I was talking with a lovely client who helped me develop this image of an event horizon, which is a place neither fully in nor fully out of depression. It is a place of choice and possibilities. We are not free, of course, the beliefs we have about depression actually limit what we can see, think and feel. Nevertheless, we still have some choice left to us and we can use this choice to decide to continue into the black hole of depression or move away from it. Empowerment is using what you have to do what you can.
