When depression hits you, simple pleasures can hurt. Things like a bright sunrise can be so annoying when once you loved to be able to see the wonder of the giant sphere seemingly rise out of the earth. Even if you are lucky enough to receive a Birthday cake from the few that really love you. That can be annoying too because you are not seeking any attention from anyone. However, we need to reflect and still be thankful of life’s simple pleasures.
There can even be the loss of interest in celebrating holidays even as we are deluged with gift giving ideas in all media. Much of everyone’s depression can center around never having enough money in our pockets to buy stuff. Places in the North East just got hit with a major storm that took their lives away meanwhile they are alive. All their possessions were washed out to sea as nature burst holes in their homes and in their hearts watching their favorite chair get ruined and loosing all their photographs. But we need to be thankful that we are alive to help someone else and help ourselves to get a new chair and take new pictures.
