Depression and Fear

Posted by George Williams on Monday, October 6th, 2008

This is the final week of series 1 and we’re are going out with the 2 big heavyweight subjects that probably affect everyone at some stage in their lives, depression and fear. In my search for recovery I have so many questions to ask and so many people have so many opinions as well as answers.Is depression an illness or just a state of mind. Is fear, fear or is it anxiety.

By the end of the week I’m determined to have many of the answers. I’m exploring all the statements, challenging the views and meeting the people who can help give me a better insight. Real people with real lives dealing with the real issues.

I’m certain of one thing, a desire to change, to look within and be truly honest is the starting point. understanding how our feelings and emotions especially those ingrained into the powerhouse “our subconscious”, really do shape and mould our lives and our perception of life and how we fit into it all. It’s all really complex and we need to understand it all better and then unravel the mess.

Start a journey of self discovery, there are plenty of books and programmes and I’m sure with enough effort you will find one that works.

Listen to people who seem to be achieving happiness and contentment within their lives. They’re thin on the ground so they really stick out and one thing is for sure, be open minded and prepare to change.

Tonight’s show with the posse got off to a great start and it was definitely an hour of awareness, debate, support and advice. Join Trevessa, Jonathan and James for the highs and lows of fear and depression.
