Ask the Author: Question & Response

I’m passing through a very difficult time in my life and maybe your experience in coaching may help me. I’m in a moment where nothing is easy. I’m not happy with work and my love life is not going well. After a difficult divorce and other relations that have not worked out, I had thought I had finally found stability. I’m in a relationship of a year and a half, but lately it has not been working and that has me very depressed because it would be yet another failure and also I love him very much. I feel so bad that I have not been to work in two days. The only thing I feel is that I want to leave this place, leave everything and start anew. I’m a US citizen; I was born there, and I want to look at the option of going to live in the US and find work and start from zero. I have a good work resume, but I don’t know if now is the time with the economic crisis if it’s easy to find work there. Please, I need your advice to know what to do. Sorry to involve you in something that you have nothing to do with but I feel bad. Thank you.

What you are feeling is not who you are.  All negative thoughts are foreign to you; they are not part of your true essence. All negative thinking has been learned and is not part of your true self. Negative thinking is simply a very limited foreign belief system that you have allowed to enter your mind, and that is now fogging and lingering over your true self. Through your thoughts, actions and reactions, you are supporting this fog as your truth – yet deep down inside, you feel and know it is not your truth, and thus your confusion. You are continually expressing a foreign belief system you deep down have no faith or belief in, and thus your frustration and depression.

In truth, who you are is an all-loving, all-compassionate and happy being. This is the real you. This is the real you that you are now on a journey to remembering, and of putting that memory into practice through your daily interactions…

    Hi…I just wanted to say that I have been working with this for some time and have come to the conclusion that it is linked to believing in a power greater than ourselves and that part of the struggle is overcoming the self or the ego. It has been a long and ongoing process but from all the studying I do it is pretty hard to get over the depression or frustration if we cant get over the self with all its expectations and attachments. It is about finding God but it is really hard to do if we cant go over the self (including many parts of the personality). One of the hardest things is letting go of the past when so many mistakes were made because of a dysfunctional personality…that is really hard to do. People say, forgive yourself, but that is really hard…we never knew we were so sick. And even that I relate to a separation from God because i think if we are connected we would never do those things. There is no way we would have made those mistakes.

    I just wanted to say that I have struggled with this for some time and absolutely agree that the answer is finding a connection to a higher power….God, which means we have to overcome the self. I find that part of the struggle has been dealing with the ego, the self, with all its demands, expectations, attachments and its inability to appreciate, sometimes, others. So getting well, for some of us, really does mean getting out of the self, letting go of the self. I understand that it is different for different people, but for some of us, it is about learning a new way to live and somehow learning to make up for and come to terms with the past.

    One of the biggest problems I have found is dealing with the remembrance of things that went wrong or that I did wrong when I was in my disease, the people that were hurt…things there is no way that would have happened if I understood spiritual principles better or the ways of God and would have been a better and different human being. I am still reeling from the impact of that….it has been really tough to overcome.
