Mind/ Spirit: Depressed

in the absence of truthImage by gato-gato-gato via Flickr
“...Depression is not sobbing and crying and giving vent, it is plain and simple reduction of feeling...People who keep stiff upper lips find that it's damn hard to smile.”  -Judith Guest

We all feel it at times -- the trick is to know what brings you out of the "funky low" that is overtaking you.
For me it is forcing myself off the couch and to do something interactive or for someone else. Giving time, effort, or advice away will make my spirit lift.
Sometimes if I exercise or escape into a book or movie my perspective will change.

The most important thing to try is; prayer, and reading the Word.
Also do some "truth telling"
about what is really going on. Think "what is the truth about my present situation, and what can I do about it?"
Take the action that you can take at that current moment and then trust God that no matter what - you will trust Him to help you through any challenge, illness, betrayal or difficulty that you might have in the future. Present mindset is important for fighting off depression.
What does not work--- complaining, fit throwing, overeating, drinking alcohol excessively, and seeking attention from all the wrong places! I still really battle overeating when I have a "hopeless" day, and it never makes me feel better.

Hang in there and focus on getting busy on something that takes your attention away from yourself and onto someone in need or a passion you should be pursuing.  The best way to feel better is to stop being so self-absorbed!!!!

I am going to the store to stock up on food for meals and lunches this evening. Aiming to  focus on others' needs and do something constructive!! Maybe my attitude will turn from gray to colorful!!
