5. The Spiritual

As you grow older, if you are focusing on this world, your life is behind you. If you are focusing on heaven, your life is before you. For one who is depressed, this is critical because

when you regurgitate the past, and especially a past of hopelessness and despair, you put yourself in a downward spiral. You are focusing on a small dot (your life on earth)┬áthat will soon pass. If you are focusing on heaven and eternity, you are part of a spiritual line that goes on forever and forever. The question is, where do you want to put your energy – on the dot or the line?

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
