Some human persons wake up in the morning facing a significant probability of becoming happiness challenged.  The most severe risk-factor is using the term "depressed" to describe themselves to themselves.  If hey direct such negative energies against their self-esteem, the damage is done, and they are over the edge.  Remember to post a note on your right eye-lid:  "I will never say to myself that I am depressed!"  That done, you will face each day afresh and with new-found vigor.  Such is the Power of Positive Thinking! Perception = Reality. Be your own Impression Manager!

Ah!  But what if you read the note!  You wil see That Word!!

OK. Just write on the note:  Happiness Is In The Eye Of The Beholder.
