“The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality.”
This week I wish to introduce you to Andrew Solomon. A writer on politics, culture and psychology, he is perhaps best known for his 2001 book The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression. He has lectured widely on depression and his own experiences of it, a fine example of which I’ve found for you below. If this isn’t enough to inspire some thoughts in you this Thursday, you probably clicked on the wrong link and ended up here by accident. Hey, stick around anyway.
Somehow telling you to enjoy this one wouldn’t feel entirely appropriate, so instead I’ll just ask you... to make sure you’re sitting comfortably.
