Mending Hearts: My Journey Through The Fog Of Depression - 2

Each of my posts in this series will be short so it won't become too cumbersome. I will do my best to merge both objectivity and sentimentality.I have always been sort of moody. I'm an introvert and my dominant temperament is melancholic. I also have a photgraphic memory. I very hardly forget things. I don't forget the good or the bad. I only tend to fixate on the bad and dwell on this so much until the negative energy just takes over me. So, it might happen that before 1 remeber the 100 good things someone did to me, I will remember and repeat the 5 bad things they did. Before I counted the goodness of God, I dwelt on the few times the devil got one over me. I kept replaying over and over the bad things, the dissappointments, etc. I loved God but I didn't trust Him enough to believe that He could still bring something good out of all the bad. The events that resulted in my period of depression started in 2008. Surprisingly, I didn't even notice the devil stealing …

Mending Hearts: My Journey Through The Fog Of Depression.

I have had a lot of series published on the blog. I have also had different journeys some of which I practically begged some of you guys to go on with me(thanks for that by the way). I know I haven't written on the blog in a while. For that I sincerely apologize. Life got in the way. I've been publishing my articles on Bugle though and I only missed releasing something this week. Again, I apologize. Consistency is important as a writer cum blogger but...Why am I bringing out the Mending Hearts series from hibernation? I'll tell you. I read something online. The author (who I won't be naming) said, "depression is a disease that belongs to white men". Anyway, being the kind of person that I am, you can be sure that this pronouncement got my panties in a bunch. So many times in my articles I've hinted about my experience with depression. I guess it's about time I'm thorough about the experience. So I can do my part in creating awareness. Depression i…

The Art Of Submission - 2

Let's get back to business, ladies! I'm sorry it took me so long to continue my post on submission. I had some family engagements and so I decided to leave it for a time that I'll be able to give it 100%. Like I said in the last post, Submission means to willingly yield. I saw a post on Instagram that read, " Women don't know the power that they have"! Such a powerful and truthful quote. It's true...we don't know. Let me rephrase that, so many don't know (some know and others like me just found out). Let's wade a bit in spiritual waters. The devil knew for a fact that two heads are always better than one...and so he decided to attack the unity and balance between men and women. He threw confusion into their midst and distrupted the balance in the order of things. God created both men and women but He created them to play different roles. The moment women started to try and be men, they  attempted to rearrange God's plan and purposes for th…
