Smiling in Pain: Confessions of the Functionally Depressed
There are so many people get up every morning and pray, shower and get dressed. Go to work! Smile! Laugh!
Encourage and motivate others but are still living with depression. How do I know that? Because I have lived that exact way so many years. People have no clue what others go through within themselves. A lot of us have an internal dialogue that is so critical of ourselves. You see we are really not concerned about what others say, but are actually dealing with the reality of arguing against ourselves for a healthier self image. I am learning the power of talking healthy to myself. It has become a healing for me to do like the word of God says, "Call those things that be not as though they were!" I have learned and continue to learn to speak like in my very present pain. For the next couple of weeks I am going to take you on my journey of, "My Healthier Mind!" I had to learn to love me again! I like myself again but only because I worked through my issues through prayer, meditation on God's word and positive reinforcement. Are you ready to be healed? Hope you enjoy this new journey with me!
