What if you were born into a world that told you this:
"There will be a time when depression comes for you.
It doesn’t always come for everyone, but if it comes for you, we want you to be aware of it.
When it does come, if it does come, then tell us.
We will arrange a party.
We hope, dearly, that one day the depression will come.
The heaviness, the lethargy, the sadness, the sense of being tired of life.
If that comes for you, my dear, then you will have made it.
That depression is the pinnacle of the human existence.
If it comes for you, you are the blessed chosen one, and together we can celebrate as a family, that you are finally depressed.
You’ve made it.
If you believed them, then treating depression, or any other kind of emotional state in this way, has the power to turn it upside-down.
Under the depression is the sense that I should not feel this way, that I should be feeling differently, that I am doing something wrong, that something is wrong, that it should not be like this.
If you were convinced that the depression coming was an exciting thing, then you would open to it and call it in so much, that it would not like to go near you again.
