Hello. I signed on to this website a while back, and didn't feel like visiting regularly after March.. During this time, my depression was almost magically getting better. At the same time, my irrational beliefs about reality were being replaced with more rational ones. Looking back at my old self, I almost wondered why I was depressed in the first place. But, it wasn't a spontaneous recovery. I think it's completely fair to say that at this time I was listening to a modern western philosopher (modern as in, still alive and makes youtube videos) and listening to his material really made me feel better. Although for me, I always attributed my own depression with ancient philosopher's generally depressing ideas, whereas this one was positive (and convincing, which was the important part.) So, I just wanted to say my account. I feel much better, and have been feeling better consistently. The only times I get depressed are when I think about careers and work, although even then they're becoming more sparse and less strong.
