Lucky for me, my support base was efficient and my attitude was a sense of control. Later in life, my commitments both physically and financially increased. With my partner gone and my home mortgage level a financial burden even when I was employed, I was made redundant. How could I possibly cope with a mortgage of $2,500 a month?
Like all triggers in life, each affects a person differently. In my case, I suffered absolute depression. After some life-threatening incidents, I spent two years on government-paid counseling, and although extremely helpful in moving ahead in life, it offered no answers to why I despised my actions, what I was doing, and why.
After some inner thinking, I finally developed an understanding of why I went into denial mood and became my own worst enemy. It was then I wrote my first book Acceptance, Recognition, and Control (A.R.C.) Against Depression.
After dealing with several other serious health problems, my self-understanding reached new levels. This second book will assist both men and women in dealing with the events we encounter in our quest for self-confidence. Understanding Your Depression also teaches about control and understanding the events around us.
