ON BEING A REAL PERSON

asking the impossible. To take low moods too seriously, instead of saying, This also will pass, is to confer on them an obsessive power they need not have.
A second suggestion is of daily importance: We can identify ourselves not with our worse but with our better moods. The ego, the central "I," can choose this and not that mood as representing the real self; it can identify itself with hopefulness rather than disheartenment, with good will rather than rancor.
All slaves of depression identify their real selves with their low moods. Not only do they have cellars in their emotional houses, as everybody does, but they live there. While each of us has depressed hours, none of us needs to be a depressed person.
This leads to a third suggestion. When depression comes, tackle yourself and do not merely blame circumstance.
Depressed persons can make depression out of any circumstances whatsoever. This truth is especially pertinent in a tragic era when the world is upset by catastrophic events. Not to be depressed by present calamities would reveal an insensitive spirit. Nevertheless, there are many today who blame their emotional disorganization on the sad estate of the world, whereas their real problem is within themselves.
The fourth suggestion: Remember others. Emotions are contagious. One depressed person can infect a whole household and become a pest even to comparative strangers. Remember Ian Maclaren's admonition, "Let us be kind to one another for most of us are fighting a hard battle." Good cheer and courage are among the most important kindnesses that we can show.
The fifth suggestion calls for deep resources of character: Remember that some tasks are so important that they must be gone through with whether we are depressed or not. Strong personalities commonly solve the problem of their despondency not by eliminating but by sidetracking it. They have work to do, a purpose to fulfill, and to that, whether or not they feel dejected, the main trunk line of their lives belongs.
