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

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
