Depression as a gift

Posted by chumbawumba on May 11, 2009, at 1:13:00

So I read the boards here and everyone seems to be locked in mortal combat with their dis-ease, mostly depression. As if it's something to be beaten, defeated, killed like a flu virus.

For some reason it reminds me of the saying about war, "There are no winners in war, only losers"

For myself I think I've always hoped maybe there is some way back to a happier time before this ever happened to me.

If anyone has found the pill that does that, let me know what it is,'cause I thought I'd tried them all.

So my question is this: Has anyone tried a softer approach. Has anyone here found the question that depression is asking you?

For myself I suppose, the question that depression asks of me is "Will you open your heart to having compassion for yourself?"

or "Can you forgive your parents?"


"What meaning can you make out of all this suffering?"

As for the answers, at least for me. Well that's a work in progress.
