Is Depression a Gift?
Posted: October 9, 2020
Jim shares his own story (via video) as he asks, Are Authors in Their 'Write' Minds?…
University studies have shown the people with clinical depression tend to be more creative, more empathetic and deeper thinkers than “normal” people.
What I had always viewed at a curse has become a gift. Here’s what St. Paul writes:
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 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” ().
And so, clinical depression has made me a more creative, empathetic, and compassionate person to encourage people through my writing and speaking. And God can turn your weakness into a strength as I describe in this brand new video.
If you find this video helpful, please share it on your social networks. Thanks!
