The way the mind interprets ourselves is huge. This is based on our past experiences, our genetics, our confidence and influences. Past experiences, and holding on to our baggage can really ruin us. Past issues can’t be ignored or just forgotten, try and you will not succeed. These issues have to be dealt with in order to move forward in life. The anxiety this will cause will ultimately hold you back in life. Let go of these burdens by getting the help you so desperately need. Whether you are angry that your parent left you, angry about childhood molestation, had a terrible divorce, lost a loved one. I encourage every person dealing or struggling with some serious issues to truly seek out the help that is needed. Talk it out or you will eventually hit that self destruct button one too many times.You have to free yourself of your anxieties, your insecurities and you will feel renewed.I found that giving my life to God and following the word of our Holy Father, makes my life fulfilled. I also have found that talking to my friends and family about my past issues, helps lighten some if the weight of the baggage I carry. I enjoy painting as a means of stress relief. I’ve also found practicing yoga to be beneficial for both my mind and body.
