Filipinos as Among the Happiest but Most Depressed

It is no unusual news that we, Filipinos, are one of the happiest because in spite of problems, we seem to take on hope and manage to smile and fool or kid around.

But, I came across this unfortunate news in a national news that Filipinos are the most depressed individuals in Asia which can be attributed to hard economy, family separation through deaths or otherwise, unemployment, financial constraints among others.

We may feign our depression through our happy smiles but that alone cannot really eliminate problems that are masked by lip muscle twist. This is a sad thought but a hard fact.
