Depression is a common mental health disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest in activities. According to the World Health Organization, over 264 million people worldwide suffer from depression.

Therapy can be a crucial tool in managing and treating depression. Cognitive-behavioral therapy helps one to rewire their brain. I also believe CBT aligns with bible and supports the scripture.

There are various tools and strategies that can help individuals deal with depression, such as mindfulness meditation, exercise, journaling, and social support.

For those battling depression, it's important to prioritize self-care, seek professional help, and build a strong support system. It's also helpful to challenge negative thinking patterns and engage in activities that bring joy and fulfillment. Remember, you are not alone and there is hope for recovery.

Meditating on the scriptures is also a tool. Reminding yourself that God said He would never leave us nor forsake us. That He would be a present help in the time of trouble. Remembering He said He would restore our soul. That restoring is a reset. A space we can breathe and trust that even in our darkest moments that is hope and there is help.

Lastly, remember to give yourself Grace and give yourself time.
