    I def can agree with
    "Studies into clinical depression have yielded similar findings, leading to the development of an intriguing, but still controversial, concept known as depressive realism. This theory puts forward the notion that depressed individuals actually have more realistic perceptions of their own image, importance, and abilities than the average person. While it’s still generally accepted that depressed people can be negatively biased in their interpretation of events and information, depressive realism suggests that they are often merely responding rationally to realities that the average person cheerfully denies."

    Because I view, my life as useless, with no positive future because I know from experience and from studies but the people who tell me "you can't view life like that" even when I show them statistics from real studies seem to be delusioned in a sense
