I joined this forum, with what i considered an open mind, and to read through many of the post's on this site, i have come to realise that i am not alone, not alone in any aspect of my life.

From this forum i have discovered that there are people out there just like me. People who do care, and who do dare to think deeper and wider than the average person.

To be able to share such personal things as emotions, and their paths that they take, it encapsulates me (if thats a word) it drives me to think more of myself, and who and what i am, and can be.

This forum and my recent situations in life have encouraged me to be ME, and to discover more of me. Yes i went to the depths of "suicide was the way forward", but when i got there, thanks to my open mindedness, i seen who i was, and to fear yourself, is a fear to be met once.

When you think that there is no hope, your just looking in the wrong direction.

i believe that your thoughts create your emotions, no aspect of your life requires no thought, consciously or subconsciously.

subconsciously our hearts beat, our lungs expand and contract, Consciously, we think and choose, decide and conclude, even without outside influence, our thoughts decide our lives, change your thoughts, change your life.

Life is a Roller Coaster, at least we are complaining about the ride, many dont and they just jump off. We never complain about the high points in the ride, only the low.

On this forum, i have found that my cart is a shared one, and that there are many others out there, just like me, who need others, just like me, because a problem shared is a problem halved.

Thanks Jesse. I'm sure I'll get to it in time. Yesterday was a long way from 10yrs ago when I'd sit there with him just saying things from a list of "um, I dunno, not really, I guess" and barely anything else. I'd be interested in seeing what an in-person session would be like now (I'm doing these ones over video due to location) but at the moment it's helpful that I'm hidden from the shoulders down so I don't have to think about what it looks like when my legs/arms sometimes start shaking.

Everything happens for a reason and other lies I've loved Kate Bowler, TEDMED 2018 December 2018 In life's toughest moments, how do you go on living? Kate Bowler has been exploring this question ever since she was diagnosed with stage IV cancer at age 35. In a profound, heartbreaking and unexpectedly funny talk, she offers some answers - challenging the idea that "everything happens for a reason" and sharing hard-won wisdom about how to make sense of the world after your life is suddenly...

There’s a simple, scientific reason that diets almost never work January 14, 2015 Quartz (QZ.com) Each day, we make hundreds of food decisions. Some of us eat and feel well. Others eat and over time, gain weight, or worse, develop disease. One third of the world, or 2.1 billion people, are overweight. In our global quest for thinner waistlines and better health, we are learning why our diets are failing. Our microbiomes. The microbiome, comprised of trillions of microbes, inhabits all...
