But if you're taking medication for something that's cause other than physical it can be be problematic. Although I will say that though sometimes you get into a deep spiral depression we'll talk a little bit more about that in a moment, we're taking medication for a short period of time just to stabilize you enough to begin to think correctly sometimes can be helpful.
So send me your emails all right? Sometimes it's physical. Another thing that I would put on my checklist is sometimes it's cognitive. It's what I call stinking thinking all right? Where we begin to have some presuppositions about what we have to have happen in our life in terms of circumstances or our expectation of other people and the happiness that they should provide for us and we set ourselves up for a grand disappointment that sinks us into depression.
And what's really going on there is a perceived loss not an actual loss. Because we really didn't lose anything it never was our right to have that in the first place and when that happens what we need to do is we need to change the way we think. We need to begin to look at life and value life like God looks at life and values life.
Years ago someone came to my office and very frankly they were coming to my office, this is about thirty years ago, this person was not a member of our church. Basically they were saying to me they were gonna leave my office and commit suicide. That they had come there to make their peace with God before they went out to commit suicide and the reason is that this person's business had fallen on tough times and when I got down to the bottom of it, the reason that he was going to kill himself is because he thought he was going to lose his home.
