    I agree with what Jordan Peterson said about suicide, depression, antidepressants and ECT. I've tried both antidepressants and ECT. And they worked wonderfully. I'm not suicidal or even depressed anymore. But I have to keep taking my meds so it would keep me afloat from drowning in depression again.

    I would definitely recommend ECT if you are deeply depressed and intensely suicidal, it worked for me in coming out of it. It's not a guarantee, but death is final and there is no turning back. Might as well try all avenues. You only have one life. So why not make the most of it while your alive.

     
  2. I rather enjoy my depression.

    Hes a trained psychologist so theres some bias there. Hes also on them himself and always will be by his own admission. Theyre helpful but not the answer imo.

    He likes to go deep with the jungian stuff but I know he's a very good person and he really wants to help people to find their paths in life. I've seen a lot of folks on reddit about how his videos and books helped them to get better.

    Agreed, you can't be happy all the time. It would be like trying to enjoy summer without its counterpart, winter.

    He actually starts crying on stage somewhat frequently. I've seen him do it twice other than this, I think. For someone who's not an actor that's a bit of a rarity.

    I don't feel like it adds one whit to his credibility, but it might to his sincerity in his belief in his positions.

    Go clean your room = Banned

    And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter... and fight them until fitnah is no more, and religion is for Allah. = Hooray

    They weren't going to last forever. Sooner or later cleaning service marketing would catch up to his "clean your room" message and people were going to start outsourcing again.

    When I have a bit of phase I just block everyone out and the last thing I'd want from anyone is a pep talk. Prob not the best way of handling shit but suicide seems pretty inevitable, it grows more and more appealing

    Low-T detected. Also, ketamine has shown tremendous promise in permanently curing clinical depression

    He's suffered from depression himself, for years. Is normal.
