First, we all face up to depression without exception.

The only difference is in how we deal with it, and there are only three ways.

The most popular way is through elevated levels of cynicism, skepticism, and disdain. That approach gives us a temporary sense of superiority and allows us to feel a little better about ourselves.

For some, drugs are effective as long as they remember to keep taking them.

The third way to deal with depression is to put in your earbuds, dial up a happy tune, and dance the night away.

I prefer the latter.
