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!!
