I think a lot of people think that depressed people have something in their life that they are unhappy about. What if they are okay with how things are but still feel depressed? That has to be possible. I have people in my life that I love and can surround myself with things that I like, but I still feel depressed. Maybe there is a ceiling that you hit. You can only be so happy and then you will never be that happy again. Once you've reached that place of happiness maybe you need to manage your sadness. Is it reasonable to say that I am sad and depressed but there is no real reason why? I get up, go to work, pay my bills, have off on the weekends, and still feel empty. I'm in a relationship with someone I love, we have a great thing going, but I still feel like there should be more to life than this. This can't be it, can it? There has to be something more. It doesn't seem right that I can have all of that and still feel this way.
