how do you usually overcome depression? depression is caused by the life's demands and problems in life. those that drains our energy and saps our strength. it has really great impact to ones life. it involves physical and emotional. me when i am depressed, i would go somewhere and burst out int tears. i would bring my Bible and look at some truths about God and His goodness to my life. and if convicted, i would go to other persons as well, but somehow they dont understand. so being with God is usually the best resolution in overcoming depression... what about you? how do you overcome depression?

I am sorry to see you going through that. I am not having that kind of problem myself. But anyway just think of the consolation that you get from being like that, you somehow is able to connect with God in some ways. Maybe that is His real purpose why he gave you that to be able to connect with Him more often than not.

you are really corect there my friend. somehow this problem arise and reminds me of the presence of God. this has really strengthened my relationship with Him. though i just couldnt bear the pain on my own, but by His grace alone. hope that when you will experience the same or similar experience that i did, you will also connect to the Lord. or not just in sad moments but also in happy moments..

Well I just hope that God would not resort to that i really do not know what I would do if I were in your case. Maybe God gives each their own set of problems to settle in their own capacity. In my case, I have my own way perhaps that pleases Him already.
