Depressed? Maybe you ought to be April 28, 2007

Posted by Al in : people , trackback

There should be more sites and posts on the Internet which tell it to you as straight as this article does. If you are depressed it might be because your life is crap. Not because you lack serotnin, or you are insane, or even because you are eating incorrectly (although these might apply to you – I just don’t know). However, the main reason might be because you are not getting out of life what you expected, and you have to work to earn money to have even a vague chance of enjoying yourself.

It’s nice to see someone looking at life directly, and pinpointing an issue that is obvious, yet so often ignored.

This essay is a good start on stating the truth about what really causes most depression: your life sucks through no fault of your own. However, another truth that was not mentioned–and which no doubt the author is not ready to admit, or (sadly) lacks the insight–is that in many cases (perhaps most) your life will suck till the day you die. No matter what you do to change things, it will always suck. So the real issue, as I see it, is: How does one manage to live a good, decent life, in spite of this frightening reality?

That’s what alcohol was invented for.
