Why Do People Say 'God Is Here! Don't Be Depressed!'?

Why Do People Say 'God Is Here! Don't Be Depressed!'?

Everyone says this to me. Life is so mean to me. Sometimes my life ends and I cry no one understands me. I hate this.

Hey friend, I can understand how depressed you may be feeling and how alone you feel. Unfortunately a lot of well meaning people who never had depression before might say that phrase if they are trying too hard to comfort you. Those people just dont understand.

I understand depression, how hard it is. I believe in God but at the same time I am sorry that the religious people you met would say this to you. It is not possible to just snap out of it and be happy when this is a mental disorder.

You need a listening ear more than pat answers, you need true friends who will give you a shoulder to cry on. Please contact me if you ever need me and although my personal opinion is that God is there for me, this is not a belief that anyone should push onto someone who is suffering. *HUGS*

i have prayed and prayed, nothing helped. my ex calls himself a Christian. He is abusive and a liar and uses his churchgoing only to maintain an image. The church threw me under the bus also.
