If we start ignoring negative thoughts and people we can live better. Depression is cured by watching motivational videos and photos. Make your habit to see motivational things rather than ones which cause hopelessness. Listen to the interviews of most successful persons, so that you would be able to know they also have suffered in their lives.


>>Take responsibilities
