Battling Depression, by Dan Phillips

"Battling Depression", by Dan Phillips

Great post. Depression is just as much a sin to be fought against as lust. He nails it right on the mark with point #7:

Here's a hard one: have you realized and "owned" how much laziness there is in the unbelief that fuels depression, how much pride and stubbornness too? Remember: everything we do, we do because we think (perversely, sometimes) that it will make us happy. Have you come to take pleasure in being seen as a noble sufferer, a tragic victim — has that become an important element of your self-image?

I reserve the right to remove / abridge comments which are (1) too long (no blog posts please); (2) off topic (again.); or (3) mean-spirited (feel free to disagree, but do so graciously). That is all. Thank you for reading and comment away!
