I have been reading many blogs recently about people dealing with anxiety and I want to help. It seems to me that the ones suffering from anxiety, depression, or some other kind of “disorder” are actually the sane ones. It is modern society that has the disorder, and in my opinion, the ones going about like everything is a-ok, you know, just don’t worry and be happy, are the most delusional of the group. The most sensitive of us all are the ones suffering the most when really this heightened sensitivity ought to be cherished. This hyper-sensitivity can cause so much harm when out of control. However, when mastered, it becomes one’s greatest gift. Tangled up within the anxiety is the cure, and when I discover my own cure, I have discovered a powerful medicine that is desperately needed by a sick and twisted world. What I am saying to those suffering is I see you. I see your special and unique “flaws” and “disorders” as teachers, as gifts waiting to be revealed. Thank you for telling the rest of us that life here on Earth is not all rainbows and butterflies, that there are caterpillars and cloudy days, too, and these things are equally useful and beautiful. I encourage you to work through your pain to find your truth, your medicine, your own self-love. It is this truth earned through facing the self that will set you free. I speak from experience, having transformed my own self-destructive behavior and lack of self-control into a potent tool for healing.
I want to help. The best way I know how is to listen to you and to encourage you to face yourself and find your medicine. If there’s anything else I can do please let me know. I would hug you if you were here.
With balance. – Aaron
