The DIY Couturier’s “21Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You’re Depressed.”

This was passed to me by a patient, and I really appreciated it, so I’m sharing here…

Rosalind Robertson’s blog on Esquire 21 Tips and MORE 

(I HAVE RE-EDITED THIS TO CORRECT FOR MY ASSUMPTION OF THE AUTHOR’s GENDER in ESQUIRE, a “Men’s” Magazine)

The author repeats lots of truths about exercise, diet, dressing to impress one’s self — the things we can’t hear too many times. She also suggests facing a window whenever possible, to never stop looking out and observing life. I enjoy thinking of how the writer has heard these platitudes, gathered them, wrote them down, related to them, threw out some of them, made them his own.  She’s got a sassy way of responding to annoying “Happy people” who pester us to Try Harder, because if we’re depressed, we must not be trying hard enough, and all we need is to obey their pep talk.

So, whether or not it’s because I tell you too or not, “Have a nice day!”

  1. Wow, very cool. Thanks for the repost. Friend told me to google my blog and – wow. So thanks.
    (But fyi, I’m a She. Not that I mind, most people think the post is by a male writer.)

    • Very cool, indeed, Rosalind Robertson. I appreciate the blogging and the Wow. (People often mistake me for a woman, but on the phone, which I usually don’t mind – but that’s a whole other topic). So Thanks back at you, keep up the great work
