The ancient distinction ...

... between depression and despair: Kierkegaard on the Couch. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

... despair is not a feeling, but an attitude, a posture towards ourselves.

Glad to see the tagline mentions Gordo's boxing expertise. If want to have a good time, spend 20 minutes on the phone with Gordon Marino.
