Abraham Lincoln suffered from depression.
He experienced several election defeats, two bankruptcies, a nervous breakdown, and the death of his fiancée before becoming President of the United States.
(Breakdown of successes and failures here.)
He grew from his failures, a daunting list, and at the age of 51 summoned courage and strength to unify our country and change the course of history.
Remember, you are greater than the terrible things that happen to you.
