Patient discussion about economics

Q. how do you lift your spirit during those tough days of economic depression?

Q. how come depression became so common??? is it because the great economic crises ...? because i get the feeling that it has been like that for a while ...

Deaths, accidents, tragedies, illnesses, losses, being a victim of crimes or injustices, war, seeing people die, witnessing horrible things... that list can go on and on. We humans are fragile, have limitations, and we break.
