“Truly, I know this is where the great security lies, being responsible for myself. If all I did was to sit around and say poor me, and woe is me, I am not only making life tough on myself but I am also making life miserable for those around me. This is why I, as a writer and therapist, and one who has been depressed, know that it is only when I get moving, even though I felt like death, that I will began to feel better. I will now make myself feel better. I want to enjoy this world. I am tired of the pain of blaming anyone for my problems because no one is making me live in the problem. No one is making me feel worthless. I will live in the solution from now on. The solution for me is working my Twelve Step program of recovery and I am now willing to face the enemy and start the changing process.
Faith can move mountains. Ask and you shall receive. Knock and the door shall be opened unto you. I believe this.
