What right do we have to be depressed?

With those with access to abundance–technology, food and clean water, a warm bed–how does anyone have the right to be depressed?

And I think the answer lies in the fact that while prosperity can pull us out of poverty, it doesn’t fulfill us.

Because money is a story. It is a number on a screen. It is easy to seduce ourselves into thinking that when the digital number goes up our level of happiness will rise with it.

Because the never-ending cycle of accumulation is actually never-ending.

Because wants can’t replace what we really need.

I think what’s scarce going forward is connection. It is connecting with a product, good, service, cause, or most importantly, another human that we are desperately seeking to make.
