Is an unhealthy soul holding you back?

Are you satisfied with where your life is right now?

Yes? Great!

No? Could an unhealthy soul be holding you back?

Past hurts, relationships,, society, environment can all affect your soul and unless you deal with it you’ll continue to go on throughout life affected by an unhealthy hurting soul.

One hindrance to a healthy soul are health challenges such as depression.

Are you experiencing depression?

The Causes of Depression

Depression in the Christian world can be seen as a negative and many avoid addressing this because of this. You must understand that depression is normal. It is a symptom of something upsetting the balance in your life. There are many causes for depression, as you will see below. The causes may be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.

MOST COMMON CAUSES

The factor that contributes a lot to depression is a sense of deprivation, or simply a feeling of being lost. This sense of loss may be real or just in the mind.

MENTAL CAUSES

• Negative thinking. This can include pessimistic and Defective Thinking.
Have you heard the statement that“it’s all in the mind?” This can never be truer. As I’ve often stated thoughts like an action are energy. Positive thoughts render positive energy. Negative thoughts render negative energy. If you think that your life is in the dumps, then it probably is. If you think that the problems you face are exciting challenges that will lead you closer to success, instead of thinking of them as real unsolvable problems, then you probably won’t feel depressed. It all depends on your attitude.

• Impractical Expectations Not Attained
Say for instance you’re expecting to be promoted as manager, but someone else gets the job, then re-assess yourself if you really deserve to get the position. If you didn’t meet the qualification, then work harder and don’t get disappointed. If you are worthy for the job but your efforts are not being noticed, then forget about it. Shift your focus on other worthwhile goals. Life is too short to be spent on things beyond our control. And what you focus on expands right?
• Low Self Esteem

If you have low self-esteem or self-confidence it’s been stated that you’ll have a higher chance of being diagnosed with depression. Here is one of many limiting beliefs that may be always running in their minds:

  1. Very good information. I have an article I did a while back on depression. Let me know if you would like to use it and I’ll send it to you.

    I pray many read this and consider that depression could very well be what they are dealing with. It isn’t just sitting around crying all the time.

    Robin, this post is so needed. You are absolutely right so many Christians avoid talking about depression. But the only way to combat it is to recognize it and get help and or healing from the Lord. Thank you for sharing

  3. very timely article, Robin! Sick souls have a devastating effect on our ability to function in life. A lot of times we are stuck because we don’t deal with waht’s going on on the inside.
