Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. R.S.V. Matthew 7:7

Does Year’s End Make You Sad?

Psychiatrists and psychologists tell us that more people become depressed at the end of the year than at
any other time. Some people’s moods are actually sensitive to the amount of light in their environment, and
therefore as we approach the winter solstice (the shortest day of the year), these people find their moods
declining. This affliction is known by the acronym “SAD,” which stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder,
and for most people suffering from this, it results in mild to moderate depression. Some people, however,
suffer from more severe depressions at this time of year, perhaps because they have sad associations with the
holidays, or because they are alone, and they see others happily enjoying the festive season with friends and
family. The end of the year can also be a particularly lonely time for single people without friends or family
with whom to spend the holidays. If you are feeling sad and lonely as we approach the year’s end, don’t
think that you have to just “tough it out” or go it alone. Talk to a trusted spiritual advisor, your doctor, or a
therapist. Help is readily available, but you have to seek it out. Also, try to find people to spend time with at
the holidays, whether they are supportive friends or family members. And finally, don’t forget to ask God for
His help.
