Here are habits to know if you're a creative person.

http://tickledbylife.com/index.php/16-habits-of-highly-creative-people/

I know that there creative people here like writers, artists, photographers, musicians. You creative people have these original ideas, great ideas that have the ability to entertain and teach the masses.

Unfortunately, in this society of ours, we kill creativity. Even schools kill creativity. We are taught to be dumb, to follow trends to become consumers, and to work for money and fame. Only a few people are creative.

Now, those creative people are endangered. There's not to much of them. What's even more disturning, is that certain creative people are depressed, they have problems. They have suicidal thoughts.

In order to cope with their harsh lives, they turn to that which they think will save them medication. This isn't good at all. Medication has the ability to make you happy. But it can take away your creativity.

Of course, if you don't take your medication, you will feel these problems like depression. That's what you'll say to me. You say I need this medication, rapidfox1, to be better. If your not creative or if you don't to be creative. I understand. You want to be happy. Though, I don't trust the medication. You shouldn't trust it either. I think it does something to you.

But you are a creative person, then don't take it. Your illness is the dark leaf covered forest floor crawling with all sorts of nasty looking animals like salmanders and wood lice but your creativity is a white trillium that has bloomed out.

If only I didn't become depressed afterwards... :sigh

Like many things, creativity is genetic. Either you're creative or you're not.
