Deda BS: Depression and Anxiety (202* d) RE: BS: Depression and Anxiety 01 Dec 05


For me, it was a great breakthrough to really understand that other people have thoughts, feelings, emotional experiences just like mine. Depression is isolating, it tends to make us feel that there's nobody out there who feels this way, nobody else who suffers this. That's the big lie. I'm not God's gift to the world, I'm not waiting to be discovered, I'm not the lowest of the low, nor the highest and brightest. I'm just another bozo on the bus, as my unitarian minister used to say. The thoughts and feelings I have are just human thoughts and feelings, ways of responding to life experiences, options. There are other options out there. It just takes a little effort, a little work to find them and exercise them. We can't be born with anyone else or die with anyone else, but in between we get to connect if we choose to, and it makes the road easier. It's not always easy to connect but it's rewarding. IMHO that's one of the very great beauties of folk music.
