This phenomenon is illogical and therefore very dangerous, for what it does is it makes everyone believe that sadness (a NATURAL emotion) has become a treatable illness, that sadness and hardship is something we are not meant to face as human beings. The problem is that sadness and hardship (along with the other emotions) are what make us human in the first place. We are slowly becoming desensitized, losing our humanity and falling deeper into consumerism, for if sadness is cancelled out, then surely happiness becomes a mere state of being, if you understand what I mean!?

What I'm trying to say is that we need to watch the world around us, be observant and realize that thinking outside the box is now more important than ever, because the box is no longer a box...It's been renovated, upgraded with glass facades and other pretty stuff like aircons and artificial grass and Google adverts, and now we dont even know its a box. Being in your own world now means being in Nike's world, or Adidas' or Reebok's or whatever. It's ok to be a sad panda you know, being sad makes us realize there are things we need to change. I for one know that fighting depression and attempting to absorb whatever life throws at you most definitely makes you a stronger person, and who knows you might be the next Abe Lincoln (who openly expressed his battle with depression).
