Peace it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of these things and still be calm in your heart.
Dear depression and anxiety, when I met you I didn’t know your pain,k I didn’t know your name, you showed up in my life in the form of “bad nerves,” and I trembled and my whole body began to shake, at the very thought of your coming with abundant force into my life. You decided to rock my world with being psychotic and getting your whole entire life episode.
Listen, You come with a massive vengeance, very unexpectedly and you wanted to take everything that I mattered, away from me! You are so much more than “bad nerves,” because you literally got on my nerves! You refused to let me go, you grabbed me up in your arms for months, relentlessly hurting my spirit, mind, body, and soul. You wanted me to find the truth beyond your plan of massive destruction, disguised as stress, trauma, and a divorce.
You watched as my marriage crumbled before my very eyes, depression and anxiety having you show up in my life is not a surprise. I had to deal with self-defeating thought matter, but the day changed when I realized that you thought I did not matter. And Girl, I had to get out of the passenger seat of this fast speeding car, and finally take control because my feelings and emotions belong to only me, for me, by me, and I have to take ownership over you, so you will not have the audacity to move and further with your plan of defeat.
By the loving grace of God and HIS beloved son Jesus, I am finally feeling mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically strong to thankfully let you know that I a totally aware of your presence in my whole being, and I will no longer allow you to steal my joy. Depression and anxiety it is time for you to exit stage left! I am making the curtain call to return to the stage that you pulled out from under my feet. You will no longer define my life or the way that I choose to live. I choose to live and not just exist! I choose to love openly, and honestly, I choose to be empowered, I choose this “new normal,” the next chapter, and a very new beginning, new independence to reach a higher heights with my higher power, and to continue to fight to press through, to pray through, to pull through, and move forward to life, hope, and prosperity. I understand that healing is a process, and it is important to heal in the process!
