Is This Depression? What To Do?

1 comment

Dear I Am The Lost Sheep,

 

I don't know how to start this letter. I want to say something but I don’t know how. It's been awhile since I felt this emptiness in me. I don't understand what I have been feeling. I want to cry to make me feel better. As much as I want to share things to the people close to me, I feel that it is useless because they can't understand what I am going through.

 

Is this what they call depression? I don't know. But what I know is that this is disrupting my day to day living. I am no longer motivated to do the things that I need to do. There were moments were I felt worthless and useless. There were suicidal thoughts. Yes, I had thought of committing suicide. The voice was so persuading that I once tried to slit my wrist with a blade. I want to end this life. But, I am still here and still facing the same troubles.

 

I don’t know what I need because in the first place I don’t know myself now. I don’t know if there's any advice that can make me feel better. I found this platform so I can express and hoping that I will feel better.

 

Thanks,

Gigi

 

Hello Gigi,

 

Thanks for sharing your story. I am pretty sure that there are a lot of us who can relate to what you are feeling now.

 

First of all, I am not a licensed Psychologist, so I can't give you a definite assessment and diagnosis about your condition. But trust me, I understand what you’re feeling because I had experienced that. I can attest that what you're going through is difficult and unexplainable. It is more than a sad feeling and you can’t directly figure out the exact cause, which becomes harder.

 

One powerful thing that made me overcome my mental and emotional dilemma - - - PRAYER! More than anyone, it is God who can understand you better. Even if you will not tell Him what and how you feel, He already knows what’s bothering you inside. And the good news is, He has the solution too!

I always believe that all things happen for a greater reason. And what you are experiencing now is a call from God. He is calling you to draw closer to Him so He can comfort you.

 

1 Peter 5:7 - Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

 

You don’t need to have the exact words for God to understand you, all you need is to humble yourself and ask God to heal you and fill that emptiness in your heart.

 

And also, committing suicide is not the solution to your problem. It will never be a solution to any problem. You want to experience to be happy, right? You want to experience to be free from what you’re feeling now, right? How can you experience all these when you are dead already? Make sense? :) The next time that evil thought will corrupt your mind, rebuke it in the mighty name of Jesus!

 

What you're going through now Gigi, will pass. It is only temporary. Do not worry, trust God more.

Moreover, you have a family in I Am The Lost Sheep. This is a platform for you to share your thoughts and feelings. We are here for you.

 

You are an inspiration, Gigi. Don't give up.

 

 

Always,

Joan of I Am The Lost Sheep
