Growing up religion was always a big thing. My parents being divorced and having different religious beliefs left me to be confused. I was confused because I was forced to believe something I wasn't certain of at a young age. As I got older (high school) I would temporarily suffer from depression occasionally. For reasons I couldn't understand. Everyone I talked to just didn't understand. But I managed to stay strong. As I started college depression came back, but more severe. I woke up one day and didn't know why everything I had done in my life didn't make me happy. I didn't know how to be happy; everything was temporary happiness. I had gotten to the point I was going to take my own life. I felt as though I didn't have anything. My roommate was meditating earlier in the year and I had thought "there's nothing to lose". I started meditating that day and it changed my life. I have been meditating everyday since. I have been at peace everyday since. This has changed my life forever.
