Depression. That one topic no one likes to talk about. Some people don't take it seriously, others simply don't understand it. People tend to say that those with everything don't have the right to be depressed. Saying "why are you depressed? Look at all the great things around you" is like saying "what do you mean you have asthma? look at all this air". People don't choose to be affected by this disease, and yes, it IS a disease, because you can't control it on your own, some medications work while others don't, and it affects you in ways no one is prepared for. It affects their mind in unimaginable ways; it IS a mental illness, anyways. It affects their whole life, along with the people around them; it's an ILLNESS. Some people hide in the darkness, facing their battles alone... so if you suspect that someone is depressed, talk to them. They are human beings, not wild animals that you should fear. And if you deal with depression, seek help. Happiness is not as far as it seems.
