You don’t have to feel weighed down by sadness and depression.

Everyone has ups and downs. But, sometimes, feelings of sadness and depression can linger, making it harder to feel more like you. 

These feelings may have come on suddenly or gradually risen over time. You may have started feeling down due to a difficult life event, a relationship conflict, feeling overwhelmed with responsibilities, or a growing sense of dissatisfaction with your life. Worse yet, you may not even be sure how these feelings started but you know you want them to stop.

Additionally, you may not feel that depression or sadness is your main symptom — but you don’t feel like you. 

You may:

  • Feel sad, empty, or hopeless
  • Feel more irritable or angry
  • Have less energy
  • Struggle to engage in activities you normally enjoy
  • Feel overwhelmed or anxious
  • Have difficulty sleeping or eating
  • Struggle to focus or concentrate
  • Feel less present in your life and relationships

But “pushing through it” on your own and “being strong” isn’t working. And depression typically doesn’t just disappear.

You can feel better, more energized, and more you — and you don’t have to do it alone.

As a Christian, it may feel easier to offer support to others than to receive it for yourself. 

For some, they may struggle to talk to friends, family, or other church members about their struggles for fear that they won’t be viewed as a “good” Christian or that they’re lacking in faith. Others may not feel comfortable sharing their burdens.

Yet, God encourages us to seek help and support from him and others.

“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”

– 2 Corinthians 1:4 NLT
