Men dealing with Anxiety and depression
Dark days and stormy nights, dealing with anxiety and depression can be very debilitating. There is nothing fun about having to deal with these issues, however, there is hope.
I fought hard each day trying to battle the rage that was going on inside my head. I felt like my life was spinning out of control at times. But there was something inside me that knew I could get better. I can learn to manage my thoughts and my emotions.
It is difficult to image relief from anxiety and depression when deep in the depths of the suffering. Yet, I knew there was something I could do, I just didn't know what.
I came to discover something very profound. I mean, it was profound for me, perhaps not for most people. I had this moment where I found myself seeing people enjoying themselves, having a good time. I also wanted that. But in order for that to happen, I had to do something. But what, I thought.
I remember something I read a long time ago. It was like the moment was right for me to understand something that was implanted in me years ago, but I must not have been ready to fully understand it.
There before me, as I looked into my mirror, I began to notice something. It wasn't my eyes or my face that I noticed. It was what was being processed as I looked into the mirror and seeing my face and my eyes.
What was doing this processing?
How was it doing it?
I realized everything I was looking at was being processed by my brain. All of my thoughts. All of my thinking. I discovered I was battling my brain. The gray matter between my eyes was controlling all of me. And in fact, it is controlling you too.
Not so profound? Well, I eventually developed what I call the STRONG Method. I shared this method in a recent podcast interview I was featured on and I like to share it with you today.
If you are battling anxiety and depression, I encourage you to listen to this episode. Your life is worth it. It just might be what changes your life too.
