Depression is like a dragon,
It attacks when we are weakest and unsure of ourselves (between the age of 15 -22…) and the person may survive.
But the real trick is to learn to tame the dragon,
keep it from attacking,
and after decades of work, a person may become like a wizard, and prevent the next onslaught.
Although no one really knows what triggers the dragon to attack…
And so superstitions are built, things we ought to do to keep it away.
Meanwhile, others that are unaffected and have no experience with them don’t believe these dragons even exist.
These wizards may take fish oils, herbs, medications, exercise, follow rituals and have talismans…
a person hopes… and others pray, just keep the dragon away another day…
