Oh Sunshine!!!! I so understand how hard and hopeless life in general can be!!
I found this site, looking for a helping hand for my depression. My meds stay the same but I was having these low's that were starting to control me. I read a lot about depression here, joined this group, got The Spark Book - I got the audio version and put it on my i pod.
One day, Not long ago. I was walking along and I heard him say, "How supportive are you to friends, do you encourage others, when the fall short of their goals what do you say to them?
HMMMM, Well, I encourage, I hug, I cry and laugh with friends here , with my Daughters, and even to strangers on the street at times.
Next he said "Now, say and do those things to yourself, write yourself a note a letter?"
It feels a tad strange at first, but over the coarse of a few days, something clicked in my head. I instantly have all these negative things I say to myself when I mess up, and or discouraging things I tell myself about reaching for goals.
Anyways, so so long. I have been doing this, AND it's working..............Amazing.
It's not a textbook example but I blogged 1 letter to myself. Please check it out and see if you can see yourself in it all??
