“Depression is emotional. It is not logical. People often try to explain and rationalize to others why they shouldn’t be depressed, or tell them to look on the bright side and start pointing out all of the positives they should be seeing, etc. But the truth is, depression is an emotional state of being that a person cannot be rationalized out of.

To reflect on this question, one significant reason is because the tendency when people try to “fix” things is to throw logic and concrete solutions at it. But depression isn’t something you fix, it’s something you work through.”

So much truth in this article. These parts especially, but go read the whole thing, even if you only know someone dealing with depression. Or maybe especially if you only know someone dealing with depression!
