Souls on a spiritual journey often have to face the dragon of depression and suicide.
If you’ve moved in spiritual circles you’ll have noticed that spiritual journeyers often battle depression and suicide, or are diagnosed with other so-called mental or psychiatric illnesses.
In fact, you often see this in people who start any kind of personal development journey… so why does it happen?
