A New Perspective on Depression

What if depression wasn`t just something that prevented us from being all we could be… but rather something that slowed us down and stopped us when we are becoming overloaded.  I love this TED talk on the power of depression. I would love to hear others view and or reflections on the topic.

Happiness is great for the body but grief is the power of the mind. … the depressed person is not a failure they have taken on too much.
