How Do You Stop, Your Mind From Just Cutting You Down?

how do you stop, your mind from just cutting you down? I have had depression, all my life, but didn't realize anything was wrong, until I was about 20 years old. I basically knew something was wrong with me, I was diagnosed with ADD, when I was young, probably around ten.

You know what, you sound just like me. I can’t turn my head off either. It runs constantly with all kinds of noise. I know exactly what you’re going through and I empathize with you

Keep in touch with me and let me know how your doing. If I do try Yoga and it helps I will let you know. Hang in there. Message me any time.

You know people tell you that life is what you make it. Not true for some of us. There has never been a time in my life that things just went okay, but given that I do believe life is worth living. The way I look at it is everyday I have a chance to make it better for me. I do not need to live in the past the past is my problem. I need to leave it there and move on. I have found true love at 52 years old. It is amazing feeling and I am not saying everything is peachy because it is not. I have never known a day that something did not happen but what makes a differences for me is that I believe that I have a chance to make a difference in my life every new day. So if you give up then you never know that is what I believe to be true.
