“The implication is that people with depression (or likely to have depression) generally have a “greater empathic concern for others,” in the words of Megan Speer and Mauricio Delgado, psychology researchers from Rutgers University, who penned a related commentary accompanying the study. People with depression just feel bad when others get a shit deal.”

While the outcome seems convenient for me to say “oh wow I just care _so_ much” and that’s why I struggle with depression/anxiety – still interesting thoughts.
