It's All in How You See It

Are you sad? Lonely? Friendless? Always tired? Do you hate yourself? If you can answer yes to one or more of those questions, there's good news afoot: Mental illness is an illness, just like cancer, an arthritic hip or herpes. And just like complaining about them won't help any of those conditions, it won't help depression. Instead, opt for a cure; there are many now available.

Lots of people have lots of problems, and solutions await those who are motivated. Fat people go on diets. Handicapped people use crutches, canes, walkers and wheelchairs. Yet many people who suffer from ongoing depression think nothing of staying that way forever, thus placing a heavy burden on all those around them to make a difference in their lives. To change your perspective and see things in a better light, call a shrink, a priest, a teacher or whatever, but get some therapy.
