Depression and Religion

Depression and Religion relation

Some professionals said that there is no connection between depression and religion, below is the opinion of people who think that there is a connection:

If we thought of depression as a result of three factors 1) the tendency to become depressed 2) external influences and 3) the meaning you attach to these external factors then we can conclude that removing any of the three sides of this triangle may prevent depression from happening.

Although we can't change our tendency to become depressed and sometimes we can't change the external conditions still religion can help us change the third factor which is how we perceive the external conditions.

An example to make it clear

Suppose you that were depressed and then I asked you to tell me your problems and I promised to solve them whatever they are in one week. What are you going to feel then?

There are only two possibilities, either you won't feel anything because you may think that I can't help you or either you will get some hope if you believed that i can do something about it.

If i came back after solving your problems one week later then you will certainly feel good. That's where religion come in practice, God promised in all religious books that he will solve your problems if you asked him to do so. If you believed 100% that God will help you then there will never be any room for depression.

The biggest clue is that the number of suicide attempts is very large among people who don't believe in God while you can rarely find someone religious attempting suicide except if he inherited religion from his parents without having no real connection to it.

Should i believe in God just because i need a God?

No, you should only believe in God after you become convinced that he exists. In my book "I Saw God" i explained how real faith comes after finding a strong proof for God's existence and how beliefs can be shaken if the foundation wasn't supported by solid research.

You can find God by reading about science. There are hundreds of evidences that can show you that this world was designed and that it didn't come into existence by chance, just do your homework and you will find what you are looking for.

The book "I Saw God" was released by 2knowmyself, The book provides scientific evidence that prove the existence of god, with levels of probabilities that are not subject to debate or revision. The facts are crystal clear and 100% scientific; after knowing these facts, you'll come to the conclusion that there is no other possibility other than the presence of a mighty creator who planned this all.

2knowmyself is not a simple article website nor it's a place where you will find shallow fixes, but it's a place where you will find effective techniques that are backed by psychology and that are presented in obvious and understandable format. If you think that this is some kind of marketing hype then see what other visitors say about 2knowmyself.
