Hi everyone; It took me many years to realize that I had been wasting so much time, hope and energy seeking the answers to my mental plight somewhere "out there." If I just do well in school.... If I could just get a girlfriend.... If I could just get a good job and make enough money to be content..... If I could just get people to love and respect me.... If I could just make some friends who could look beyond their own self-centeredness to see I was drowning. Perhaps then I could be saved..... It finally dawned on me a long time ago that it isn't the world that is broken (well maybe it is, but that is another discussion!), but me. I need to be looking INSIDE to fix the problems. So yes, the genius (!) I am, I finally figured this out. But it didn't make any difference! How can you fix something when you don't have the right tools and skills? Where do you turn when even the so-called experts have no idea? I have read every self-help book on the planet. I know WHAT I am supposed to do to overcome my depression and anxiety, I just haven't a clue HOW I am supposed to do it. I hope this all makes sense to somebody!
