3 things to give up to be happy: Part 1

September 9, 2016 by

Life is a dynamic and creative experience. The insights here are designed to help you to have more choice and control over that experience.

I have created a short series of videos that offer insight into some of the barriers to happiness. I have called them: 3 things to give up to be happy. Here is part 1

I believe that a good goal to carry in your backpack as you move along your life path is that of being happy. Why not? We all reach the final destination, no exceptions, so it makes sense to me to try and have a happy journey.  To be able to say, well I enjoyed that!

There are barriers to happiness that are pretty powerful when they have a free hand. But they are not inevitable and they are not invincible. All that is needed to combat them is a little insight and a little motivation.

Our not so realistic reality

Not so real reality

Not so real reality

The basis of any anxiety or panic problem is a personal belief about something that in reality is not true. Whatever your individual fear may be, the chances are that it is completely illogical and not at all rooted in real facts. Living a life based entirely on thoughts and feelings which we know don’t reflect reality is one of the strangest experiences a person can have, and yet so many of us live this way every day, sometimes without even realizing they’re wrong.

Myself, I could say with total conviction that I know my anxious thoughts are incorrect. My logical brain is well aware that a panic attack will do me no harm; I’ve had more than enough to factually confirm that. However, there is still that thought, a voice so to speak, which convinces me to avoid any situation that could cause a panic attack because there is always a “what if?”. This makes my anxiety very difficult to explain to others, and I know I’m not alone. People will say “there’s nothing to worry about, you’ll be fine” and you can’t help but answer “I know I will”. They ask why you’re so scared if you know you’re going to be safe, and unfortunately you’re left with no real answer. It is simply a feeling which guides you through your day, and although this may only make up 1% of your thoughts, that 1% is stronger than all of your logical thoughts combined.

It seems mad, on paper, to allow something you know is wrong to dictate everything you do. From what you eat, to where you go, to who you go there with, this one small sensation, which tells you that maybe this time will be so much worse than all the others, is in control of your life. It doesn’t take long to collect a full repertoire of symptoms and side effects of anxiety, from heart palpitations to nausea and full panic attacks. You become familiar with each one, you’ve experienced them all at their very worst and still survived to tell the tales, but still you continue to avoid and fear situations which may cause them again, all because of one tiny voice.

Imagine a world where this voice, this feeling, is the minority. Where you consider that maybe there is a risk, a small “what if?”, but you don’t allow it to control you because you truly do believe that those anxious thoughts are nothing but lies. Simply knowing that your paranoid brain is wrong is just step one, and while it’s an excellent step, it doesn’t change the fact that there is still a part of you which refuses to commit to the belief entirely. There is so much more freedom and liberation which comes with fully accepting and internalising the idea that these thoughts you have are only there to hold you back, and in no way reflect what life is really like. You first have to realise that you’ve seen it all before, you have the wisdom and benefit that comes with experience. You have been through the worst of it and you are still standing, and that should suggest that maybe, just maybe, some part of your way of thinking is very, very wrong.

Don’t go off the deep end…maybe

October 3, 2014 by  
Filed under Anxiety, Depression, Home

Just because you don’t know where you are, don’t go off the deep end! Or Sometimes you have to take the plunge! But how do you decide?

The only reliable way of making a decision that tells you what to do is by listening to who you are! That includes what your inner goals and desires are, what drives and motivates you and what you need in order to have a good and productive life.

You are your best guide to what is good for you but, as with advice from another person, you have to listen to it for it to have any effect.

It turns out that it can be pretty hard to listen to yourself and believe and accept what you find there. There is a lot of noise that gets in the way of your authentic inner voice.

But what is authentic anyway? How do you know your inner voice is authentic?

Here are the two keys to recognizing your authentic voice:-

Stop and listen to what you want.

So often we jump to what we think others want or expect from us that it can be hard to stop and pay attention to our own desires. If you’re the kind of person who cares deeply about other people then you’ll know what I mean by this. But, you are entitled to have your own desires and they don’t have to be compatible with those of the other people you mix with. You don’t have to conform all of the time. You are allowed to be yourself. It may be that one of the fundamental ingredients of a happy life is connection with your own desires.

Don’t take the story further

When you imagine something happening do you tend to elaborate it further and further until it turns into catastrophe or disaster? This is one of the basic components of worry. The ability to elaborate beyond the facts into a world full or hurt and pain takes you to places that don’t and never will exist. This propels you into fantasy outcomes that will never happen. You are going to need to stop doing this because it steals you from actual reality in the ‘here and now’ and puts you into your ‘head virtual reality fantasy generator’. This separates you from the world and your own needs within it. When you disconnect from ‘reality’ you become vulnerable to all sorts of terrible things…most of which will never happen. I like Mark Twain’s comment below.

“I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.”

Mark Twain

Many of the terrible things we imagine never actually happen.

Many of the terrible things we imagine never actually happen.

Be prepared to say no to what you might not want.

Like many skills in life the skill of being able to discern what you want out of life is one that takes some practice to hone. Many people neglect putting enough effort into this for it to become a genuine life skill. Therefore the answer is to practice having an opinion, sometimes even if you don’t have a strong one.

Trying to please everyone is pointless as it only delays the time when you must be yourself and own your own desires.  Trying to please someone who does not have your best interests at heart (but their own) often ends up being abusive towards you.

Have an alternative already prepared.

I have coined a phrase that I think nicely sums up how we get ourselves into trouble. It is:-

‘Don’t take the path you don’t want to follow.’

What it means is that you need to stop putting attention into a life path that you don’t want to take leading to a destination you wouldn’t wish on yourself.  But do put effort into a life path you do want to take and which will yield a goal you can actively and positively work towards and achieve. Which translates to have a plan already worked out.

All of this means that you have choice. You can exercise choice in two ways. One way is to actively make a choice while the second is to passively accept the result of not making a choice.

You choose!
