You try to put your head on your pillow and close your eyes, but that is where the nightmare begins.
You try to close your eyes and sleep but you can’t…that is when the “nightmare” begins. This is because all of the bad things that have happened to you that day or week keep playing in your mind like a 3 D movie screen, and as much as you would like to turn that movie off…you can’t. This is the horror story that people suffering depression face every day, every minute of their lives.
One of the biggest issues that we deal with here at Fort Worth Christian Counseling is depression. Almost everyone of us has dealt with depression at one time or another, but there are some people who deal with depression 24 hours a day seven days a week. As difficult as it may seem to deal with depression, it all starts with one thing.
The way we think and learning how to shut it off!
If you haven’t read about how we counsel, go to the top of the page and click What is Temperament because that is where it all begins. One of the five temperaments is able to think deeply and because of this they can go into depression easily. They can go into “dark moods” and even “back of moods”. Learning how to think is just as important as a learning what to think.
Be sure to read Dr. WH Penewit’s next post on depression entitled “Dark Moods, Black Moods…the life of Depression”
