When we’re down and depressed and somebody tells us to cheer up, they mean well, but they just don’t get it.

I don’t think anybody wants to be down and depressed.

I don’t want to be down and depressed. I don’t try to be down and depressed. I don’t like being down and depressed.

I’d most certainly rather be happy, laughing, and smiling.

But being down and depressed is a part of my life. It’s a part of life. It’s ok to be down and depressed.

Just don’t accept it. Keep scratching and clawing for happiness.
