Hey paws, how you doing?
Yeah the guy that wrote that letter/post really has been there, seen it, done it, worked it all out and come out of the other side - and is SO much stronger for the experience. And that's where I am at now and have been trying to share, but this guy Chris says it so much better - his allegory about Alcatraz is unbelievably on point.
I realise that people who haven't got where he is now will maybe struggle with what he is trying to say, but I've read through it 3 times now and KNOW (because I've travelled the same journey) that what he has written there is the way out of this sh*t called anxiety.
It may be hard to believe (and belief is THE thing that holds us back), but TRUST me the guy has basically put "the cure" into words. And if I am saying that the cure for this thing is there in words, then what more is there to give?
So read it, re-read it, understand it - but most importantly of all put the thing into practise
because that is the only thing that is missing now, everything else has been given - it really has
the rest is up to YOU, the sufferer.
Like it says in this guys letter "I can only show you the door, you're the one who has to walk through it"
Best wishes to all............ and I'm telling the moderators again, this letter should be made impossible to miss and pinned to the board(s) somewhere, if its not, then it really is a travesty. Take it from someone who KNOWS, this stuff is priceless, and what took me the best part of 20 years to work out is all there, all available, in full, in this letter!!
