This Too Shall Pass.

April 13, 2013

Three 16-year-old boys were arrested Thursday in the sexual battery of an intoxicated and unconscious 15-year-old Saratoga CA High School student, who killed herself last fall after photos of the assault went viral. She was beautiful, talented and loved…just embarking on her life’s journey.

She became so depressed, she posted on Facebook, calling it the “worst day in her life,” a life she now wanted to end — which she did Sept. 10, eight days after the assault.

This post is about depression and how it affects millions of Americans. It’s often not what happens to us that plunges us into depression, but how we internalize and interpret events. One purpose of the Comfort Links book is to help train our brains to constantly reinforce and rebuild our self esteem, reboot and change direction and overcome feelings of depression. When bad things happen, eventually all the pieces fall into place again. Until then, we can learn to cope with the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason.

Noone ever really knows how much anyone else is hurting. We could be standing next to someone who is completely broken and we wouldn’t even know it. A little spark of kindness can put a colossal burst of sunshine into someone’s day.
