Often you might find that sometimes you are feeling low, depressed, sad and hopeless about your life and being a parent, but other times you find yourself anxious and on edge about what is going on. In the following video I show you exactly why this happens and how your beliefs about life are contributing to this yo-yo effect as well.

As you have seen through today’s and yesterday’s readings and videos there is specific thinking that underlies all stress, depression and anxiety. Even though what’s in your picture box may be slightly different from another person’s, the common denominator is the incorrect thinking that only when I can get my life to go right (in terms of what I believe is important), can I be valuable.

Whenever life doesn’t go to plan, you wind up feeling bad about yourself and feeling like a failure, or there is a lot of blame towards another person.

If you have already started noticing the thoughts going on in your head, you would already be able to identify some of the Right vs wrong thinking, Missing Out, Could/Should and worth-less words that you use in your every day language.

I hope this video helps you to see even more clearly that it is incorrect beliefs you have gained about life going right, that underlies the cause of your stress. The specific thinking you have just had explained to you is what is found in all cases of stress, depression and anxiety.

What we need to help you do now, is to change this thinking to be in alignment with reality and the real truth about self-worth.  This is the exact reason why I don’t spend a lot of time on rolling around in your past.  The important part of this program is teaching you how to change these incorrect beliefs.

Starting from next week, this is what we will start to spend more time on – solutions for how to change your thinking.

However, for the rest of this week, there is even more to explain that will give you even more clarity and evidence to support why PND has become part of your life.
