I couldn’t help but think of the scripture that says, “A cheerful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22
This is why we need to stay far away from depression as we can. It will destroy our lives in so many ways. It’s easy to give in to depression and let it control us instead of us controlling it. We have to fight. I saying this from a place that I know because I’ve been there. This could be the very reason I’m having so many health problems now. I don’t believe I struggle with depression now, but I am to dealing with the consequences of my past.
It’s not just a matter of laughing. I’ve seen depressed people laugh and I did as well. Referring back to the scripture it says, “A cheerful heart” It’s not talking about what we manifest on the outside, but what’s in our heart.
Some of you may be in this situation right now feeling trapped and not knowing how to escape. I would be more than glad to help you. All you have to do is ask.
