I Don't Know the Cure, But Here Is How You Can Manage Your Depression or Anxiety

The weight of the world feels like it's on your shoulders the moment you wake up. Every thing that can go wrong seems like it always does, and more often to you. Hurtful things people say stick to you for days while nice things never seem to have any affect and you don't know why. On top of that, you can't seem to stop your thoughts from compounding, flying around your mind distractingly no matter how hard you try and it increases your heart rate to the point you want to cry but on the outside you look fine, so no one ever asks what's wrong. Even if they did, you wouldn't know what to tell them because there's nothing anyone's ever done to fix you. All you want is internal relief, but it's nowhere in sight.

If you've suffered from anxiety and depression, then everything I described is all too familiar to you, and then some. It's a living hell you did nothing to deserve to suffer through, and every day is a struggle to make it through without breaking down in which many times, you just can't help it. 

But you can help it, and without drugs. 

These battles may not completely go away, but there is way to manage them so they're not dominating your life, and it requires you to follow four rules on an every day, on-going basis until they become habit. 

1. Put these emotional and mental states into perspective. I've come to understand depression as being chained to some unfortunate past experience that I never let go of, and anxiety to be the exact opposite, future experiences I'm consumed with preventing without a definite plan on how. Putting these into perspective is the first step to giving your mental health less power over you than it already has and makes step two possible. 

2. Don't feed into it. You do this by bringing yourself into the present moment, whatever that is, and denying the past its power over your 'right now' as well as consciously choosing to forgo the burden of having your future completely figured out and in your control. You can affect your future by setting a plan and taking the right steps in every day life, but there are some things that will never be in your control, and that's okay. Up until this point, you've survived everything that has been thrown at you which means you're actually better at this than you thought. Anything that is not happening at that very second needs to get pushed down on your priority list, nipped in the bud, and you need to redirect your attention back to the current moment. 

3. Speak life into your spirit. Anxiety and depression comes in two forms; messages and visuals. You're remembering or forseeing something negative while narrating an equivalently negative message to yourself as you're trying to function in the real world. The counter is the thoughts you push into your mind. Affirmations work wonders. I have two books full of them you can purchase here, or you can create your own and make it your business to rewrite your subconscious messages with them throughout the day. Yes people may think you're going crazy if they see you talk to yourself, but it's better for them to think that than for you to let your negative inner voices actually drive you crazy, right?

4. Protect your energy like your life depends on it, because it does. Too often we operate from a place of what battles we're capable of winning, instead of focusing on the war for our mental health we can only win by avoiding battles that won't serve us.

Someone has a nasty attitude with you, and you immediately think of how they don't know just how much nastier you can get instead of how they're only inviting you into their world of inner turmoil that made them act that way towards you in the first place. So the reward of denying that invite to battle them is that their toxic energy stays outside while your inner peace goes unscathed for the rest of the day. It's not a sign of weakness to choose your battles wisely, it's a strategic war tactic that winners practice. You have enough obstacles with managing anxiety and depression as it is, you don't need to allow outsiders to become additional ones.

If you want additional ways to protect your energy, I have 12 that I personally use that have turned my life around since I committed to them that is completely free with any book purchase from this website or you can get it here. You are worth the investment, but more importantly, you are worth the effort. You can and will control your anxiety and depression if you make up your mind to. That little voice that just whispered that it's not that easy or that you can't is a great place to start. YOU tell it the truth, right now, that you WILL!

  • Young man I hope you get this…..I have been seeing your videos on Facebook……I didn’t know how to contact you………Here is something I never heard you speak on and this is my story …..I am a 57 year old retired Marine Master Sergeant…..I walked out of my marriage at 48 after I sent my last child to college……I had been UN happy for many years but because of my 3 kids 2 girls and 1 son……I put aside my personal goals/desires/and feelings because I was not going to have any other man around my children and I knew that they deserved a solid home and up bringing….There was only 1 physical altercation in 35 years and only 1 affair that I know of…….the physical abuse happened around year 4 and my son never saw it, there were no daily arguments and only at the very end did the kids realize that there was a problem but 2 were already in college….Now here I am 57 married when I was 19 yrs old but NY shit has flipped flopped…….Things that I should have been doing at 19, I started doing when I was 48 that is when I went to my 1st concert, 50 when I went to a strip club and sex store……I did my dirt too but nit with his best friend and surely not in the same town, Yes I did the tit for tat Thang for years once he started it, from the outside looking in we were the epitome of the perfect family we went to marriage counseling through the church and outside the church, I left at 48 2010 came back cause of church folk so 2012-2015…..left for good got the divorce in 2017……..You needed the background info……Now I am self sufficient making about $90,000 yearly, I could have left anytime I wanted to……..So now all I want to do is party, travel and want some company and a little action but I don’t ever want to be told what I can and cannot do or wear……..for the 1st time in my life I have no curfew act…….I am not looking for a husband…..Is it wrong to still want attention, I am ok with having just friends…..Now I know these friends just want to fuck and that’s kinda all I want too but my issue is that most if these men Black (cause I don’t do white not ever even though these are the ones with money) they just don’t have much to offer except the Dick……Is it wrong to at least expect them to pay for nice dinners Especially the ones that I do get intimate with or expect gifts at birthdays and Holidays?……..Is this ok to expect while in the friend zone permanently? By the way my eldest daughter says that the friend you continuously get intimate with is called (Friend with Benefits)……Honestly my kids are teaching me now…….I believe I may have stumped you on this one…….ADVICE PLEASE
