18: The Essence of Depression

Major breakthrough. For me, at least. Depression is not forgiving yourself, just as you get spiritually sick (and maybe physically) if you fail to forgive another. That’s the big insight. Terry Warner already did the work of explaining how when we don’t forgive another we get spiritually sick. Apparently we can do the same exact thing, only with ourselves, and that’s depression. We are self-reflective beings, which makes that possible.

Forgiveness, whether of another or ourselves, is only possible through the atonement of Jesus Christ. And that whether you realize it or not – works the same.

Have we wrestled depression to the ground?? We’ll talk about this more.
