Excellent message! I am convinced that self-pity is our most negative and destructive emotion. We are here to act, not be acted upon. Dealing with depression for much of my 75 years has blessed me in ways I could not have otherwise have received.

Wow! What great articles. We so often struggle, looking beyond the mark, when some of our suffering can be lightened by applying the basic principles of the Word of Wisdom. As one who has suffered from varying degrees of depression for most of my life, I recognize that I need to get to bed earlier, eat a more healthy diet and get more exercise. I appreciate your gentleness in urging that we can start with small steps and work from there. Otherwise, it becomes overwhelming and just another way of feeding the depression. I have found great strength and power in meditating on the scriptures and attending the temple. We need to bring as much light into our being as possible. I have felt the Savior carrying my burdens and I am so grateful for him and his power manifested in my life. My depression is not gone, but it so much better than it was.

Thank you, Jacob Hess, for all of your articles. I learn so much from them and have sent some of your thoughts and ideas to a son who suffers from depression. Your articles are always worthwhile reading

This is one of the most valuable resources for healing (mental, physical, emotional and spritiual) that I have ever come across. The resources shared, the insight, the compassion, the truth - all of it - deeply moving. I will share far and wide, because this is a deep-seated passion for me too. Thank you, Jacob!

Thank you for insightful articles that are filled with hope and honesty. I have suffered with mental illness for almost 50 years without hope of getting better. I am learning to accept that I won't truly be whole until the next life, yet now I see that I can make improvement in this life.
