My Battle With Fear

If you don’t mind, I’d like to tell you a little story about my battle with the darkness of fear and depression.

It was so bad for me that depression, anxiety, and stress had taken complete control over me. This state lasted nearly a decade. I was suicidal for most of that time. I had always suffered from depression (40 years), but the last ten of those years were the worst.

It all started to change when I was riding my very powerful sports motorbike from Noosa to the Gold Coast. The ride was about 2.5 to 3 hours by freeway.

Stress, Anxiety & Depression

There are three states we can find ourselves in – the past, the present, or the future.

(The following description is based on having negative thoughts, as having positive thoughts won’t normally be a problem.)

When we spend too much time in the future, we worry, this brings about some degree of stress and anxiety because we FEAR a potentially negative outcome. If we spend too much time in this state, our stress can be debilitating, and the repercussions can be lethal at the extreme. In the less extreme, being a worrier, or stressful, can give us a very unpleasant 20, 30, 40 or 50 years of life. Continuous and long term stress is a habit. Continue reading

The Meaning Of Life Stuff

Angel

I am sure that we’ve all been through hard times.  At times we feel that life is against us, that perhaps God is against us!  We feel that maybe we have done something in this, or in a previous life, that has come back to bite us in the butt. We must be paying for past sins.  After all, we’re not bad people, right?  So why are we having such a hard time?

We can go years feeling like this.  For some people, it’s a lifetime of pain and misery.  But why?  We don’t know.  So we suffer in silence.  Sometimes not in silence.  We fight it every day.  We get angry, maybe bitter, stressed, depressed, then resigned, perpetuating our pain and suffering.  But why?

Thoughts Have Power

Eighteen months ago I was homeless. I had no hopes, no job, no money, no resources…NOTHING.

One thing I did have though, was me, I had my mind, my thoughts. I didn’t allow myself to feel sorry for myself and drown in self pity. I was determined to change things for the better and to take steps so that this wouldn’t happen to me again. Continue reading
