This is so true! I can't stand when I'm depressed and people tell me, other people have it worse than me so I shouldn't be depressed. First, if I had the option to not be depressed then I would exercise that option! I don't choose when I'm going to be depressed! Who would choose depression? No one! Second, it is extremely insensitive to say this to someone who is dealing with depression! Depression is already painful enough without people saying insensitive things. Saying this or something along these lines to someone infers that their depression is a choice!
