Pain, Sadness and Depression…How to Cope

Why is pain useful?

Pain, physical or emotional, indicates that there is a problem. It indicates something needs to be treated. Using painkillers only and ignoring the root causes of our problems is not useful or smart; it can cause further damage.

It’s human to feel sad; however, there’s a difference between depression, devastation, despair and hopelessness.

Sister Yasmin Mogahed offers useful tips and insights about the causes and remedies of these symptoms.
