I have had many friends and loved ones become depressed over the years. I have
seen drugs help, I have seen a change of relationships or scenery help, I have seen
a recommitment to helping others help. Many things can help. But what all those
things have in common is that underneath them is a little flame of ‘futurethink’.
A little glimmer, a glow, that I might have a reason to be, a reason to get up, a reason
to care, that is what they, me, you, anyone needs.
So, if you are depressed today, whether clinically, severely, or just in a funk, remember
that if you are alive, you have hope, if you are not, you don’t.
“Depression is the inability to construct a future.” – Rollo May
