The joy of the lord is our strength

Holidays are supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, but for some people they are anything but.

Depression may occur at any time of the year, but the stress and anxiety during the months of November and December may cause even those who are usually content to experience loneliness and a lack of fulfillment.

There are several different reasons why someone may struggle with depression. Here are a few:

Social Isolation

Some people may have a small social circle or may not have many opportunities to be social. People who feel disconnected often avoid social interactions all together unfortunately this behavior makes depression worse. It is important to be intentional to reach out to friends and family

Start a new tradition-

Instead of spending the holidays at home, go on a vacation or a family outing

Volunteer-Helping others can also be very helpful for you, too. For example, you might try:

  • working at a soup kitchen

  • organizing a gift drive

  • helping your neighbor with a yard or house task

Ultimately the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and He is with you during this season. He wants to heal the places that hurt in your heart if you let Him, you are so valuable and He has so much good for you.
