As someone that â??lives withâ? (rather than â??deals withâ?) the stress of depression and social anxiety there are some things that many of you take for grantedâ?¦leaving the house. Some days itâ??s no problem at all but other days it takes a lot of effort to leave the house and be face to face with the world.
Iâ??ve tried lots of tricks to make it easier to deal with the stress, but for the most part I havenâ??t found anything that truly alleviates the issue. Recently I had to go do something and I was getting quite nervous leading up to leaving the house. I went through my normal mental check list to talk myself down and nothing really worked.
I pulled out my cell phone and tried something I hadnâ??t done before. I pulled up a photo of Sammy and looked through a few. Within seconds I had a smile on my face and I was a million miles away from that stress and anxiety.
Now, I know heâ??s my kid and heâ??s cute and all that but thatâ??s not really what this is about. Itâ??s not even really about anxiety and depression as Buy Cialis that is something Iâ??ve lived with for a very long time and itâ??s my problem to deal with. Instead, this is about the power of a child. Itâ??s about the power of that dad/ son bond. Itâ??s about realizing that no matter what happens in the worldâ?¦Sammy loves me unconditionally. He doesnâ??t care if Iâ??m broke or wealthy. He doesnâ??t care if Iâ??m the garbage man or the CEO.
Thereâ??s a peace in there, a freedom. Being able to find freedom in among all the stress is what I think weâ??re all looking for. I find it when Iâ??m at the ocean. I find it when Annie and I are able to leave the white picket fence life behind us for a bit. And now Iâ??m finding it more and more in Sammy. When Iâ??m able to tune everything out and not give a shitâ?¦itâ??s amazing the places him and I go. I donâ??t mean physically go necessarily. I mean reading books, playing with toys, walking around the park, marching around the house, or laying on the ground outside and watching bugs.
Freedom comes from the darndest placesâ?¦so long as weâ??re open to it.
