This is a William Gibson quote.
Sorry if this comment was posted twice. It’s one of my favorite quotes and the original author should be given credit.
No worries, and thanks for clarifying 🙂
This quote is from author William Gibson. It’s a shame the original tweeter did not mention this, and did not even put it quotations. I do hope she was not trying to pass it off as her own.

Oh my God, that is the source of it? OMG, and I though I was the problem! LOL
LOL … I suspect many did !
Sounds a lot like something my doctor told me. “You’re not depressed if your life really does suck.”
Wise words, could be other causes than depression, grief is one for instance …
Yup, this quote should be stitched on a pillow, and EVERYONE should have this pillow in their home.
NOW, if you really DO suffer from depression, being surrounded by assholes and idiots won’t help with that. In fact, it has been proven to make it worse.
Assholes ain’t gonna help for sure
Yes, A** Holes can do that to you!
Ain’t that the truth…
