When one door of happiness closes…

When one door of happiness closes…

Helen Keller Quote
Helen Keller Quote

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
~ Helen Keller

“Ramen” to that!  This Helen Keller quote points to a common seed of  depression. When I’m depressed, I see only the negative thing, the closed door–I can’t break out of that focus to find alternatives. I feel trapped.

When I manage to defeat depression, I can always point to a change in perspective where I see options or possibilities I could not see before. It can take time, and often requires the help of family and friends, but in the end it’s all about focusing on the open door.

Get in! No time to explain!
