Depression comes from thinking about what you don’t have and what is wrong witht the world!
Let’s focus on what we have more please.

I just saw the deleted tweet from Yemi Alade , depression is not a function of you focusing on what you don’t have, and know you can’t make yourself depressed. If you’re coping with depression please speak to your mental health care provider or send a dm

I doubt that’s only what causes depression though, alot comes from childhood trauma and repressed emotion

yemi alade’s tweet is what depression really is about. act woke and deny it but that’s your problem, depression comes when you “LACK” and worry about it too much.. lack of love? lack of money? no family? dead relatives? bad grades? no rest? could be lack of anything
Our realities differ Sha.
Maybe Yemi Alade was once depressed because she focused on the things she lacked and now she knows better.
What she may not know is that Depression is a subject on its own. Away from what you have or have not.
