In today’s story, we discover one of the great things about Winnie the Pooh – Eeyore. Eeyore has depression. It’s quite clear. But he is never shamed, or left out, or shunned because of it. He’s never told he’s broken, or deficient. His friends just pitch in, and do what they can to make his life a little better. They don’t expect him to act in any certain way after they help him. He’s one of them, period.
The way Eeyore is depicted clearly shows that Milne knew what he was talking about, and is a magnificent way for those suffering with depression to be represented. If you know someone who really loves this book, or Eeyore in particular, there’s probably a lot more going on there. Please tread lightly.
And now, Winnie-the-Pooh, Part 3 of 4, by A. A. Milne.
