Heart-to-Heart 7: Depression

"Why are you always so happy and positive?"
"I am happy because I am happy.  It's just the way it is."

"What do you do in order to be happy?"
"There is no such "something".  I am already living the life I have always wanted.  I feel blessed."

"I have never heard anyone that said so in my life."
