Holidays are somewhat stressful at times. They remind us of how our lives are doing at the moment. It is best to remember a few things when you are sad and down.
1. Do not give up. There is always hope.
2. God gives us only what we can handle. If going through something bad, always look to this.
3. The saying: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
4. God is always the footprints in our sand. When we need someone, a good friend, etc., He is always there.
Just some little positive things to remember. I am not a preacher but I would like to help depressed people. :)
