In case you were wondering, the name of this blog is a reference to Dr. James Gordon's book, Unstuck. Dr. Gordon views depression as a point along ones life journey where we are stuck. But, it is also a point where we have the choice to reflect, change, and grow- thus becoming unstuck.
There are varying degrees of being "stuck." Stuck can be as simple as the blues, or as serious as a severe clinical depression. All of us get "stuck" at some point in our lives. We get tired of our jobs, our relationships, our daily life in general.
Recognizing the things that led us to become stuck is an important step in making sure that it doesn't happen again. But, we must not dwell on those things- the key to recovery is not to focus how we got stuck, but how to get unstuck.
