1 Thing About Misery That Will Never Change

If you’ve ever driven down the highway and wondered why we blast holes in mountains to pave roads;

If you’ve ever thought of a city as an environmentally out-of-place center of pollution;

If you’ve ever longed for something more meaningful than working forty hours a week for someone else;

Then you might think that depression is modern condition, caused by the advances of industrialism and technology, some time in the last 200 years or so.

Depression has been cataloged, treated, and acknowledged for as long as we can trace, from the times of Aristotle, Plato, Hippocrates, and the ancient Aztecs.

In fact the theories and treatments given were often eerily similar to our modern explanations.

It’s not your job that causes you to be miserable; it’s the fact that you are human, and therefore will always be susceptible to misery.

But, you can change your job. (Or, lots of other things in your life.)
