There are many ways to do so and they are available online. But what I wish to know is how should a depressed respond to destructive criticism internally? Yes here are three main things: depressed, destructive criticism & internally. I am depressed and facing many destructive criticism daily. If someone criticizes me, I can deal with him easliy. I can say for him that he is right and it is gone. But internally, the effect I carry when after days, how should I deal with it? Should I go thru the criticism to check whether it is true or not? If it is untrue I doubt it is true because the criticism has been made by someone else. If it is true, I become tense, stressed; add to that the cruel manner used to make the criticism, it made me feel worse about myself. Headaches, diziness, weak concentration, weak functioning, becoming drowsy… are all caused by the process of EXAMINING the criticism. So what to do?
