There's new evidence that depression is not just a disorder of the mind.
Verified by Psychology Today
I believe it's simply that people have become more selfish, self involved, and self gratuitous. We live in a world of immediacy and everything involves getting what we want. As a society loses its common values we no longer see each other as assets for survival but threats to our survival. We start to lose our basic humanity. It worries me where our lack of compassion will take us. I'm guessing more wars, more racism, more greed. My only desire is that we learn to value each other and learn from our differences experiences. This blaming the victim is just plain arrogance and narcissism. Ultimately, the root of all evil in the world is fear. If only we could individually learn how to conquer our fears and insecurities the world would be a much better place.
