Obviously you have never felt depression.
It may seem easy to find something to live for for you, but with real depression you haven't got the strength or will to look even though it maybe right in front of you.
My partner summed it up when trying to tell me how she was feelin because I could understand why the rational voice in your head does not help her rationalise things to feel better.
But in her head the other voice is saying "yeah good idea jump, because your useless, ugly, no one would care (all those insecurities that unfortunately you cant hide from). How can someone be expected to look for something if they haven't got the strength to get out of bed to have a piss.....?
im sincerely happy that you are happy in your life, because too many people aren't and maybe by going through it my eyes are opened to what I didn't want to see or didn't really care.
