I was walking a dog from the dog rescue the other day when I had a realization: why college students are so prone to depression.
Let me explain.
- You have skills in college, you're just not actively practicing them.
- By "actively practicing", I mean making money from them.
- When you don't get to practice your skills for money, you have no sense of the worth of your skills.
- For four years, you have no idea how valuable your skills are to the world because no one is paying you.
- With no sense of self-value, many college students fall into depression because they feel worthless.
I'm sure there are other factors that contribute, but I believe this is a big reason why some college students (and some of my friends) have questioned their self-worth.
What do you think?
