To have happiness at the expense of that of someone I love is something I could not live with.

There are times when you have to step back and love a person from afar.

Just something God taught me last night and then again this morning.

I may or may not write more about it later.

Unfortuntely Chris too many have little to know concept of the disease you struggle with nor the proper ways to respond to it and thus act in the exact opposite way as they should. I've come to learn that it isn't always malicious but simply that depression as a whole is the least understood and accepted disease, but one of the most insidious. I myself have diagnosed major/severe depression, post traumatic stress disorder and general anxiety disorder and am borderline bi-polar. So I understand the pain of it all. Do not ever for an instant though allow others to convince you that you are at fault for having a disease...because you are not. And if people choose to treat you differently or exclude you it is their loss as you are a generous, heartfelt and intelligent guy so screw them.

Listen to what Gary is telling you. If someone is hardhearted then it's their loss and not yours. It's not the tenderheartedness God calls for throuout scripture.

It really I'd "them", not you. As someone who has battled similarly - let go of anyone who does not build you up. Please. That is the only way some of us make it in life, and make it happily!

Stay strong, broheim. This life may be hard and painful and unforgiving at times, but you are made of far sterner stuff than you give yourself credit for. many people care for your well-being.

Listen Chris.

If it hadn't been for you, most families in Rockingham County would be paying money they barely have for school uniforms.

If it hadn't been for you, a certain cult would still be interfering with worship services at good God seeking churches while televising the harassment.

If it hadn't been for you, millions of people wouldn't have had to think about the worst legislation before Common Core, while letting them laugh too.

If it hadn't been for you, millions of dollars would have been swindled and they would have got away with it.

If it hadn't been for you, one of my friends would have committed suicide and not be here today.

You sell yourself way short, you don't see what difference you've made to so many people. There are people literally alive because of you. There are homes that would be poorer without you. Chin up! You are cared for by so many people and God has you in the cup of His hands. People will let you down, but God never will.
