I think this article is very poignant and well-written. However, I do want to add that many of us have to deal with much worse issues than depression or low self-esteem or mid-life crises. One in 5 women will be raped, for example. Spousal abuse is prevalent. So is child abuse.

It is immensely harmful to survivors of these normal non-normalized traumas when we are left off the list of “bad s*** that happens in people’s lives.
