A Message From The Blog Master

Depression is a debilitating disease that millions of sufferers fight to overcome on a daily basis. I created this blog 4 years ago to share my personal experiences living with depression in an effort to manage my symptoms more effectively and help others in the same situation. It has become a, "life line' and brings me joy. My hope and prayer is this blog will bless and encourage you to never give up. I truly believe the contents of this website and the posts will help you better relate to your current situation and begin to make decisions that will catapult your life to next level. I have suffered from depression for longer than I will admit and have been treated for this debilitating condition for several years. I was anti-social and although I was able to maintain my employment, I was not "happy". Some days I felt somewhat "happy" while other days I felt as though I could see no real "purpose" for my life. I was just existing from day-to-day. As I sought treatment after years of prodding from my best friend, I started taking medication and although I have improved in many ways I am still impacted by depression on a daily basis. I want to share my experiences in an effort to help someone else with a similar story. I know there are many people who need help but are afraid to seek treatment. Please take the time to subscribe to this blog for daily insight and If there is something I can do for you send me an email; u_r_worth_it@yahoo.com.

Giving Up Is Never An Option

My Tears Are Temporary

My tears are temporary because I will not allow depression to get the best of me. My tears are temporary because I am fighting to overcome my circumstances. My tears are temporary because I am expecting a breakthrough any day now. My tears are temporary because even if sadness endures for the night, joy will come in the morning. My tears are temporary because I will not always feel as though I am in a dark place. I will soon walk into a place that is illuminated with a brilliant light that shines and beams; I can feel the reflection on my face that feels warm and peaceful. My tears are temporary because I know I will come out of this stronger. I know I am a winner because I refuse to quit. I am a winner because giving up is never an option. I am a winner because there are individuals waiting on me to succeed to empower them.

Every Setback is a Setup; For a Comeback

Every time you are faced with a perceived SETBACK; fired from a job, passed over for a promotion, failing health, sad news or a disappointment. You are actually being prepared for a major breakthrough in your life. All of these circumstances are common life experiences that shape who we are. Often times,they catapult us to the next level in life, the next step on our journey, the next rung on the ladder of success. We are being SETUP for success, aligned to overcome, seasoned to shine. The sweetest COMEBACK of all time has been forecast in your future, and it is headed your way and destined to appear. We must remain steadfast, true to our purpose and relentless in our quest. Hang in there, do not give up and continue doing what you do best.

Your Latter Will Be Greater Than The Rest

Sad Days Will Come

Everyone has sad days not just those who suffer from depression. However, depressed individuals experience feelings of sadness and despair quite often. There is not always a definitive reason for the feeling it just exists. One of the biggest lessons I learned about depression is you have to come out swinging everyday to defeat this enemy. You must make a conscious effort daily to overturn the prevalent symptoms. Stay in the fight and combat this disease with your head held high and put on the full armor of God. You have what it takes to claim victory over depression. It is really a matter of challenging your mindset and refusing to give in to the negative thoughts that attempt to permeate your mind and take up residence in your brain. It is a relentless and exhausting battle that tries to get the best of you. You must be strong and develop a daily strategy to knock depression down at every turn. You may suffer from a mental disease know as depression, but it does not define, nor represent who you are, what you can achieve or where your life is headed. GIVING UP IS NEVER AN OPTION

"Everything You Need To Succeed Lies Within You."

A Depressed mind believes it is always alone

An individual who suffers from depression often feels they are alone. Even though they believe their life can get better; they accept their reality. Deep down on the days when others around them feel they should be, β€œon top of the world,” and instead they are fighting to breathe, they are truly alone in their personal pain. One of their most compassionate and loving friends, will eventually grow frustrated because they fail to see any progress in their situation. Even this person only understands to a certain degree and really cannot fathom the feeling. Times like this really hurt the depressed individual because they know their progress is hit and miss; situational and seasonal; yet their fight is unrelenting and they want to be free from depression more than anything else. Anyone who listened to the daily struggle the depressed individual endures; would not be willing to walk one day in their shoes. It feels like you must always be on your, β€œA” game, you must be prepared to fight when you have no wind in your sail, to overcome and push through when you are mentally and physically exhausted. Your survival depends on it, but even given that it seems to be an insurmountable battle. A great deal of being depressed is how the individual feels about circumstances, comments, and their ability to cope with day-to-day happenings. The individual who suffers from depression has the condition on their mind when they awaken in the morning and when they lay their head on their pillow at night. They really need to have their thinking reprogrammed. It is during their darkest hour, when they feel like giving up and they literally feel alone. They do not want to share with their friends how they really feel every day; because they are afraid their friendship with feel like a burden to them; they often avoid communication when they are experiencing a downward spiral. This is probably the worst time for them not to communicate because they are alone with their thoughts. If you sense this in a loved one; force the communication and help them push through the pain of feeling all alone. It is really a cry for help and just communicating a simple message may be all they need to get back in the game. GIVING UP IS NEVER AN OPTION
