My wife and I have always agreed on one thing - money ain't everything and it can't buy happiness. Do you like farming? I would guess you do since you're still at it.
I'm also 32. I was raised on a farm, but we sold out in '85 and now all the ground is cash rented to the neighbors. I would love to farm it, but getting the money to start out just isn't a reality.
I can hear your depression in your post, and I see it on the faces of my neighbors, who are my best friends. There's no doubt times are tough, but they are tough for everyone.
Hang in there and things WILL get better. Maybe not this year, but it will happen. I've always found when things were bad, if I went to church on a regular basis, it always got better. Good luck to you.
