Afraid of the future

Standard

Hi everyone I know it’s been a while. Recently I’ve finished with group therapy which was a new experience but I still prefer individual therapy. Also the psychologists are now closed for this year and will only startup in January again. To be honest in therapy I feel safe like everything gonna be okay but once I leave to go home everything becomes real again and I’m terrified again.

Right now my main concern now is my future. My current job has just ended and I’m living off my parents who aren’t working.  They only collect pension which isn’t even much.  If anything where to happen to any of them I’d be devastated both emotionally and financially.  With my anxiety is on over drive again. I don’t even know if I’ll be even able to hold down a job.

To be honest I feel guilty because remember when my dad was working he used to go to work everyday to a job he hated just to provide for me and my family. I can never be able to express to my dad how grateful I am for what his done for me. I want to be positive but reality tells me otherwise. I spend so much wondering what if this and what if that. 

That’s why I feel so guilty because I should be taking care of mom and dad,  not them taking care of me.  I still ask God this question! Why was I even born,  I can’t do anything with my life,  my anxiety makes me feel useless, clumsy and like can’t do anything right.

Also the news shows us how bad the economy is, how jobs are hard to come by. So that doesn’t exactly give me any hope. 

I’m scared I’m gonna be alone someday maybe even like a Berger, because how much can you rely on family and you don’t want to burden anyone either.  Life is also so expensive.  So yes I’m terrified my future is so uncertain.  I’m writing this post openly and honestly so you know how I’m really feeling. 

To be honest I don’t wanna be poor but I want to be successful not for fame or money but so I can use my influence and power to help people.  Guess fear keeps me up at night telling me why it’s never gonna happen.

So lately I’ve began praying to God about my anxiety,  for my family and life in general.  That God will guide us.  Right now God is my only hope.  Sometimes you just have to believe in that higher power.  As a Christian I don’t have much faith because of my anxiety. But despite it I still do my best to try to be faithful. So why has this post gotten religious all of a sudden you maybe thinking.  Well like I said earlier I’m terrified of what might happen in my future. Trusting in God gives me some kind of peace knowing his in control.

Anyway thank you for reading my blog.  I never intended it to become about anxiety or mental health but it seems that’s where my life is at these days.

Letter to my past and future self

Standard

How awesome would it be to time travel. You could change your past or future. Sadly that technology doesn’t exist, but I taught it would be an awesome idea to write a letter to the past and future ME! I got that Idea from reading pat flynn’s book let go.

Letter to the past

To my 13 year old self you will be shocked to know that I have learnt graphic design all on my own. I’m also a blogger but I don’t think the technology I’m describing to you exist in your time. I’m writing this letter to tell you because if i could change my future I would. I’ve made many mistakes and the biggest one of all was around your age. I didn’t believing in myself enough.

My present which is your future has a lot of cool things. Like cellphones, playstation and big screen tv’s. I should warn you also in my time girls are different. They fast and dress sluty. So be careful not to lose your virginity to just anyone like I did. One more thing don’t be afraid to dream big.
That’s all I wanted to say is believe in yourself, you awesome.

Letter to the future

To my 50 year old self you better not of been lazy because my success and my life is in your hands. I wonder if any of your dreams have come true. Have you become an inspiration to others like I always believed I could.
I’m curious to know what our future is like. Am I married do I have kids. Are they girls or boys.

Do you still keep in touch with our closest friends, oyeshan, moses renaldo and zak. If I’m still alive by the age of 50 I’ll be able to write that post myself. Its been fun but gotta get back to reality for now wishing you an awesome future.
