Before you diagnose yourself with depression low self-esteem, first make sure that you are not, in fact, just surrounded by assholes.” William Gibson
We spend so much time looking inward – which is good, and self-diagnosing – which isn't always but can, on occasion, be good that all too often we forget to just open our eyes and ears to the things we are surrounding ourselves with. Is some, or most, of your pain simply being caused by assholes around you? Are the assholes on TV and the assholes around your dinner table getting too much air time? If you’re depressed or living a far lesser version of yourself, tune in to the voices around you. Maybe it’s time to change the station and find a new table to eat at.
