Beautiful analysis of Depression!!

Depression is defined by google as “a mental state characterized by a pessimistic sense of inadequacy and a despondent lack of activity

These days it is so common to hear of people saying “I am feeling depressed”!

I was listening to the words of Sri Sri Ravishankar once. In him, I find, an inspiring leader and a treasure of wisdom. Something he said, made a lot of sense to me. He said

Have you ever known a poor man being depressed? Depression is a luxury that only those people enjoy who have everything in life. Someone who doesnt know where his next meal is coming from, doesnt really have the “time” nor the “energy” to be depressed. He is too busy arranging for his square meals!!

History repeated itself. After a crackling performance, Sachin had set the foundations for a momentous victory for India… But… as soon as he got out, the rest of the cricketers fell like a pack of cards and we lost by a very thin margin. The worst part was the run out of Praveen Kumar when we had 5 runs to make out of 2 balls!!

Nonetheless, it was really sad to lose! Noobie went to bed with a very heavy heart and a disgust “Why cudnt have Sachin stayed a little longer”!!! Despite my dislike, I felt bad at the loss too! 😦
