Grandiosity

"The denial
Denial can hinder any progress in good self care 
or minimizing of our depression is sustained... by the grandiose myths parishioners tend to whisper in our ear, such as, "You are so strong and confident"; "You work so hard and do so much"; "You possess such remarkable faith." 


We either buy into these myths and thus disavow our depression, or else we are reluctant to ruin the image others have of us. 

Consequently we experience fatigue, irritation, and the erosion of our spirit, but rationalize that we are too strong, too smart, or too successful to be afflicted with real depression."
