Post written by Jarrid Wilson:
Ever have those weeks/months where:
1. You don’t ever want to get out of bed?
2. You get overly emotional about anything and everything?
3. Your insecurities flare up over small and minuscule issues?
4. You feel like everyone around you is secretly planning a plot against you?
I’ve been in a battle with depression and anxiety for over 6 years of my life. And although God has freed me from much of my bondage, I’m still human, and I still have flaws.
If I’m Being Honest: I sometimes find myself feeling insecure if my fiance doesn’t respond to one of my texts messages within the first 5 seconds of me sending it, or if one of my blog posts doesn’t get as many likes and shares as I thought it would.
Silly right? Yup.
The Reality Is: It has nothing to do with anyone other than me. Depression can turn you into your own worst enemy. And that can suck the life out of you.
My main reason for posting this is to take away any pre-conceived notions that you may have of me, my relationship with my fiance, and my relationship with God. Why? Because I’m not a perfect fiance’. I’m not a perfect Christian. I’m not a perfect anything…
- I have flaws.
- I make mistakes.
- I will continue to fall short of the Glory of God.
This post is to show you that you’re not alone. And that no matter how perfect people look through the lens of a tweet or post, I guarantee they are just as messed up as you and I are. Anyone who feels they are sitting at the lowest of lows, can look to a God who sits at the highest of highs. Believe me, I’ve done it.
We are all in this together. Through honesty and transparency The Kingdom of God will grow strong.
1 Peter 5:7 – Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
