Now, I'm not saying we should be delusionally depressed about things like not having a freaking airplane or others not liking the way we dress.

But there should always, in my opinion, be a depression about certain things. Death, pain, nine eleven, war, injustice, the constant murder. Lovelessness. If you are depressed about the right things then it is not an illness.

Wouldn't you agree?

Nope
Life is rough. If your life doesn't turn into this dark stage about these things then there is something wrong with you. All of the things that should make you depressed are very serious, and they happen all of the time. How could it not turn into a dark stage, what kind of person would I be? For it not to turn into a serious dark stage I would have to either be stupid, or a hypocrite. And acting as if I wasn't seriously depressed and not in a dark stage about these things would be insane and do psychological damage.

I know, its hard and serious. Maybe instead of telling these people to lighten up we should give them support and level with ourselves.
