some observations
Sun, 11-25-2012 - 11:06am

Hello All;

I would like to share something that I discovered about feeling down and depression and feeling bad about ourselves.. I know that there are different kinds of depression but the one I suffer from is situational and lack of good esteem at times.. Well of course I was listening to this natural practioner and he was saying and I sort of knew this that we sabatogue ourselves sometimes.. . I mean I do it all the time thinking that I am not good enough for this or that.. but I really am. Its the old tapes playing in my head from bad experiences.. Now I am working on getting rid of the old tapes everyday and creating more positive tapes which say I am good and good enough for this or that...

Like when I see a job that I think I shouldnt apply for because I am not good enough for it or something I think is out of my reach but that isnt true. So I am going to try very hard everyday to keep moving in a more positive direction and work on getting rid of the old bad tapes in my head and know that I am good enough and worth enough for whatever comes along.

any thoughts??

((freeatlast)) How wonderful, good ideas! You should write a book. After all the posts you have written on here over the years, I believe you are more than capable of writting a positive inspirational book for people who struggle with depression!! What do you think? Love, Heidi

ha Heidi.. I could write a book for sure.. I always thought my life could be an HBO Movie .. Spike Lee would direct it.. I do and have had a colorful life as they say.

lately though I am a bit overwhelmed with things living in a semi quasi city with an aging mom who needs alot of care and lots of traffic and I am now thinking if I knew someone I would love to move to New Mexico or if not maybe back out to the country.. I feel sort of worn out living where I am due to the Hurricane and other factors.. Maybe near a nice museum where I could work and some parks and some hills and towns and stores and I know a place like that further out where I live..

take care
