Agony of Depression
SOMETHING’S OFF, BUT YOU CAN’T QUITE PUT YOUR FINGER ON WHAT.
Throughout your life, you’ve endured times when you’ve been burdened by sadness and hopelessness – when moving through your days feels like walking through quicksand and every step is a struggle.
But lately, these difficult periods are getting longer; they’ve gone from two weeks to two months. You’re fighting and failing to get out of bed after ten hours of sleep.
Your worries are way too big, and attempting to do the simplest tasks makes you jittery and anxious.
Your body aches for no apparent reason, and fun has “left the building.” You don’t even roller-skate anymore, and that was your favorite!
LIVING LIFE IN BLACK AND WHITE.
“Is this depression?” you’ve wondered multiple times. “No,” you answer, with a hint of desperation, “That’s just for weak people, right?”
Besides, you still go to work and take care of your responsibilities – kind of.
But whatever it is, something’s not right and has to change. Living this gray, colorless existence can’t be the extent of what your future holds.
YOU CAN’T WISH OR PRAY IT AWAY.
Depression can’t be prayed away. Prayer is powerful, there’s no doubt about that. But prayer doesn’t take the place of therapy. Prayer is the weapon; therapy is the strategy.
There’s also a misconception that you just need to toughen up or power through to relieve depression. That only leads to frustration and disappointment because depression doesn’t work that way. It’s not a matter of will or strength.
You need science-based tools like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy to help you understand what’s causing your sadness – whether it’s childhood trauma, a toxic relationship, or an imbalance in your body’s chemicals.
