Default Please pray for me

Hi Everyone.

I hope it isn't selfish of me to ask for prayers for myself but I have been having a really hard time lately. Life is getting me down and I am really struggling with getting on my feet and fighting this awful depression. I've been depressed before in my life but not like this. I feel anxious, depressed, angry, confused, hopeless and paralyzed at the same. I didn't think that it was possible, but I guess that it is.

I feel disconnected and I guess that is that worst part.

Any prayers and thoughts will be greatly appreciated.

Love,

Hope

Hope I have been worried about you for some time now. I've read your various posts and wish I could do something to help you. Would talking about it help?
Please feel free to pm me anytime...and of course it isn't selfish to ask for prayers. I'm praying for you even as I type this.

Not selfish at all - sounds crippling. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope your depression is lifted soon.

((((Hope))))

I pray you find that hope you are seeking..that you will feel the depression begin to lift and know that God is shining His light of love for you into every corner that feels dark and hopeless .

it is never selfish to ask for prayer for (((you)))....it is reaching out to others and connecting with them in a special way, and giving them a loving purpose to join their prayers with yours. thank you for sharing a bit of you with us, and for the blessing of being able to pray for you.

Default Thank you

Thank you everybody for your prayers. It feels awkward for me to ask and I also feel unworthy. That's not good, I know.

I've always have been pretty independent. What that has to do with anything, I'm not sure. Sorry, if I am rambling on about things. My thought processes aren't very clear tonight.

I do appreciate your prayers and concern. That is something that I am not used to. Maybe, that is why I feel unworthy. I'm used to doing everything by myself.

I have developed my own unique relationship with God over the past several years but lately I feel that He has disappeared from my life. And that hurts.

Thank you Chemar for saying this, it really means a lot.

Thank you, Alffe. I've always felt an affinity towards you for some reason. Maybe I will pm you.

Thank you everyone, I'll keep trying to hang in there.

Love,

Default Hope quotes by Helen Keller

HOPE -

“Hope is a desire with an expectation of accomplishment.”


Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope or confidence.
--Helen Keller




Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.
--Helen Keller



“Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself... 'How did I get through all of that?”
Anonymous

God be prais'd, that to believing souls gives light in darkness, comfort in despair.
--William Shakespeare

Bless you, Tena

I woke up in such despair this morning and to see this is truly amazing. You people are so kind. I didn't think I could deserve it. It makes me cry.

I am at a loss for words.

Love,

Hope

Hope ... I, too, continue to pray for you ... you've already taken the first step ... I've been there too ... we're here for you ... talking it out helped me - and I've learned that unless we open up, others can't help .. that's their gift - so, we need to let others help - it's tough ... but, it's okay..
