Is there any value to conflict, depression or anxiety?

Depression, anxiety and conflict are often vehicles that draw attention to changes that need to be made in one's life. They point to what isn't working and to those things that we have the power to change. In order to gain this direction it is important to take time to pay them attention rather then ignore them or be too quick to medicate them.
