It doesn’t matter who you are, we always have those days of depression. Some things don’t go the way we planned. Or it’s because we got into a fight with our loved ones or friends. Either way, these days are inevitable.
As humans, we have the capacity for many, many emotions and feelings, whether it’s happiness or sadness, depression is inevitable. It doesn’t necessarily have to be titled depression, but more so having a bad day, where you simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed.
People annoy you. You’re having a bad hair day. You’re not feeling good. And so on.
Also, we can be depressed in different realms of our lives as well. It doesn’t have to mean an overall depressed state, but maybe difficulties in your relationships or career. Life tends to not go the way we plan right? Always!
Typically, we’re dealt a miserable hand in most instances. But, are we going to sulk and continue to be depressed or do something about it? The one thing we can do is let go of our problems and negative outlook.
We must be willing to give ourselves to God. He is our inspiration. He gives us strength to overcome these random moments of mixed emotions. If you find yourself feeling like this, don’t use shopping or your hobbies to fix the problem. These moments of depressed hardships tend to influence us into not turning to Him and leaving Him behind. We think, “oh I’m too tired or too exhausted” is a good enough excuse to shy away.
Just as in a previous post, it’s a slippery slope and this is why depressed states can be detrimental not only to your character, but also your relationship with Jesus Christ. Instead, give yourself to God in these moments. He’s in control. It’s a test of your Faith, are you going to pass or fail?
