I have learned to never worry about that which you have no control over 

I have understood never judge something you know nothing about 

I have studied these things with a belief that I know nothing 

and I feel peace as to whatever comes and I have no fear 

I live a free life as a result as I am not making my mind a prisoner to fear 

Does a car have a choice where it goes when its done its life here ?  No ... it gets recycled , reborn as a toaster or a fridge magnet 

Thankfully, we have a bit more scope in that department

One thing i don't do is wonder what I'm doing when i die because on my death bed i will be wondering what I did with my life 

Live today

The only real cure for depression...

"... and therein lies the genius of my teacher, my mother's mother, who fulfilled herself completely by always forgetting herself in the joy of the welfare of all those around her. This is the only real cure for depression.
  It is the prescription that would come from any authentic spiritual physician. If you dwell upon yourself and your own private satisfactions, the first disappointment will throw you into a depression.
  If you can train to think more and more of the needs of all those around you, to work with people around you even if they are not always pleasant, you will be making yourself immune to depression, and you will be helping others to do the same."

THE PROPHET, Kahlil Gibran

Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal.

When you walk through a forest that has not been tamed and interfered with by man, you will see not only abundant life all around you, but you also encounter fallen trees and decaying trunks, rotting leaves and decomposing matter at every step.  Wherever you look, you will find death as well as life.

Upon closer scrutiny, however, you will discover that the decomposing tree trunk and rotting leaves not only give birth to new life, but are full of life themselves.  Microorganisms are at work. Molecules are rearranging themselves.  So death isn't to be found anywhere.  There is only the metamorphosis of life forms.
