When Depression Takes Over

I admit it, once or twice I would succumb to the lure of just letting it all go and crying my eyeballs out or just shouting out to the world to release all stresses and even entertaining the notion of ending my own life, but those are just moments of weaknesses, moments when everything just seems to toll so heavily on me and I find myself succumbing to the weakness simply because there is no other way to release the stress lest I do want it to boil down to me just finally ending it all...

I will say that it is but human to cry, get frustrated and all those but what is important that I have learned to jump back in the water after I have released all the pent up energy I keep just below the water so to speak, I am not arrogant enough to say that I can carry it all, no, I can't and I am weak and I give in, if I will only rely on myself, I am slowly learning to lean on a higher being, learning to take stock of everything and just begin to rely more on God and the truth that He wants to take care of me and prosper me and everything they have been telling... I know God is there... is here and is willing to help me get through all my troubles....

Problem Overwhelming?

I heard from a friend that another friend, although not so close to me, had taken her life...

I was so saddened by this, not exactly because of the lost life, I barely knew her, if I would be completely honest but because, she felt she had to end her life to end her problems...

It never really occurred to me to end my life because of my problems, yes, I would, say that I want to die or something to that effect when I feel like my problems overwhelm but I never take that seriously, never thought to actually do it... so it is sad for me to realize that indeed some people deem it necessary to kill themselves in order to get away from their problems...

Life is so precious... I pray that one day people who face overwhelming problems will realize that taking their lives is not the answer, that they can turn to God, and see their problems solved if only they will have faith, if only they will believe that God is here, willing to help, willing to prosper, willing to heal... we need only ask...

Positivity entails believing, having faith and keeping that faith no matter what..

Remember that GOD IS BIGGER THAN OUR PROBLEMS.

No matter how difficult the situation may be, keep in mind that God is all powerful and HE IS ABLE!

Continue Being Grateful

Gratitude is not an easy attitude to adapt.

Sometimes our pride gets in the way of being thankful, thinking that everything we have, we owe to no one, well perhaps because we do work hard to attain them.

But if there's one thing I learned is that, nothing we ever have is owed only to us. Keep in mind that there is a higher being that allows us the life we breath each day we keep our eyes open, and beginning with that, we should begin to be thankful and realize that we owe everything to a higher being other than ourselves.

Regardless of what your beliefs might be, we all acknowledge that there is an eternal God that sustains the life we have, so in that sense, we should realize that everything we do, we owe to that one eternal God.  And thus each day we should learn to thank Him for everything we are enjoying.

Be thankful that...

you have food on the table and you eat 3 or even more times a day, others doesn't eat at all...

you have a roof over your head, others live in tents while others yet sleep on the cold pavement...

you are healthy and are able to work and do all that needs to be done each day...

you have people who love you, others have been forgotten by their family

you are in front of the computer, learning and discovering.. being able to enjoy technology while others don't even have electricity....


Learn to be grateful each day and you will soon learn there are more to be grateful for, for a grateful heart is a blessed heart and a blessed heart is open to all other blessings to flow in...
