Many people in our world suffer severely in silence, unaware of the seriousness of their depressed thinking and unable to see a path out of that state of thought. Their inner life is absolute hell. Their thought patterns can lead to drastic behaviors including drug-dependency, substance abuse, and suicide attempts. Such was the case of the author.
Other people in the lives of the depressed individuals cannot imagine the kinds of thoughts that repeat themselves over and over in the minds of the suffering ones. To these others, there seems to be no observable reason for the suffering one to feel as terrible as he or she feels, yet that is the reality. Immense suffering is going on.
The author published the book for two reasons: 1) to help those suffering major depression to see in print some of their thought patterns and realize that they are NOT alone, and 2) to enable those sufferers to see a path of thoughts that may help them to slowly work their way out of the inner disaster they live with regularly. It takes time and consistent effort, but it is possible. In the case of the author, he has been able to progress far enough to be able to live without depression/anxiety medicines and without substance abuse.
The book may also help those who know a suffering individual. Better understanding of the possible thought patterns may lead to the ability to offer more effective assistance.
Using This Book
If you find YOUR thoughts in the first section of this book, YOU are a prisoner of your own thinking, unable to experience life in a way that brings you peace and fulfillment.
Begin to realize that whatyou repeat over and over in your thinking is NOT THE TRUTH. It is your mental illness telling you awful things about yourself. You probably have said awful things about yourself for a long time. In order to change your life, you must begin to practice different thoughts.
Use ideas from the second and third sections of the book -- repeat them over and over -- to start replacing the self-destructive thoughts. Remember, you have practiced the self-destructive thoughts for a long time. It will take extended practice of new thoughts -- over and over -- to change to a healthier life.
Only by repeated practice can you begin to tear away the awful weights of self-destructive thinking.
