Podcast Episode 133: Why Identifying Emotions Gives You Power

When you can identify your emotions, you have the power to shape how they affect your emotional well-being. Let’s challenge the conventional understanding of depression as a standalone condition, proposing instead that it is a complex amalgamation of emotions. 

This discussion not only sheds light on common misunderstandings about depression but also provides practical advice for managing emotions that can often feel overwhelming. Whether you’re dealing with sadness, anxiety, or feelings of loneliness, Dr. Holly and Alicia offer thoughtful guidance and actionable tips to help you navigate these challenges and improve your overall mental health.

What’s in this episode:

  • Why we shouldn’t label “depression” as a single emotion
  • Strategies for dealing with persistent feelings of sadness and how to effectively manage them
  • Exploring the roots of anger and its association with fear
    The complex interplay between shame, guilt, and depression
  • How indifference and loss of interest are often misinterpreted as depression
