God’s unseen ways

on

Just yesterday…

I felt lonelier than what I already felt. I felt much downer in the dumps. I didn’t feel like talking over the phone to my husband or my best friend or anyone. I was looking up for articles on signs and symptoms of depressionย and was wondering about seeking medical help.

And today…

I read this –

… I knew depression was real, in many cases required medical attention. I also knew we overused the word. Much of what we called depression was really dissatisfaction, a result of setting a bar impossibly high or expecting treasures that we weren’t willing to work for. I knew people whose unbearable source of misery was their weight, their baldness or their lack of advancement in a workplace, or their inability to find the perfect mate, even if they themselves did not behave like one. To these people unhappiness was a condition, an intolerable state of affairs. If pills could help, pills were taken.

But pills were not going to change the fundamental problem in construction. Wanting what you can’t have. Looking for self-worth in the mirror. Layering work on top of work and still wondering why you weren’t satisfied – before working some more. …

Strange are God’s ways of answering our questions. We just need to keep looking out for them I guess!

    This too will pass sweet heart.That is all I can tell..Sometimes we might not get what we expect out of life immediately..but it would come after some time and when you look back, those listless days and struggle would have made you a stronger individual.. Remember this..’If you wish upon a star,it doesn’t matter who you are..Whatever your heart desires will be yours’
