15June2008 Depression and service

Especially when you are depressed, look for someone in need of help and help them. Something as simple as cleaning off the table for someone else or helping them get their car unstuck can lift that load. It is the best way to get rid of depression, particularly if it involves physical, big-muscle work (unless the depression is caused by disobedience). Much of depression is caused by selfish, inward thinking. When we forget ourselves and go to work, we feel better. Of course if the cause is disobedience, then the only remedy is repentance.
