Feeling depressed after one started talking less

Q: I have a bad habit of talking excessively. Alhumdulilah, after I began going to a girl's madressah and we did the ahaadith about talking excessively I began to talk less. But after I began doing this I began feeling depressed. Please advise me what to do.

A: There is no need to be depressed. In fact, there is all the need to be happy that Allah Ta`aal has guided you and saved you from disasters and problems. Keep yourself occupied and don't be idle. Even if it is an occupation that is not to do with deen like washing things, cleaning up things or doing something in the garden etc. then try to do it.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
