Depression can be a healing emotion
when you learn how to cooperate with it.
If you or someone you love is feeling depressed, you may think you're alone. But you really have a lot of company....
Do you feel sad or gloomy? Are you tired most of the time: Do you have "the blues"? Are you overwhelmed by feelings of failure? Do you have trouble concentrating? Does life seem like one big burden? Or have you suffered a major loss in your life? Dark Clouds, Silver Linings helps you understand depression, overcome its devastating effects, and be a more effective encouragement to depressed people around you.
Insightful, compassionate, and authoritative, Dark Clouds, Silver Linings offers practical help for those suffering from depression. It answers questions like: What causes depression? Is depression a sin? Is it a mental illness? Do we have any choice in becoming depressed? Is there a positive side to depression? Do women have special problems with it? What can a counselor or doctor do for me that I can't do for myself? What should I do when I don't feel like doing anything at all? What is the most important thing I can do for my depressed spouse, child, or friend?
If you're an average person, you will experience a significant depression sometime in your life. Depression is epidemic in our society. Some call it the "common cold" of the emotions. At some time in their lives, one of every five people will experience depression seriously enough to hinder their normal way of life. It can increase feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, and helplessness. But depression doesn't have to rule your life.
