Today I want to talk about depression. I have personally struggled with it. I have been talking to a lot of people about it recently and realized how common depression really is. The number one thing you need to remember is that you need REACH OUT. Tell your parents, grandparents, a counselor, etc. Anyone you feel comfortable with. Sometimes I send a quick text to my parents to give them an update on how I’m doing.
The next thing is you need to find friends that you can relate to. I have been to a lot of camps this summer. At two of them I made some new friends that have suffered from and are working through the same things I am. Having a good support network is really important.
The last tip I want to give you is a great resource that I have used when I had nothing else left. Below is a link to my church website. They have so many great resources on depression. I hope that you will be able to find true healing. Always remember that God loves you and he is always there. All you have to do is cry out to him and say: “I don’t have anything left to give, please carry my burden.” Sometimes he doesn’t answer your prayer exactly the way you want but he knows what he is doing and it will turn out for the best.😉
