Michael Phelps is an Olympic class swimmer, who's dominated the sport for at least three Olympic seasons. He has fame, glory, riches, success. He's tall, muscular, and he has a former model for a wife ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicole_Jo ... ornia_USA) ).
Despite all this, he was depressed and suicidal. I just wonder why. He had and still has everything. In fact, he has more than most men ever get, and he didn't have to sell his soul to commit evil to get it. It was all a gift from God.
Why would he be suicidal or depressed? Most men don't have wealth, or fame or glory or riches, and most don't have model gorgeous former models as wives.
Salvation is the free gift of God simply for believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and it can't be lost; the only repentance necessary is the change of mind from unbelief to belief, because salvation is not about turning from sin because it is without works. Jesus, the Savior kept all the commandments in absolute perfection for us, ∴ salvation is without works, and He died for our sins, taking the eternal penalty for us.

I believe these folks with depression issues are given this gene from one parent at birth. I was married to a woman that suffered depression and she also had two sisters that had depression, and all three of them were on depression meds. I also believe that our culture and feminism cause more of these depression issues. I will never date or marry a woman who is depressed or taking depression meds again. It is almost impossible to be in a marriage with someone who suffers with depression.
I don't understand why either. Maybe a trip down to deepest Africa would aid him. Daily twenty mile hikes to reach drinkable water would perhaps make him appreciate what he has. He could even have a swim.
I know of a few people who have suffered from depression and committed suicide due to financial strains so I find it difficult to sympathise with a wealthy man like Phelps.
See, maybe it is not being allowed to live a normal live. Have a family. Be a patriarch when you deserve it. Maybe being pampered is not what we yearn for. Maybe we actually welcome challenges if we are given a chance to overcome them. Maybe being denied this is actually worse than being starved to death for a dignified white man.
wait you mean a bunch of NPCs are depressed? Cause they have no soul and are desperately trying to fill the void?
i'm literally bulletproof, for real. My friend shot a gun at me and the bullet bounced right off me.
Perhaps we should set up a charity for celebrities who've scaled the heights of Mount Self-Pity then? Life must be absolutely awful for them not being able to conquer challenges even though they can set themselves plenty by abstaining from their lavish lifestyles.
Like I mentioned before, a stint in the real world would be a suitable medicine then they might realise there's plenty of people suffering from poverty, war, cancer, paralyzation, blindness etc. that would appreciate living a normal life.
A normal life, you call whats going on normal ? People with any intelligence realize we are living during a end time. Mass extinctions are very rare events and predictions are in the next 80 years or so more than likely 50 % of the life on this planet will be wiped out. That means people with a brain no not to have children and not being able to tell the next generations they have a future is a very grime prospect indead as well as watching your genetic lines end.
Now if your an idiot like most humans you don't think about those things....
