Tossed on the waves of our emotions, we forget that we are the sea.
It seemed like this was one big Prozac nation, one big mess of malaise. Perhaps the next time half a million people gather for a protest march on the White House green it will not be for abortion rights or gay liberation, but because we're all so bummed out.
From Prozac Nation
This is my depressed stance. When you're depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand. The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you'll start to feel better. If you're going to get any joy out of being depressed, you've got to stand like this.
~Charlie Brown (Charles Schulz)
You largely constructed your depression. It wasn't given to you. Therefore, you can deconstruct it.
