    Look up Alan Watts on YouTube, he did lectures on Buddhism long ago, its ancient material but his points of view on purpose in life / death / suffering have changed my life.

    Some of the videos have psychedelic pictures, but it's not just hippy non sense, it's how to view life logically and objectively rather than fighting your built in mental barriers trained and it's so relevant to people suffering anxiety or depression!

    Yes definitely ! I also feel like I'm one in a million and there's no one else like me and there's no one who could ever understand me. These feelings are not helped at all by the fact tht I have been a constant nuisance all through my life because of my bipolar illness. I am most happy staying by myself which other people would see as a mental aberration but which I see as my right and my preference.
