Philosophy to Counterbalance Depression

Depression is personal. My depression may not be like that of others. What depresses me may not others. Still no matter the cause, it affects us. Never have I thought of this feeling. Largely I thought that it didn’t affect me.  Lately I’ve identified it. Spoken to it. Observed it and listed its characteristics. Depression is me. I am depression.
