The world is crazy. I'd say being normal is kind of having slight hypomania, because no one would survive seeing everything as it really is.
Yeah true. I can see what you mean.

Melancholy has a awful habit of screwing up your perceptions however in this example Cobain's perception at the least seems to have a few technology behind it. Psychologists speak about depressive realism the concept that depressed humans have removed the rose-colored glasses everybody else wears. In the event that they take a look at the world and notice awful matters everywhere it is due to the fact the sector is an ugly area.
