One of the thing that each individual should be knowledgeable about when dealing with despondency is what causes it, and how should it be handled. So, it's in the best interest of each person to pay attention to the symptoms of despondency and work to address them. For example, one of the reasons why most persons struggled with the application of faith, courage, and hope in their lives circumstances is because the spiritual aspect of their lives needs strengthening. While if a person is always in pain, always moody, always have health issues etc. it's because their physical and emotional life needs attention. So in the aspect of human life which consist of body, soul, and spirit and if one is affected by some outer or inner stressful issues, it causes the others to go through the cycle of despondency.

At this moment prayer, fasting, trusting and believing that God can and will lead you safely through your circumstances can be a positive force to expel all negativities.

* Never lose hope- When a person loses hope one of the first ideas that alway comes to their mind is suicide intention, which if not renounced and address, it could materialize. Hope is the bridge that bridges the gap between your problem and you overcoming them, hope is the reason why a person wants to wake up in the morning, hope is the reason why a person wants to sleep at night, real hope is the reason why a person wants to live. Once hope is gone the spirit goes dead just awaiting the physical death the body. Try never to lose hope because all thing are possible once you believe.
