I’ve noticed many people on the internet who are feeling called to religious life get refused because of depression or some other mental illness.
I have met people and have friends who are married or in serious relationships and their mental health does not affect their relationships- the relationships help if anything.
Personally, I’ve dealt with bouts of feeling depressed and although I have never been diagnosed with depression I would feel my mood would prevent me from entering religious life. (I’m not sure what my vocation is anymore)
So what is a vocation for someone with depression? Generally speaking, this isn’t just about me.
I can’t do single life forever, things have to change.
