Hey Gorgeous Queen🤗🤗🤗,
I know sometimes you get tired, or grow weary, but don’t quit. I know you may feel like you aren’t seeing the fruit of your efforts yet but don’t quit. I know you may not see the point in continuing to overextend yourself to that family member that just doesn’t seem to care about building a healthy relationship, but don’t quit. I’m reminded of a few scriptures that I’ll share to be an encouragement to you.
“So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.”
Galatians 6:9 NLT
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
Psalms 30:5 NLT
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
Philippians 1:6 NLT
It’s ok to understand you will sometimes feel great, other days not so great. Remember through it all, don’t ever be afraid to ask for help. You may even need help to find hope if you no longer can see there’s hope. If you find yourself having more not so great days, or more depressed days than joy-filled days, it may be time to reach out for specialized assistance from a licensed counselor, psychiatrist, or mental health professional. There is absolutely NO SHAME in us all getting the help that is needed so that we can continue shining our light. Sometimes they grow dim, but if your light has blown all the way out, just like a pilot, it may need to be re-lit. Sometimes we can do that on our own, and other times we call for backup!
According to Womenshealth.gov, “Depression is a mental health illness when someone feels sad (including crying often), empty, or hopeless most of the time (or loses interest in or takes no pleasure in daily activities) for at least 2 weeks. Depression affects a person’s ability to work, go to school, or have relationships with friends and family. Depression is one of the most common mental health conditions in the United States. It is an illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts. It can affect the way you eat and sleep, the way you feel about yourself, and the way you think about things.
It is different from feeling “blue” or “down” or just sad for a few hours or a couple of days. Depression is also different from grief over losing a loved one or experiencing sadness after a trauma or difficult event. It is not a condition that can be willed or wished away. People who have depression cannot just “pull themselves” out of it.”
Not all people with depression have the same symptoms. Some people might have only a few symptoms, while others may have many. How often symptoms happen, how long they last, and how severe they are may be different for each person.
According to research, “One in every eight women will experience depression symptoms at some point during their lifetime.
If you have any of the following symptoms for at least 2 weeks, talk to a doctor or nurse or mental health professional. Symptoms can include:
- Depressed mood
- Loss of interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy
- Lack of energy and fatigue
- Feelings of guilt, hopelessness and worthlessness
- Appetite and weight changes
- Sleep changes (sleeping more or less)
- Difficulty concentrating
- Constant physical symptoms that do not get better with treatment, such as headaches, upset stomach, and pain that doesn’t go away
- Suicidal thoughts or recurrent thoughts of death.”
- If you or anyone that you know has expressed thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline immediately at 1 (800) 273-8255.
One phone call could save someone’s life, including your own.
Big hugs to you🤗🤗🤗!
Love, Joy, Grace, and Peace to you!
