4 thoughts on “Depression is a choice

  1. This has reminded me of a talk by psychiatrist R D Laing. He told how he had spent a session with one of his depressed clients, chatting and telling jokes, and when the time was up the patient was aggrieved that his condition had not been discussed at all. RDL, who I think suffered from depression himself, simply said: hasn’t this last hour shown you something? When he said that, and as far as I understood anything about depression at that time, it felt as if a window of opportunity had been opened – if only a crack.

    • Thank you for sharing your insight, Tish. To be able to interact with RDL, I suppose, part of the therapy and treatment, that little do we know. It is on that crack that a light will shine in. Light is visible in the darkness as well.
