Depression is something to be taken very seriously. Some people battle it their whole lives while others have to deal with it long-term, and some seasonally, but it is not the same as feeling sad for a bit. It concerns me even more deeply that this is a best selling book and people who read this may begin to believe that depression is an act or a choice or a 'story' as the author would call it. Our society truly does not understand this condition or support people who are suffering with it.
There are over 50,000+ books on Amazon helping people who have depression. This is not one of them. I absolutely do not recommend reading this book if you struggle with depression. I also do not recommend it in general as I gleaned nothing useful from the first half of the book. I'd return this if I could.
Here is the exact quote from Chapter 18 (please excuse any minor errors, as I was transcribing from an audiobook): “Become aware of what you are gaining from your stories. We pretty much don’t ever do anything that we don’t benefit from in some way... If you are perpetuating something dismal in your life because of some dopey story, there is definitely something about it that you are getting off on. Let’s say, for example, that your story is that you’re depressed. Chances are pretty good that even though it feels awful, when you feel awful you don’t have to work hard, or do the laundry, or go to the gym. It also feels very familiar and cozy and comfortable. It gets you attention. People come in and check on you and sometimes bring food. It gives you something to talk about. It allows you to not try too hard or move forward and face possible failure. It lets you drink beer for breakfast.”
I disagreed with a lot of Ms. Sincero’s ideas in the book, but I pretty much live my life by the “to each, his own” philosophy. I could have even overlooked the advice to go into debt to manifest your reality, but I could not in good conscience, let this go without trying to make others aware. Depression is a serious issue and to treat it otherwise is irresponsible and dangerous.
One year ago I read this book and it helped change my life. Who knew all I had to do was change my thoughts and everything would fall into place!
It made me kick my healthy lifestyle and I've lost 85 pounds in one year.

World a bit better and looking at things from a different perspective? Forget it.
I bought this book as recommended on a few pinterest boards as 'essential for all 20 somethings to read'... I'm still not clear on why or how it is essential.
Maybe I will attempt to read it again in the future, but for now this book is not for me.
