When your country becomes an alien nation you suffer from alienation. That’s a given. So you withdraw. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you are, or need to be, depressed.
Depression is caused by rampant emotion, which is also encouraged by your alien nation, so consciously declining to emote makes all the difference.
Speak less, smile less, show caring less, care less. How you feel is your business.
Laugh any time you feel like it, and never when you are expected to.
If you’re superior, exhibit it. Be it.
Sod them all. Most of them don’t have a clue. But you do: you avidly read Secrets of Life.
Whatever you do, don’t do anti-depressants.
Your mouth will dry out, your eyes will go blurry, your dick will get limp and you’ll actually feel a whole lot worse.
The best and only cure for depression is not to care about it.
"Assuming it is not a lack of some drug etc. Then it is easy to fix, action is antidote for depression, combined with a focus on something other than ourselves.
Depression is the fastest growing problem in the Western world due to our focus on just ourselves as starvation is not chasing us or animals wishing to eat us. In fact, all the fundamental drivers that make our nature natural do not exist in the western world. I am in Bali at the moment where if you don't work you don't eat and, on the whole, you would struggle to find a happier bunch of people.
When life gets too easy then our mind turns on itself, looking for an illusory enemy!"
