There must be a reason - why are you feeling this way? Depression and low self esteem happen for a reason. If you like, share the cause and I am sure one of us can help guide you through it or try talking to someone, usually us humans know the answer to our problems ourselves.

There must be a reason - why are you feeling this way? I had low self esteem, thought I wasn't pretty etc but seriously everyone tells me I am. I just didn't know how to dress up and ummm I still don't but I have friends and family who help me out.

everything has been said before...thats the only way to get eternal peace...

what i would recommend you..i dont know where you live, but i am pretty sure that there must be a Rehnsbhai Keertan - keertan the whole night - near you place. Just go and sit there; sing along.

Sister jee,

why depressed?

if you understand punjabi .. listen to this katha...

This Shabad written by Satguru Arjan Dev ji Maharaj should lift us all up.

Let's just do it..

if not, well we all know.. that Satguru ji,Naam and Satsangat is the only thing which will bring you peace.. charge your battery which seem to be very low;)..

feel Gurus present

Dear Sister,

I was in exactly the same mode few months ago due to various reasons. With Guru's grace and His sadhsangat you can overcome this feeling. We tend to eat and look after all our needs for the body but we forget that our soul needs its food too. The food for the soul is Naam Simran, sewa and Sadhsangat and when the soul gets all that then it becomes really happy. If your soul is happy then you are automatically happy and your body has positive effects of that too.

So try to attend sadhsangat and try to do at least 5 minutes of naam simran daily. You will see the difference yourself.

May God Bless you :)

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that you feel that way. Gurbani is the way forward, tune in and feel the gurus present. Do naam simran kirtan and relax your mind. Forget other worries and focus your mind on the gurbani because in it rests true greatness (-: I shall pray for your well-being and may waheguru bless us all. Hope I helped.

Please go see a doctor, clean up your diet , exercise yoga or weight lifting and pray. Sometimes we find answer where there least expected and please don't give up on this beautiful life.
