Forget It!

Everyone has stress; it’s a normal part of life. Getting up, going to work, driving a car, having a disagreeable discussion, catching a cold, and a poor night’s sleep are staples in the diet of everyday men and women.

The problem is when you dwell on problems and let the stress overwhelm you and you end up with depression, like staying in the woods too long and getting poison ivy. Forget the bad day at work when you get home; don’t dwell on it. Forget the guy who cut you off on the freeway and the argument you just had with your spouse. It’s not what happens to you that’s important; it’s how you take it in. My suggestion – forget it!

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.
