Wiping out fear

Danger is real. Fear is a choice. I’m working on not giving power to that sense of something is really wrong.

Fear means we are thinking about what hasn’t come, which may never come. The unknown is in God’s hands. We can recall fond memories of the past and see that we got through all of that. Start from here and now and live in the present.

Yup 😊 trying so hard to live in now. Intrusive thoughts are plaguing. Deep breathing. Not believing negative thoughts may be key.

Seems like a lesson from life, telling us , live the now to live!..putting us back on the spot rather being lost in the past or future, depression/ anxiety....right here..right now!..breathe in, breathe out..thats all it takes..

Thank you so much for the reminder bro! Today I am with my deep slow breathing, trying my best in this life,... this gift that I hope and pray I’m doing good enough at...not listening to the negative unless it’s a truth I need to do something about...Otherwise letting it go,... going with the flow...

Yeah believe me I’m really struggling with it. For some reason (from I think a self esteem issue)im thinking others are thinking bad of me when it’s my guilt from mistakes and vices...im beating myself up... when in reality no one takes time to pick me out to think about me...and as long as I’m trying I want to give myself a break and break the bad habit of negativity. Lulu I’m so sorry you are struggling too. I’m here for you! What’s going on? ❤️ Good to read you like always.

Starrlight , please , please stop beating yourself up , it is so sad when I read you doing this to yourself :-(

Up theirs ( other people ) you have nothing to prove , you are who you are , you do the best you can and if that is not good enough for anyone then they are not worth knowing !

Me I am really struggling it is a year since that pneumonia and mentally I have got worse , seriously worse , I feel I am hanging on by a thread or shall we say finger nails , I am trying so hard like you , so hard to get the help I desperately need and getting no where

I have days more days than none days where I am starting to feel I can't carry on like this :-(

So not good at all x

It will happen for us when it’s time, I know, things are getting way out of hand for me too but I don’t want to see my therapist and just recently have decided I no longer feel comfortable with taking medication. I will try to ease up on myself, really will try, thanks Lulu ! I just hope it’s time very soon that we see improvements... after every difficulty comes ease... I hear you and I really wish I could give you an in life real gentle hug!

I don’t know how it feels to have pneumonia but I helped my son through it and it was scary... I wish you healing of the trauma.

My son just told me we have the perfect life because we are together. ❤️ I love that, thought I’d share.

I suggest you or anyone to look up Dr Amen.... trust me you will see a big difference quick just reading his website.

“Danger is real, fear is a choice” I’m liking that.
