you don’t, you might keep attracting
those kinda unhealthy relationships, perhaps they’re
codependent or abusive and then you say, Well how come all the
guys that I keep dating are abusive? while the common denominator is you, and if
you’re not feeling right you’re going to attract that in your life. The
other thing is get involved in as much as possible do different things where you’re in situations
where you’re meeting different people you’re not in the same situation with the
same people all the time and hopefully that will get you in a
place where you’re feeling better about yourself and you’ll attract that right person in your
life. connect with me at your tango dot com slash experts slash Kim Seltzer
