Depression is real. And it is treatable and manageable. At three junctures I started my life over again. When life-as-I-knew-it ended, I started life anew essentially with few resources. Each time, I found a new life filled with purpose and meaning and happiness I never considered available to me.
I'm Done with organized religion. Organized religion by its very nature is exclusive. It divides the world up into a duality, saint and sinner. Kevin Swanson a Christian minister calls for the rounding up and execution of certain citizens for behaving badly. I choose to practice following Love into a spiritual life of my choosing. A spiritual life that is inclusive of all peoples.

Positive thoughts gave me my life back, transformed.
Best wishes for you and the life you desire . . .
