Hmm… I tend to think it’s the other way around. If we were less depressed we could just get over ourselves.

Or maybe it works in both directions… as we become less depressed we’re able to focus on the things about ourselves that we need to work on, which eases the depression…

I dunno!

I do remember, though, that when I was really depressed I couldn’t really think of other people as people. Not even my family. And as I got better it became possible to see them as real people. So maybe my selfishness had something to do with an inability to experience that there were people other than myself. It seems very strange when I look back at it.
