People often try to tell us how we "should" feel. Well gee, Mom, or whoever, I DON'T feel that way. Imagine that! If the other person thinks about it, perhaps they should be asking, "why doesn't he or she feel the way I would expect"? Sometimes other people get fixed on their own agenda and forget to think about why WE might feel some certain way or other. All they see is their own agenda. It's not doing us a favor to tell us how we "should" feel. BTW, do you know why you are depressed? That would be a good start toward solving a problem that you may end up being the Chief Solver of.
