219. Change Your Beliefs

Our beliefs affect our thoughts.
Our thoughts affect our attitude.
Our attitude affects our disposition.
Our disposition affects our condition.

If your condition is one of depression, anxiety, or other dark abodes, it may be time to change your beliefs.

There is little you can do with your disposition; that is, your frame of mind. It doesn’t work to say, “Go away depression!” Likewise, an attitude is made up of years of thinking and acting a certain way. It doesn’t work to say, “I won’t be a critical person any longer.” Changing our thoughts offers hope, through cognitive behavioral therapy and other counseling.

But the best way of changing your condition is by changing your beliefs, by trading the lies that have kept you in a dark place to the truths that will set you free. We’ll explore some lies and truths in the next blog.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
