Changing From A Tense To A Peaceful Life.
From the age of 12 I suffered from social anxiety. I had a fear of people, high pressure, poor self-esteem and bad moods. This year my anxiety increased and turned into a bad exercise. All the time I was feeling bad and my body was tense. So was my thoughts and brain. I never had real friends and I never believed I would ever change. I kept thinking negatively and every minute I would be thinking about the pressure, even when I was alone in the bathroom. I was always nervous.
I looked for ways to change the situation, and when I went with my mother to the library, I found the book “The Secret”. At first I read it and did not believe it could bring me peace. When I started to believe and experience it, I felt something amazing. My body was calm and I felt an amazing feeling that I had not felt in 3 years. My great fear was that I would not be able to maintain the feeling for long, that I would return to those pressing thoughts and stressful life. So I forgot about The Secret book and tried to find other ways to change the situation. I always knew all along that my thoughts had great power. But nothing worked.
When I was in the bookstore two weeks ago, I found another book from The Secret series that illustrates real life events and stories that have happened to people. At that moment I knew that if they changed their lives, then I could too. So from that moment on I tried to convey to myself the feeling that I was already calm. I thought as if I was calm and did actions that made me feel calm.
Every day I was thankful for three good things that had happened to me that day and I wept with joy that I was calm. I tried to use all the tools I had and I would write down things I learned from the book to feel calm.
1. I used imagination.
2. I gave gratitude every day.
3. My thoughts, actions and feelings were calm and made me clear that I was already relaxed.
As of today I have been feeling peaceful for a full month and it is awesome !! I have no words to describe what happened to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thousands of miracles have happened to people and it is all thanks to you! Thank you for saving my life, yes, that is exactly how I feel, exactly in those words.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
