Dialogues From The Film 'closer'

DAN: ''Everybody wants to be happy''.

LARRY: ''Depressives don't. They want to be unhappy to confirm their depression. If they were happy, they couldn't be depressed anymore. They'd have to go out into the world and live, which can be depressing''.

No offense. I am not sure if this is true...

That's not true :/

technically both right and wrong at the same time in my point of view and depending on the point of view of the person and what they have been through.

right: people who has not yet been depressed or diagnosed with depression does not knows what it is like to be depressed so they think that depressed people are just creating a self-pity party so that people will come and comfort them which in reality is not and therefore leads to the wrong side of the point.

wrong: people who are depressives does not want to be unhappy. They are unhappy due to socials, clinical, and some other reasons i forgot due to my very bad memory card in my brain. Moving on. They did not choose to be depressed although they have the choice to be not depressed at the same time. I know i sound like double standard but just hear me out first. However, they are too deep in the darkness hole to come out of their holes to realize that they can just move on from it by letting it go. And as you and I both or the whole world should probably know that it is very hard to let go so therefore they stay in the holes and never come out until they feel loved and such.

So yeah. That's just my opinion and comment.
