    I've had depression for almost a month

    but I'm slowly coming out of it. I'm forcing to go out when I would rather stay home. I'm trying to socialize more even though I like being by myself. And you know what,I feel better...I'm not really 'happy' yet but I'm not crying myself to sleep anymore.

    I firmly believe that everyone has a setpoint for things like self value, self esteem and indirectly also to the level of happiness you have. Regardless of the situation you need some sort of satisfication in life otherwise you would just keep over and die. Perspective is...
