Hey Friends! I interviewed an Human Resource Expert from Nigeria on the issue of depression and stress, Miss Akintelu Martha Feyisayo (ACIPM, B. Sc HRM & IR). So this is her view:

I recently took a poll on instagram on what my readers would like to see as my next blog post. It was between “depressed & stressed”. I was shocked when at the end; it was fifty percent for both. It showed me that a lot of people are undergoing not-so-pleasant situations.

No one can understand.
It’s so easy for her to judge. She doesn’t know what I’m going through.
Why is everything going so well for his family and not mine??
Why is my life so difficult??
Trust me, most of the statements & questions listed above have passed through the minds of almost everybody in the world if not all and the first thing you should know is, “THAT SITUATION YOU ARE IN, THAT CHALLENGE YOU ARE FACING IS NOT PECULIAR. COMMONISE THOSE ISSUES”. The devil has a way of magnifying issues to make you think, “oh my case is the worst” but the truth is, someone else is facing something similar, someone else has gone through that process and someone else has overcome that challenge. Open up!

The day we learn to take every statement from the Bible as an instruction is the day we find rest and solace. The Bible says in 1Thessalonians 5:16:

“Rejoice always”

Paul wrote that book and it might interest you to know that he was in the prison when he wrote that. But he told the people outside the prison to rejoice! Wow!! Paul went through a lot people. We have no excuse


The devil is too cheap. Ask yourself this question, “a man wrote a love letter to me with His own blood, covers all my imperfections, forgives me totally, LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY and He is the creator of the world. Ha-ha! Will He ever torment me?? Does He want me in this state??”


Let me correct something, God is not responsible for those things, the devil is. Start blaming the right person and take control of your life

When you were in the worst state, God sent Jesus to die for you. No greater love can be found.

Now occurrences and other happenings might have caused depression. You might have written yourself off but I tell you one thing today, “there is hope!”

Now there are so many cures for depression on the internet. However, I want to introduce you to the best cure ever!! Bestest and Greatest cure…… prepare for the great unveiling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s the proof of your salvation. God lives in us through His Spirit!!! How awesome is that?!

The Bible says our bodies are the temple of God; you need to understand this very well.


What is the greatest counter of depression?? JOY, JOY UNSPEAKABLE!!!

What is one of the fruits of the Spirit?? JOY, JOY UNSPEAKABLE!!!

Ever wondered why JOY is a fruit of the Spirit?? It is an attribute of our father!

Now say to yourself: Joy lives here!!!

You have undergone so much pain, bad occurrences; you deserve to be happy honey!!! Your daddy wants you to be happy!!! Ha-ha! The most important person in the world wants you to be happy!

We are representatives of Christ on earth {special shout out to my team (Christ representers!!!)}

Christ, our perfect example was a joyful person. I mean, amidst the opposition, Christ forged on. A depressed person would not have done that.

You are no quitter. You are an achiever, a great achiever!!! Act like it!

See yourself in that light and act like it!!

If you are saved already, Congratulations!!! You have access to the Holy Spirit. Grow with Him. He is a person not a feeling and He wants an intimate relationship with you. The Holy Spirit is a person and not a feeling, treat Him as such. He knows the mind of God, He will guide you. You can never miss it with The Holy Spirit. The most amazing thing is, He is your comforter! Nah!! There is no place here depression!!!

If you are not yet saved, all you need to do id to believe. Believe Jesus Christ came to die for you and on the third day, He rose again. Pray honestly from your heart and welcome the Holy Spirit!

Bethel music is too awesome!!!! I love this song in particular “reckless love”. There are certain lyrics that speak volumes of my father’s love to me:

“There’s no shadow you won’t light up

Mountain you won’t climb up

Coming after me

There’s no wall you won’t kick down

Lie you won’t tear down

Coming after me”

Father loves me so much, God loves me so much and that is enough. That will always be enough.

You can choose to be happy. However, Joy is your default setting!


There is only one throne in my heart and God is already there so JOY is already there!!!

God Bless you!!!

Lots of love!!!
