    This one hit very close to home. As someone challenged with episodes of depression which is very real and part of my brain chemistry, I must say that though I agree with much of the thoughts presented and that yes service to others certainly helps, when one has clinical depression it is more than "distraction." That being said, I do relate that in reframing one can be liberated rather than feeling in loss. I needed to hear that today! Every experience can be a lesson, and sometimes even a gift if we let it. I do my best to live in love each and every day. We have a choice; when we are doing whatever we are doing to view as from love. Even doing the dishes can be out of love :)  When a recent relationship ended changing from romantic to platonic I continued to share messages of hope as he is going through a very challenging time in his life. It was out of love and care. As for distraction as root of depression, I suppose that when I am not doing what is best for me, example working in a job that does not fulfill my heart, the depression is definitely more acute. Currently I am working my way back to more Cause Focused and heart centered Storytelling/Speaking engagements and it is helping my mind and heart because this is the work I am truly meant to do and have done. time for more of it! Hugs from my heart to yours, Kristin
