When struggling with depression and anxiety listen to what you say and pick out the negative words you use and then seek a more positive way of saying things. It takes time and practice, however it is achievable.
Search out ways of conveying what you want to say in a more affirmative way.
There is an advert for Pantene shampoo and conditioner that states that it won’t happen overnight but it will happen.
That is what you must remember.
