You Are Not Alone!
Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy has experienced depression too. He says, “The hardest thing about depression is that it is addictive. It begins to feel uncomfortable not to be depressed. You feel guilty for feeling happy”. Wentz also said that what helped him beat depression was finding the right person to speak to, such as a friend, therapist, or doctor.
