DEPRESSION

Written 4th March 2002


I laugh
when I'm not happy
I sleep
when I'm not tired
I eat 
when I'm not hungry
I talk
when there's no one to listen
I run
when there's nowhere to go
I pray
but is there anyone there
Emotionally I have had all I can take
my head hurts 
my body aches
all because I made a mistake

    Forgiveness is key! Forgive yourself and then watch the magic happen. The beautiful thing is that you're already forgiven! Keep writing...

    Here we have a very sad point of view of own life. If it corresponds to truth, you must receive from me the encouragement to try to come out of depression. We all make mistakes, but love can help to fix them
