    The news depresses me. And all the horrors of the world done to children, animals, the elderly and basically the helpless and all good people....
    Missing persons cases...
    I count my blessings everyday, I don`t have material riches but I have my children .And that is the key to my happiness. And my pets.

    You needed an other for this question. Life isn't black or white, it is filled with shades of gray. Life is filled with many joys and many tragic events. How we react to each and every one affects how we will feel emotionally. There are sad times when people get ill and pass away...it is normal to feel down at this time. But, there are joyful times as well and we all have an obligation to ourselves to cherish life. Go to therapy, discuss your sadness, do what you need to to in order to get back on your feet. Most depression is situational caused by natural happenings in life and are temporary....the loss of a spouse, the break-up of a marriage or partner, a move, a job loss, the empty nest syndrome etc. It is normal and natural to feel loss and sadness. When it becomes a way of life and you cannot deal with it , you need to get help. Because, life is for the living and much too
    precious not to enjoy. Life isn't one thing or the other.....it is a gift we are given packed with an abundance of adventures....we choose how to enjoy them. We live in a time where if you cannot cope on your own, there are so many people, places and medicines to turn too. My husband, who passed away, fought depression.

The ironic thing is that he probably didn't overcome depression until he battled cancer. His mind was focused on staying alive. He finally realized what a gift living was. I only wish he had been able to
    see that sooner. I have felt despair at various times in my life but knew it was situational and have never stayed down for long. I can feel sadness and loss without being depressed.

    For those of us who battle constantly against depressive illnesses life is a constant struggle to try and make the best of things. Depression, like alcoholism is best dealt with on a one day at a time basis.

    It depends on how you look at the circumstances you face in life. If you deal with them head-on you will be able to handle them better. If not, then you make things more complicated..

    There are some very depressing moments in life. And sometimes we get caught in them.
    But I think we ultimately have to choose our perspective and know we can move away from depression into positivity. When we start finding the positive in all of these situations, we can have a much better life.

    I don't really disagree completely, but, it is what you make it. Some have trouble facing it, some just say "That's life" and move on. Actually, I got dragged into depression when I was in my twenties, missed several weeks work. I made up my mind then that that was it, it sucks, it's REALLY not worth it and I've had it under control since then.

    Some have clinical depression that is not determined by external circumstances. . Then there are those that get depressed from external situations like job loss, death of loved one etc.

    And it can be enraging, frustrating, boring and dangerous. It can also be joyful, amazing, astounding, peaceful and glorious. But, it's all we have so we might just as well make the best out of it.

    I intend to be one of those who slides in at the finish, battered, worn and covered in sweat but shouting, "Woo Hoo! What a ride!"

    But it always gets better :) I just went through a really rough break-up that I thought would take forever to get over, now we talked it over, and decided were best as friends and its all better. I was so depressed and everything seemed so dark, now I'm okay. It always gets better :D

    Sometimes it can be. Sometimes it's just the opposite. Sometimes depression is clinical and can be treated.

    Well, there are individual things in life that can be depressing. But not life itself.

    An analogy: You can be deaf in one ear, but still be healthy. Your overall health is good. It's just that one of your ears doesn't work.

    It's the same thing in life. There are individual things in life that aren't good. But in the overall, life is usually good. At least for most people.
