Honestly, if you’ve never had depression or a mental illness, I don’t want to hear your opinion about it. There are too many misconceptions about depression in society, especially conservative societies.
I don’t think I give my parents enough credit for having lived through so much change in their lifetimes. I mean, in the last hundred years (or so) almost every aspect of our lives has changed. Much of it happened in the last sixty years. It’s a whole new world for my parents.
