depressions is not a malfunfction. depression is a signal;

"you need to feel you belong, to feel your life has meaning and purpose, to feel that people see you and value you, that you have a future that makes sense"

most depression and anxiety is driven by faulty/negative core beliefs about ourselves , and most negative core beliefs are about not being good enough

This made me cry at the end.. When you said 'depression is a signal.' Connection is everything. Brene Brown said 'As human beings, we are hard wired for connection.' Thank you for this great talk and insight.
