Depression and anxiety are the hunger pangs of your soul. Much like pain in your body is a warning to you that there is a physical problem for you to take care of, depression and anxiety are your soul’s way of flagging your attention. They are warnings telling you to do something. Unfortunately, when people experience depression, they often don’t recognize it as the soul calling, and they try to alleviate their feelings in self-destructive ways. Depression is the soul saying, “I’m not satisfied.” If you’re not doing what you are supposed to be doing with your life, your soul is going to cry out to you.
