Rod, I think what we're talking about is a matter of degree, and I'll never quite know what degree of gossiping or griping you're talking about. It's not really news that if your life is founded on negativity, fault finding, and the petty judgement of others that it's not healthy. However, having someone to share your troubles with can be invaluable, literally life saving. Conversely, clinical depression can make it very difficult if not impossible for someone to see the positive in anything, and insisting that they do is like asking someone to think their way out of a broken leg.
I've never been much of a gossip, at work I was known as the anti-gossip. However that didn't prevent depression.
I think these things can be helpful suggestions, but I don't believe anything "set's in" I think what concentrating less on others faults can do is can do is free your mind to see the positive, and there's nothing wrong with that. Clinical depression however, requires much more complex solutions. Rod I simply don't think these are unusual solutions to a bad period in someone's life, I think they may be helpful for
someone who is lonely or finding social interaction difficult, or who has a case of the blues, but that's not to be confused with depression.
