In part one, I attempted telling YOU the many roots of depression and I also promised to take YOU through the journey on ways life throws anxious moments at US…
Life has ways of creating anxious moments in us….
It might be from
- Waiting for results of something
- Waiting for Interview
- Waiting for examination result
- Waiting for Court case
- wishing for a better life
- Monthly visitor that refuses to show up
- Pregnancy Expectation
- Insecurity around your children
- Unsure future
- Praying for flight to land safely
- Shame of reproach from what you have done wrong
- Facing a panel
- Not sure of the next meal etc.
The truth is that everyone of us do feel anxious at one point or the other in our lives, I mean no one can out-rightly claim freedom from being ANXIOUS in life. I remember a moment in my life I felt so anxious about the result of my final exams in the university…. Oops
That period was a killer period for me because I didn’t want to hear go come…I was passing through a particular challenge in my life when I wrote those papers. I could not really concentrate, but I had to write that exams. But thank God it came out clean. I am simply saying that if I have to tell YOU my challenges in life, we won’t finish up here. Now, may I let YOU know that YOU can stay in Control of your LIFE and MIND through YOUR anxious moments?
You see, YOU are more powerful than the things YOU allow to happen to YOU. I remember one time in my life .It was a moment where if I didn’t have up to a certain amount in my pocket or bank ,I felt angry and moody…and that moodiness would rub off on everyone and everything around me. It was a very tall order for me. It took my pastor to follow me up and reshape my mind…because he discovered it was my MINDSET. That’s why today, most things I enjoy doing is to help people reshape and recondition their MINDS. It is when your mind controls YOU that DEPRESSION sets in…but when YOU are in control of Your mind, YOU will determine what YOU accommodate per time. Honestly speaking, there are certain things, people, places and events I won’t allow around me for certain personal reasons…..I need to keep my mind safe, secure and tidy.
YOU can do same…It’s about choices….
I like to stop this part here by dropping this in your spirit
“YOUR MIND IS A STORE HOUSE, YOU MUST BE IN CHARGE OF THE KEY IN ORDER TO PERMIT WHAT GOES IN THERE.”…GLORIA ROBSON
Stay positive, stay in control.
In part 3, I will show you ways to stay out of and manage the feelings of depression…
I remain your “YOU” FACTOR Coach and friend…
