Dealing with Depression in College – Do It Nick Vujicic Way [Video]

If you’re finding it difficult to deal with depression in college or high school, if you think you’re the unfortunate one, and, worse, if you feel life is not worth living, then watch this video. Bit longish (nearly 15 minutes), but worth watching.

Nick Vujicic was born with tetra-Amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized with absence of all four limbs. As a child, he was teased and mocked at. He thought he had no future, no opportunity, and no hope. And he nearly attempted suicide at the age of ten.

Today, he is a sought-after speaker (30,000 standing invitations at the time of this talk), has addressed millions in 60+ countries, has met the who’s who, runs a non-profit and a for-profit venture, has written two books, has done a music video, has acted in a short film with an award winning performance, and has a spouse and a child.
