The Opposite of Depression Is Not Happiness

This is an interesting article.  The opposite to depression is resilience.  Yes, I agree.  We can build resilience by:  getting enough sleep, exercising, eating sensibly,  being curious and learning,  and by connecting with others and a purpose.  Standard stuff, the trick is to do it and be gentle with ourselves as we do.

My heroes struggled:  Winston Churchill,  John Kerwin, and, I suspect, Edmund Hillary  struggled at times.  We all do.
