As someone who has dealt with depression my entire life -- first therapist was at age 12! -- I'd like to share something with you all that one of my therapists shared with me.

The world is a depressing place, if you view it through the lens presented by the news media. Maybe ditch all that noise, and see if you're happier.

I don't like the idea of being uninformed any more than anyone else does. But this truly, truly helped me, and I say it on the off chance that it might help one of you.
