I'm in the midst of a three year depression stemming from the simultaneous layoff as well as a disastrous custody battle. I lost both. I wish I could say it gets better, but I've no real evidence of that.
I'm not going to get into my own personal history regarding depression but I did recently see a scene in a British TV show which made me consider the subject.
One of the main characters encountered a woman who was about to jump off the roof of a tall building.
It turns out that it was the first anniversary of her husband dying in front of her after a car accident.
He asked why she had waited a year to jump.
She answered; "Because everyone kept telling me it gets better. Well, you tell me. Does it?"
He didn't know what to say, and I thought for a bit how I might respond in such a situation.
In the end I decided that I might say; "I don't know. No-one can tell you that, but I can tell you that it doesn't get better if you jump".
For whatever it's worth.
