    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    She's very brave and doing a brilliant thing to break the stigma x
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Interesting as I have a work collegue who I am close to who actually said "You cant be depressed, you're the happiest person I know. What does that say about the rest of us?"

    This is soooo true! Great article! My friend, who is psychologist, often says: but you seem happy and not depressed at all. Yeah right girl haha

    It's sad that a psychologist says that when they should know better - that it's a mask....

    I agree with Suzi. Is this the same psychologist who diagnosed you with anxiety and depression?

    Then I hope that she is able to learn how to talk to someone with mental illness and learns that people often put on a mask....

    The same happened to me. After my mom's death many think I look better, but in the matter of mental health - there is a struggle inside of me.

    No one would think I have depression or anxiety or ptsd as I hide it, very few get to see exactly how am feeling, a lot of people put a front on to hide it x
