Morning Cup of Joe – Hitting Rock Bottom

To experience depression is to experience one of the lowest, if not the lowest, emotion of them all. Being depressed means that you have reached a point where you have given up hope on mostly everything in your life; your physical and spiritual health as well as your relationships suffer immensely. Your family and social life suffers and worst of all, you suffer. When you are at a point where you think, feel and believe that life has nothing more to offer, simply step back and reevaluate your situation. If you are on this side of the dirt, there is always hope.

Once you hit rock bottom, the only direction you can go is up. Remember that nothing happens by accident; even our trials and tribulations are set up in such a way to strengthen a particular proverbial muscle. In essence, we go through trials in our lives as a means to show the world that one can overcome tragedy. Simply, we are all here to serve as testimonies. It is imperative that you understand the importance of overcoming your obstacles so that you can be an example for others. Some people are strong because they draw on the strength of others; subscribing to the thought that “if s/he can do it, so can I”. If you overcoming an obstacle serves as an example of what’s possible, simply thank God for the opportunity.

I have been fortunate enough to experience the bottom. I am even more fortunate to learn the simple lesson and understanding that from that point on it can only get better; that’s what I kept telling myself. Along my journey, I have lost many worldly possessions including homes, automobiles and other “stuff”. Once I came to the realization that I am not my “stuff”, my world opened up to new possibilities. I no longer worked hard to possess worldly things; I simply worked hard to possess a greater sense of happiness and a greater sense of awareness.

Why do you think you are going through your trial? I’ll tell you why. For one, it is because God has specifically chosen you. Be thankful and know that you can and will make it through, especially if you believe that you can. Keep fighting and don’t stop believing in the impossible; miracles do happen.
