It’s weird being depressed. You don’t feel like doing anything that’s fun or interesting or in any way good for you. You just want to be alone with your thoughts, and most of those thoughts are about how awful things are. Depression is really frustrating – you know you need to lighten up, you just can’t figure out how. If you haven’t been through it, it’s hard to understand.
Maybe I’ve been gradually getting depressed without realizing it. if so, that means I need to take some action and reach out to avoid falling into a funk. man. how did this happen? oh well – shoot first, ask questions later. it’s chocolate time.
btw, you’re all invited to my “don’t be sad” party. we’ll figure out when and where later.
Joy gives us wings! In times of joy our strength is more vital, our intellect keener, and our understanding less clouded. We seem better able to cope with the world and to find our sphere of usefulness. But when sadness visits us we become weak, our strength leaves us, our comprehension is dim and our intelligence veiled. The actualities of life seem to elude our grasp, the eyes of our spirits fail to discover the sacred mysteries, and we become even as dead beings.
There is no human being untouched by these two influences; but all the sorrow and the grief that exist come from the world of matter—the spiritual world bestows only the joy!
