Bible verse of the day 

“Why are you depressed, O my soul? Why are you upset? 

Wait for God! 

For I will again give thanks to my God for his saving intervention.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42:11‬ ‭NET‬‬

Why? Why? ~ you have no need to be……! 😔😕😖

The key word is WAIT. For I will again…

Compare with the Buddhist doctrine of “anichya”. No mental state lasts (forever), & will pass away, if you only remain objectively aware of it (for long enough), as an ephemeral phenomenon.

There is no need for any divine intervention, this is the very nature of life itself!

What is it that compels you to quickly overcome your melancholy, so that you can “get on with the real business of living”? That is what is really killing you!

First, get rid of the need to “be normal” or “feel good”……….
