  1. spoken like a person who has never experienced depression. Nice try…but it’s not as easy as “find help” and “think more postively”. It’s a matter of LOVING that part of yourself…not changing it prior to acceptance.
    and by the way…depression has nothing to do with “happiness”…it has to do with “contendedness”, of which happiness is a natural by product.
    Thereapy is very inportant…an objective vewpoint to unravel the mze of experiences that contribute to the picture of who you are. It’s lovely to see a sight dedicated to helping folks with depression. a good intention! But…not from the viewpoint of the afflicted. 🙂 which is less helpful.

    Peace

    • I actually didn’t write the article nor did I post it. I’m getting help setting up a variety of social media. I do thank you for your point and will take a look at that article. Based on your comment, I have a feeling the article did little to honor a person who is experiencing depression. You are right, it is imperative to love that part of yourself, welcome it. It’s part of who we are. Not something that defines us necessarily, but is part of us. I thank you for your courage to point out the flaws in the article. Education is important. There’s nothing more damaging than false information. I know that one first hand! I hope you will give me a second chance 🙂

      • This was a very cool response…fearless and ego free. I must have ALLOT to learn from you. I’d give you ten chances.
        ~peace~ and nice to meet you 🙂
