Hello. I'm new here. I just want to wish everyone a beautiful day. Love yourself, and believe in yourself. I'm fighting depression and so grateful I found this support group. I do not want to waste another day absorbed with "self"

God, I offer myself to thee....to build with me and do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of bondage of self, that I may better do thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of thy power, thy love. And the Way of life. May I do thy will always!

Thank you! Right back atcha! What a beautiful thing for my ears to hear. Wow! Thanks. I can cry. Only wish you knew me so I can really believe it. But I'd like to think of myself as a good person. There's so much violence in the world..I question some people and why??? The news is very disturbing. I think if we all loved more there would be so much more peace in earth. Less addictions, pain and suffering. I don't know. That's all pretty deep stuff.

Thank you! I would like that! appropriate safe, are you in Nj? I have to be careful with info, as you do on the internet. I would rather just phone calls. This texting is for the birds. Lol how about kids? Age? I'm so alone. Mostly because I don't leave this big empty house. :( therapy today. Yay if I show up...

I have therapy today too!! Let's make a deal... I'll go if you go.

But here's a bit about me.. I'm from Michigan. I'm a college-aged student, so no kids. But still oh-so-willing to have mature conversations about what's happening in the minds of the anxious/depressed! I want to help you not feel alone.

It's all good. I have college aged kids and anxiety runs high for them as well. Coping skills help. Counting down instead of up. Yes..I'm drying my hair. Going to therapy! Please go:) xo

Good word! God bless you in your journey! Do you volunteer? That helps a lot w getting away from self. Also, I take magnesium and ginseng to calm my body, mind and soul. They also get rid of those sticky negative thoughts and feelings that get me down. Yes, they really work. There are so many things to help us on this earth. Also, I get outside, breathe deep in creation, touch the earth and look at the stars. That helps me remember the bigness of life and the constant faithfulness of it all. Also I meditate on wise words and stretch myself thru learning, art and groups like meetups, studies and classes. Anxiety is so much more a problem than it used to be, some of spiritual, some of it physical. <3 Lifting you up to the Maker for peace and joy!
