Is depression something you can “shake off?”
I saw a quote elsewhere that said:
“Paul Walker once said: Someone is in the hospital right now begging God for opportunities you have. Don’t you dare go to bed depressed. Count your blessings & shake it off.”
This sparked a very heated debate on whether you can “shake off” depression or not.
Some people were saying it is all in your head, and others were saying that you can’t just shake it off and people don’t understand what it’s like.
What do you think?
