Today we bring with you something a little different. Today, we share with you a video from a fantastic entertainer, and all round YouTube star, Anna Akana! If you’re not seen any of her videos, we do recommend that you check her stuff out. But do note, not all her videos are rated PG-13 or Umum, so viewer discretion is required. Rest assured, this one is though!
In this video that we’re sharing today, Anna talks about her own experience of depressionAnna talks about her own experience of depression. However, it’s not your typical experience of depression, but rather, feeling depressed when you feel that you don’t deserve to be.
The idea behind her video has to do with the fact that some of us may feel that we don’t deserve to be depressed because we have so many things going for us. We have a job, we’ve got a loving partner, a good family, and no ‘good reason’ for us to be depressed. But this is a myth, as triggers of depression can be varied and come from anywhere. It doesn’t matter if ‘you have everything’ and that ‘there’s really nothing for you to be depressed about’. If you’ve been feeling down for a long time, then chances are you are.
In any case, I think that Anna does a fantastic job explaining this to you, so clickety clack on the video and enjoy!
