We had a great time at Short’s last night. Several of us got together and discussed the reality of hopelessness and suicide in our world and community. We were able to discusses causes, and share our own stories of experiences in our families and relationships.
Big thanks go to Andrew who was on baby duty.
One of the things that came up is the fact that we have so much stuff in our lives – wealth, possessions, etc, but we struggle with depression more than third world countries. Maybe we assume all the stuff we accumulate is going to make us happy, but turns out to be very disappointing.
What do you think? Is there a connection between materialism and depression?
If you’re in the Bellaire area, join us at 7pm next Thursday, Shorts Brewing Company, in downtown Bellaire!
