With my losing my job due to the pandemic, it has left me with much time for my demons and baggage to creep in. What I’ve learned about myself, is that while I’ve been super successful as a Dad and an employee, I was hyper-focused on those roles and all of the tasks that came with them to be the best that I could be but also to avoid feeling the pain from many significant past hurts and traumas. All this downtime has allowed these feelings, memories and baggage to creep in overwhelming me with pretty severe anxiety and depression. I’m trying to do all the right things as far as praying often, exercising, therapy, volunteering and meditating but am having difficulty feeling hopeful and seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. I ask that you please include me in your prayers that I continue to trust in God as it pertains to his timing and path, knowing that He ultimately wants nothing but joy, happiness and peace of mind for me.
