Right now, I’ve already stopped taking antidepressants as I don’t think they’re useful enough for me. Can’t say the same for others, as we have different physiology. I have just accepted in myself that maybe there is a depression that never goes away. We call that “treatment resistant depression”. And in conjunction to that, we have what we call “highly functioning depressed people”. I no longer buy the overly simplistic explanation of “chemical imbalance theory”. I’ve actually used all those serotonin inhibitors to no effect. Although I wouldn’t want to dismiss its efficacy in other people. As antidepressants goal is to prevent you from taking suicide or from being totally crazy. It’s an early intervention. But for the rest who are on the milder tolerable side, I think just living with it will do. Or in the Bible: “Carry your cross”.
I’ve recently had a therapy session. Instead of blaming the douchebag I’m reporting, all blame is on me. So in essence, we are going to negate the fact that good and evil exists. That there are simply douchebags out there waiting for their death and time in hell. I don’t believe in this approach. If I would tread this path, I had to take drugs, marijuana so that everything will be good vibes. Or I will be retarded who has no social awareness. Or I will be crazy and just laugh for no reason. All of them have already lost their mental faculty. So I’ve realized that the best strategy is to just go live with it. Ignore the assholes but never portray the assholes as saints in your head. Ok your mental health will improve but we do have spirituality as well, right? Not seeing the bad in the society will make us happy, but make us evil as well. I maybe happy but tomorrow I’ll die and go to hell.
