Living with depression is hard. I often describe depression as life on “hard mode” because when you’re depressed simple things like getting out of bed, brushing your teeth, and getting dressed can be herculean tasks. I used to try to complete such tasks with sheer willpower and feel frustrated and guilty when I wasn’t able to do them. Then one day, I learned that there is a better way. And believe it or not, I learned that lesson from cheating at video games.
