    heya i found this parable on the interent after hours of searching lol.

    it really shows, just as life does, if you can take the first few steps, the rest will follow, and you will get gradually better.

    hope you make good use of it

    i know nothigns going to happen over night, and no of course its not. But if you can start to take small steps everyday, they will gradually help to get you back on track. of course its easier said than done, you have to look inside you and figure out what you need to do to sort yourself out. but once you have..... you're away.

    im not saying this will cure depression, hopefully just help you to realize you deserve mroe than youve got, so try putting some goodness back in your life.

    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old, that the well needed to be covered anyway and that it just wasn't worth retrieving the donkey. So he invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quietened down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off! Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.

    love you all
