People are telling this guy it's OK to have deppresion because "science backs it"
This is irresponsible. You are just telling the guy if things are too tough he has an excuse and it's normal.
He needs to be smacked and forced to drive himself. Babying people doesn't work in the real world. Coddling will only turn this kid in to a loser.
While in some respect I can see validity in your point, it's too tainted you misconceptions.
1. I believe mental dieases do exist, and
2. Accepting you have one, is in no limitation, only your attitude towrds it, like anything else.
The reason why I won't outright disagree with you, is because of my personal experience.
I don't not think I would be depressed, if I had never tired to get help/leave my parent's abusive home.
That was I believe the worst decision I've ever made. My life and mind have been unstable since.
Nonetheless it won't stop me achieving my dreams.
I am not limited by it.
It is not an excuse.
