X: And it was then I realized that I resent you, I resent people for being depressed; for not taking control of their lives or not even trying or not trying as hard as I would like them to. Lurking beneath this was the idea of total freedom and responsibility. How could I reduce the complex lives of people to a fuckin' existential choice of authenticity vs inauthenticity? Is blaming someone for being depressed not like blaming someone for being poor? The condition can be changed with effort, but you can't really blame them for it, in most of the cases. But that's what I was doing, without even being aware of it.
