Can The Pain Of Depression Be A Gift?

May 24, 2018

Episode Summary: Listen to episode 5 of Podcast For The Soul, 'Can The Pain of Depression Be A Gift?'. In this episode I share some heart-breaking moments I have had recently and take you through how a moment in self-discovery showed me how depression can be a gift. 

(Podcast name change from episode 7)

Topics covered:

  • Why depression is not simply an experience that is pointless
  • How my own experience of depression led me to understand the deeper idea of depression as a blessing not a curse
  • What the purpose of losing all interest in hobbies and those things we enjoyed may be signalling us for change
