Is "Being" in this sentence necessary?
Pop music is one of the things helping us to overcome with being gloomy and glum.
Thank you!

    I think that this would sound better:

    "Pop music is one of the things helping us to overcome gloom."

    But yes, the word "being" is necessary in your original sentence. It would sound very wrong if you took it out. The word "with," on the other hand, isn't necessary.
