Reblog: Existential Depression in Gifted Children

Reblogged. The quote I resonate with a lot is “Anger that is powerless evolves quickly into depression.”

I’m posting the first paragraph, read the rest on the article linked below:
“It has been my experience that gifted and talented persons are more likely to experience a type of depression referred to as existential depression. Although an episode of existential depression may be precipitated in anyone by a major loss or the threat of a loss which highlights the transient nature of life, persons of higher intellectual ability are more prone to experience existential depression spontaneously.”
