Title: Blue-Grey, Misunderstanding Emotion.
SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 3:13-18 – Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that gets understanding.
IDEA: It can be hard to simply obtain the strength to do tasks and feel refreshed every morning. I have a close friend who is clinically depressed, and struggles with it daily. But she gives me joy every time we talk. She recently shared with me one of her worst experiences. One weekend she couldn’t get out of bed to do anything, in until the nighttime had rolled around. She felt utterly miserable and completely useless. She didn’t even know how and when her depressive state started. She called this day, “Blue-Grey”, which is what/how she felt. That memory she revealed made me realize how I could barely relate to her and made me want to help her. It took her parents and family a long time to realize, accept, and hire help for her.
Asking for strength from God and finding healthy alternatives to help make life worth living is what matters. For those of us who don’t have to deal with such trials as this, we should learn to understand and cater to people who aren’t like us. She has stated that my enthusiastic/optimistic personality at times has changed her life greatly, and I feel the same way.
