The Up Side of Depression

Depression is a difficult thing to live with. But there is an upside. A fearless examination into the underlying causes of depression may yield life-changing insight. Depression is often the result of deep incongruities between expectations and reality. Unsatisfying answers to existential questions — Is this all there is? What am I doing with my life? — can lead to depression. Depression hurts. But that doesn’t mean the questions aren’t worth asking. Maybe you just need someone to help you uncover the answers.
