I guess that as long as we have purpose and meaning in life we are able to have a fulfilling existence.

But maybe in general our old values and way of living got furiously replaced by values that make no sense to us.

Faith is certainly a sensitive matter. Science really shook the ground in which society was based. Maybe people didn't question much things and just had a simpler life way back.

I really believe depression may vanish as soon as an individual figures out a meaningful way of living his life. As John Sarno may wisely say, depression is a symptom, a way for our body telling us that something is not right. Medication can't fix that. It will only blunt people's emotions and stop symptoms. It works, but it will also blunt other aspects of the same person. A human losing all it's natural psychic beauty.

Then I know people that frantically changes medications trying to control symptoms. It's kinda crazy, when you see from this perspective, isn't it?

Really, I'm depressed with life. I'm healthy and mentally fine, but I find the world thoroughly depressing right now.
