And just that realisation alone was very powerful for me to accept that it wasn’t like I, you know, I didn’t have any hope i was i was doomed to this destiny the rest of my life.
And, you know, that was it.
That was the first like, just subtle thing, but it really helped me kind of understand the problem and be able to get over it.
The second, like key thing was the was the living in the moment, just accepting what’s in front of you right now.
Because a lot of people are worried about what’s going to happen tomorrow.
They’re stressing about the next day or, you know, their job or their girlfriend or what’s going to happen next week.
And all the projections of of your thoughts into the future is actually what causes anxiety.
And then, you know, if you’re worrying if you’re dwelling on the past resenting things in the past, that’s actually what causes depression.
But for me, in the beginning, it was a lot of projecting into the future and the stressing out and thinking I had schizophrenia and all these other things and, you know, just calming myself and living right now and just seeing whatever is In front of me is the moment.
That was one of the biggest things in the beginning that really changed my perspective on things.
Yeah, I mean, it’s, it’s so interesting.
I mean, I think
I think, you know, going into therapy is great for the reason that you mentioned, to, like, remove that, that stigma or even just like kind of, not necessarily put a label on it, but at least kind of know what you’re working with.
So like, for me, when I was facing social anxiety, same thing, I had just gone through my whole life and being like, wow, I’m some freak, like, I am some, like moral failure.
I’m, like, super messed up.
