Worry? Laugh? You Choose

By melanie jean juneau, published on Jun 28, 2013

“If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.” Dalai Lama XIV

Why Worry?

Worry only feeds our panic over situations that are beyond our control.

Letting go and trusting seems impossible.

My family’s word for over thinking is Mental Kung-Fu. Try saying it and soon you will smile at the image of thoughts wrangling with each other. Laughter cuts through our anxiety because we realize how absurd we are.

Might as well give up. I was not designed to control everything and everyone. So I might as well give up control and give God His job back. When I accept that I am simply a child of God, nothing... (more)

My Discordant Song

By D. Sager, published on Feb 23, 2012

...to be someone else. You think you can help me, or should help me. Is my deficit that annoying for you to bear? Don't fix me to make yourself feel better; realize that in trying to fix me, you are tearing me apart. I know I'm sick, I'm ill, I'm addicted. I binge, purge, use, fixate, cut, obsess, worry, and rage. I listen to voices that tell me about how you want to change me, to make me better. Really? I don't see the life you live as better. I see that your scared to let your weaknesses show, to claim them as your own. To know and show that they are a part of you, like every part that is... (more)
