I am intrigued by this perspective on depression. I believe I have personally found it to be true and have also observed it in others. I have a little card on a bulletin board in my office that reads: “People with mental illness enrich our lives.” So true.
- "I have one life and one chance to make it count for something . . . I'm free to choose what that something is, and the something I've chosen is my faith. Now, my faith goes beyond theology and religion and requires considerable work and effort. My faith demands -- this is not optional -- my faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference." - Jimmy Carter
