There is a time and place for depression, but it is not intended to define us or to be a permanent place to live. In the pit we come face to face with ourselves. Questions to ask are: do I want to be this way? What can I accept? What do I need to accept that won’t change? You see, the way from the pit is to do what I can and let God do what He can. God is not going to do it all. Do your part.
