Most of us know a person or two suffering from depression. As treatment, those people go to psychologists and take pills and the recovery time could take ages. Do you think such treatments are necessary ? Does it really make a difference? I personally believe that depression is a state of mind that people put themselves in. Being more of a mental illness than anything, it is my unwavering credence that the only cure is to look at the world in a positive perspective. Just as we can drag ourselves into depression for trivial matters that we might not realize it to be trivial at the time, we can as well pull ourselves out of it. All we need is determination and a positive attitude towards life. What do you think are ways to do so ? How do you bring positivity into your life? Do the type of friends you have make a difference? Can you cure yourself by yourself ? Share your thoughts !
