Cristiano Ronaldo is Depressed

Five and a half years ago, I saw an article on Sportskeeda.com stating that Christiano Ronaldo was suffering from depression. It said:

“So, Cristiano Ronaldo is suffering from a bout of depression. Wow, does he have reasons to be depressed? He is one of the wealthiest and most well-known footballers in the world, has one of the hottest girlfriends ever and scores more goals in a season than most players do in their career.

And yet he’s sad. The media frenzy regarding his ‘sadness’ has reached epic proportions. Everyone has their own theory. He’s not happy with the money, one newspaper says. He’s not happy with the Real Madrid management, another report states. Some sources say he’s depressed about the fact that  Andres Iniesta won the UEFTA Best Player in Europe award when he deserved it. Whatever the reason is, the fact is that one of modern football’s best players is unhappy with life and no one can seem to understand why. Jokes and memes are being made every day on this subject. It’s true what they say, ‘One man’s sorrow is a million men’s joy.’”

Yep, depression is no respecter of persons and will attack anybody at any time for any reason.

Christians are just as susceptible because the bible says,

“The devil roams around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)

So, how can we guard against falling into this pit of despair? There are many ways, but 3 good ones are:

  1. Recognising the fact that you are vulnerable if you don’t keep yourself in check.
  2. Maintaining a spirit of thankfulness and being grateful for all you have.
  3. Keeping your heart free from bitterness and unforgiveness.

  1. Wonderful. I’m so happy when I read words acknowledging that Christians suffer from depression too.

    Here’s to all those people (who don’t know what they’re talking about) who say, “If you would just give your problem to the Lord, He would take it away.”

  2. That article you quoted shows the ignorance of people. Depression, like you said, is not a respecter of persons. It doesn’t matter if you “have everything going for you,” have a million dollars, are beautiful, are famous, or anything else. None of those factors are instant depression remedies nor do they make you untouchable when the devil comes lurking, just the same as they wouldn’t mean you’d be immune to any other medical condition.

    • Hi Mia, yes that’s true. It’s sad that so many of us hanker after being like them even though their lives are in a worse state than our own. The grass is never greener on the other side. Thanks for adding your thoughts.
