Sunday's Comic Strips: Depression Is Not a Laughing Matter, but Perhaps These Comics Will Help


Thought for the Day: For Sunday's Comics, I chose 4 comics, 21 Comics That Capture The Frustrations Of Depression, by BuzzFeed Staff. Comics sometimes help us laugh at things that are not funny in order to help cope with them. These comics are more thought provoking than funny. If you know someone who is depressed, perhaps these comics will make you think twice & try to understand how hard it is to cope with depression. If you are suffering from depression, they may help you explain to others what it feels like to be you. Depression is an illness. It is not an "act" or something anyone chooses to be. If a friend is depressed, be there for them, listen, try to help them, & encourage them to see a therapist. You cannot fix it for them & they may need a professional to find their way out of the abyss.
