247. The Storms of Life 2

One of my readers commented on Post 244, The Storms of Life.

“This reminds me of a statement my dad would say,  ‘The same winds hit all men; the difference is how you set your sails.’”

Imagine you are on a sailboat caught in a fierce widespread storm heading from northwest to southeast. If you set your sails to the west, you will head into the teeth of the storm, to the east and the storm will follow you, to the south and you will still be in the storm for miles and miles. But if you set your sails to the north, you will soon be out of the storm. Jesus Christ is True North.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
