Doing Something Nice for Someone Else is the Key To Happiness
Have you ever seen those depression commercials where they say that depression is a physical thing not a mental thing, and at

the end of the commercial when they say “depression hurts?” In my opinion I don’t really believe that. I believe that doing something

for some one else is a good way of getting rid of depression. I’m not saying that the doctors are wrong. They could be right and.

I’m only 14 and they have a doctors degree so I can’t real say any thing about the “scientific facts.” But through my own personal

experiences I think I’m right. For example on October 30, 2010 our church was hosting a special event called “Halleluiah Night” and

my mom and other women were in charge of the kids while I was upstairs handling the audio situation with all the presentations

and specials. After I finished with that I went down stairs to help with the kids but it turns out that they were just cleaning up. So I

decided to help out with the cleaning. At the end of the “Halleluiah Night” I crabbed some cheese, crackers, and some tea and

headed out and while I was in the car I was rocking out to some song and I felt pretty good. So in my experiences you don’t have

to talk all of those medications.
