Are You A Warrior or a Worrier?
What is depression? What causes it? What can we do about it? I want to share what I have learned from over fifteen years of conquering my demons. I've even befriended some of them.
I get a thrill out of helping people and making people laugh, so I thought I might share my experience, and maybe it will help some of you. In my opinion, there is still a stigma attached to depression. Very few people want to acknowledge it, until it is far too late. Fortunately, I am like a sledgehammer. I enjoy breaking barriers and talking about the things we should never talk about.
Yet, I digress. Here is a link to the introduction if you would like to read that first: Do You Feel Disconnected Lately?
Sneak Preview: The Upcoming Chapters will include:
Make New Friends - Rediscover Communication
Let's face it, most of your friends are assholes. How many of them have let you down, betrayed you or just weren't there for you when you needed them most? Yet you continue to allow them back in your life? Learn how to delete them. It is time for a clean slate!
Step away from the fridge! Yes, sensible nutrition is crucial to mental and physical wellness. Don't worry! You'll be surprised how easy it is to eat a little better.
This one is rather involved, and it's the hardest concept to grasp. If you survive it you will benefit greatly. I did. I figured I should try to simplify it as much as possible and refer to it throughout the other chapters. It's also a great way to make my posts look long and important, instead of just posting one pic and shouting, Hey, Upvote meee!
Bag of Tricks
Do you believe in magic? I developed a bag of magic tricks that helped me quite a bit. Rather than ignore the paranormal, why not embrace it? Stop pretending you didn't see that large shadow creep across your bedroom wall the other night. Kidding. You're going to enjoy this chapter.
- Be Selfish
It is time for you to start caring about yourself. Depression is not like a broken leg that you can point to. No one cares about your depression. This is probably my favorite chapter. Being selfish for awhile can be good for you!
- Explore Your Inner Liberal
We all have it. Our "inner liberal" is the compassionate baby Jesus or Buddha within us. Remember, the revolution will be a conscious evolution.
- Give a fuck
Do something! Of all the things that crush our spirit as a species on planet Earth, apathy is the number one cancer facing humanity today. All life on earth is affected by human apathy. Since the 1960's ended, over 98% of human beings suffer from apathy. No one gives a fuck anymore. I made up all my own statistics for this chapter. You're gonna love it!
- Thought Control
Sings: We don't need no education... but we do need to control our own thoughts. Learn How to Stop Racing Thoughts! I'll show you how I learned to become a Master of My Own Mind. You will also learn how to become your own thought police! You might even earn a badge at this end of this lesson, which is good for talking your way out speeding tickets. Cops love this one!
- Laugh More
I am sure we have all heard the phrase, Laughter is the Best Medicine, right? That is why I asked my doctor to wear a funny clown costume before surgically removing my cancer. They'll do anything for a buck.
- Avoid the News
Turn off your TV and Turn on your Wife, oops, I mean Life. Much of our stress comes from the state of the world, whether it is politics, society, crime or the fact that so many stupid people are famous. All kinds of things might trigger us. You're gonna want to read the heck out of this chapter.
Couch potatoes might hate this one, and most won't even bother to read it. However, light exercise does include walking to the kitchen for a late night snack. :p
- Learn Something New
The brain rots when we stop learning. This chapter could be called, "Find a new hobby", but if you learn to play guitar, write a song, or paint, you probably won't call it a hobby. After reading this, you might even learn how to design a tattoo.
Volunteer for something. Pay it forward. Find a cause that you believe in and become a productive member of society. Sounds impossible, right? Heh. We shall see.
- Entertain Yourself
If all else fails, it might be time to realize you're a big baby that needs constant gratification.
Let's talk about sex, baby. What is Tantric Sex or Sex Magick, anyway? What is the true meaning of Namaste? This chapter is a life-changing exercise that teaches you how to respect yourself and your significant other on a deeper, spiritual level. But be warned, you cannot experience sacred sex and settle for anything less. Batteries not included. :p
