Dear Fred

how can we get out of deep sense of melegancy?

Fred's Response

I assume you are referring to deep moods of melancholy. Some people are more affected by this than others. For example, Dr. Samuel Johnson said that when he was 15 he realized he had a melancholy nature. One of my closest friends is plagued with this. He depends on his will to do acts of kindness when he feels sorry for himself. Fortunately, we know that our will is stronger than our emotions. Remember, the scripture says to be both grateful for and grateful in all situations. Be careful to review your blessings of assurance.
