Living Under a Shadow of Sadness & Hopelessness?
ALONE IN THE DARK
There is a shadow coloring all of your life, a negative lens through which everything looks empty, uninteresting and hopeless.
Everyone feels a bit low from time to time, but this is different. Somehow you find yourself feeling down almost all the time and it’s affecting your work, your relationships, everything.
WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE ...
A loss of interest in life, little ambition, zero motivation: these are your companions now. Fatigue & loss of energy, not being able to concentrate or make decisions, insomnia or excessive sleeping, a loss of appetite or overeating … they’re here too. And thoughts of suicide may sometimes be present as well.
The bottom line is that Depression is one of the most miserable human experiences there is in terms of suffering. But Daren knows this firsthand, because he’s been there.
Daren suffered a major depression complete with suicidal thoughts in his 20’s following the death of his father. Of that experience Daren says, “The darkness is darker than you ever knew was possible, and the loneliness and aloneness is heart-wrenching. You can’t connect to anyone.”
But there is hope, there is healing. In fact, Depression is considered to be very treatable.
GRAB MY HAND
Depression feels like you’re walking upstream waist-deep, and the force of the water is so exhausting you just want to lie down and let the current take you wherever it wants.
But healing is about simply grabbing the hand of your counselor, letting them lock arms with you, and then walking upstream together until you gain some momentum and it’s not such a strenuous effort anymore.
