The difference between those suffering from anxiety/depression, and those who are winning the fight from these dark shadows, is awareness and acceptance. Only when you are aware of the problem and accept the hard truths about it, can you then have a foundation to start from, to keep fighting another day, and to become victorious!
I’ve been taking some time off from writing, mainly because I got sick. Starting to heal up and feel better, and am working on my mind as well. I came across this video and thought I’d share. This particular video has an exceptionally calming narrator. Perhaps one of the more pleasant guides Meditation voices I’ve heard. Hope this helps some of you tonight.
It’s easy in this day and age of social media, especially Facebook, with so much news and information, real or fake, good or bad, helpful or distracting, to get stuck on stupid. There is just too much information that streams through while you are supposedly “keeping in touch” with people via social media. What you often keep in touch with is an overload of information, an overload of negative news and then with that, an overload of anxiety and stressful thoughts. It’s easy to get stuck and feel mentally paralyzed in fear, anger, or numbness.
Try to be mindful of how much time you spend allowing yourself to be open to so much information. I have this bad habit as well. As if I need to fill my head with more negativity! I’ve just recently learned to throw out negative thoughts that constantly stream into my mind for no good reason! The last thing I need is more fuel for them!
Whatever you see or hear, process what you’re feeling, but don’t get stuck. Stay focused, move forward, push on, and if possible, take action for or against what has you potentially stuck, especially if it can help in a positive way.
Exhausted from getting lots of Vitamin D today. Still wanted to share something I felt was important. Get your daily Vitamin D, preferably from the direct source, otherwise make sure have a supplement! Read about its benefits and the dangers of deficiency HERE.
All day today, my empath self completely took over. With all the things happening, especially with the attack in Syria, I have been feeling the weight of the world. Praying for everyone suffering, crying when no one could see me, coming home and sitting in a catatonic state just trying not to slip further into depression.
Some days are like this. I don’t have the answers to my questions. All I can do is love. Love, even in the condition I’m in at the moment. Hug my family a little tighter. Appreciate those around me, especially those who are also empaths whose hearts are breaking in unison with mine.
Naysayers will say that it doesnt matter, but I’m here to tell you, keep your hearts strong. Love is the most powerful energy of all. It is the most powerful strength we humans have. That energy will effect the rest of the world. It is all a ripple effect.
Believe me, I know it feels useless, and it’s so easy to feel helpless in these times. But collectively, our energies of love, no matter what condition we are in, makes its way around. We are all connected. So keep loving, everyone, no matter what condition you find yourself in.
Sometimes the best thing you can do for your mental health is just stop and rest. To try to force anything during that time causes more breaks in the defenses. Not my best day but feeling better now. Tomorrow will be better. Time to relax, reset, and pray clearly with my heart while my mind sorts itself out. Be thankful for those who love you enough to allow you to do this and support you during this time.
