Hey Farmer man 🌿 readers and all 👋
It's really good hearing you're still working. Yip a brave face doesn't mean it's good underneath all the time does it.
I just dropped by to remind you you're cared about and that we and I'm sure many readers are also cheering for you. You're not alone in this.
I started a post to you early this morning. A few happenings all good glad to say and till now haven't been able to finish. So when it's completed I'll pop it up and some bits are in this post.
What gives me hope and faith in you is you pulled through your probably darkest times in your life over a period of mths. Long ones too as you well know poor fella.
You can and I believe will again. It's important to not believe depression that'll have you thinking you can't.
Believing in yourself and abilities is good. I think opens our minds making room for constructive helpful thoughts opposed to negative painful ones.
A thought alone can't hurt us.
Our emotional reaction to it can and often does.
We can learn as I believe we're all capable of to direct our thinking to how we choose to feel. Not an overnight job but we gain strength back by the more we put in.
I'm wondering if you feel it'd be worth a chat to your GP Anthony about exploring choices for something to help with the depression. It wouldn't have to be permanent but potentially could make it easier to get through this.
As you'd know our minds become so consumed and smothered with depression making it very hard but doable to have other thought on how to get better.
By gently allowing yourself to think past the first thought that lands helps no end. We tend to believe it.
Self backing's what we need at anytime especially now.
If we do the opposite to what depression says we gain traction because we allow good thought to counteract negative. A lovely girl from these forums 💙 psychologist told her. Brilliant!
So by letting this apply to a down thought by thinking of the opposite. EG. I can't get better...I can get better... can lead to further thought along those lines which I've experienced in the past and just yesterday. I was getting pretty fired up being down hard and fast, it gave me enough lift to pull out.
Ok I'll be back Anthony. Hold on matey and don't forget we can get control over this. It is in us!
Thoughts and care to your family too ⚘🌿☺
