If who the Son set free is free indeed, why do I still struggle to break free from the chains of inadequacy. Why do I still struggle with fear, depression, and anxiety…Why is it so easy to believe that I’ll never be good enough, But what if I could believe something different? What if I could measure up?
It Feels Exhausting Getting out of bed is hard. Taking a shower is even harder, and I never feel like I have enough energy to do anything. I feel drained all the time. I dread simple tasks and don’t feel like doing any of them. I don’t feel like doing anything. I oversleep and overeat…
Therapy is often recommended for anyone struggling with anxiety and depression. But the question is: does therapy actually work, and is therapy really worth it? I think many people walk into therapy with unrealistic expectations because they were told: “They need to get help,” or “They need to go to therapy.”
On this journey to overcoming anxiety and depression, the biggest factor that has stopped me from making change in my life is the fact that I did not want to change. I did not want to be healed. I did not want to overcome this.
