Now I can't wait to go home and look at this again, but with my daughter.


Great article! Thanks for sharing. I do a lot of inner searching on guilt and shame. Part of healing.
I'm sharing a great Ted talk on shame here, if anyone is interested πŸ™‚

Yes it is.Thank you. ☺


A friend or two may have sent me this when I was really struggling with situational depression after my divorce. I took a screen shot of the summary and referenced it for weeks. It's been a while since I've actively employed at least two of them. Thank you so much for the reminder!


Gratitude is the right attitude - it's a hell of a platitude!

Seriously, I think it helps me a lot. But what about the poor souls who genuinely have nothing to be grateful for? I think these are the people who turn to drink and/or drugs to try to fill an empty hole in their souls. I think they are looked on as collateral damage in an unfair world.

I realise that. My point is about those who never found anything and quit searching.

I think you need to read my post again. I never spoke about every sad person. I don't think the problem many have with not finding things to be grateful for is down to a lack of interpretation skills. It's down to a lack of things to be grateful for. As for your theory of neurology, I think it has more to do with a lack of meaning in life than chemical imbalance.
