Yeahs! I get that you are not talking about clinical depression. The point is to get out of your head, because, honestly, nothing personal, but the world doesn’t revolve around you! It doesn’t revolve around me, either! By helping others we bring our humanity forward. We become me more human once we realize our complete interdependence on each other & that there isn’t a “then” & an “us.” It is all “us”! If helping others doesn’t uplift you out of “that terrible squirrel cage of self,” that shitty self-pity that both numbs & diminishes your soul, perhaps being a part of the human race is not for you! Luckily, there are plenty of caves & mountain tops you can still hide out in & good luck to you! As for me & my family, I think we can do some good & get the fuck out of our ways at the same time!
