Some individuals might put a nasty label on those that are suffering from some form of depression. These people might imply that if you are a believer of Allah then you cannot be depressed. However, what those people fail to understand is that a moment of weakness does not mean YOU are weak, it just means that you are human, and you need Allah SWT to guide you towards something better.
Often times, we think we are in control of our lives, but when an unexpected event (such as depression) hits us, we realize that Allah is the planner of our lives and he wants to test you to get stronger! You see, Allah wants us to move from where we reside in our lives, for he knows there is something better for us
If I didn’t go through such a traumatic experience in life (see post ‘I Lied To My Therapist – Postpartum Depression & The Baby Blues’), I would have continued to live my life as it was going, and I would not have been internally happy!
