Hope to Cope When You are at the End of Your Rope!

By Mike Freeman

What do you do when you feel that you're at the end of your tether with your generalized anxiety symptoms, stresses, depression, and fears? In this time, the most sensible thing to do is not to give up and not to give up hope. In the meantime, here's a list of simple methods that an individual can utilize to overcome your depression, fears, and anxiety.

Often we encounter a scary situation that gets us all upset. When encountering these events, do not ever forget to get all the facts of the given situation. Gathering the facts can block us from relying on exaggerated and scared beliefs. By focusing on the facts, a person can depend on what's fact and what is not.

Take it one day at a time. Rather than stressing about how you will get thru the rest of the week or coming month, try and concentrate on today. Every day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning the way to handle your problems. Target the present and stop attempting to predict what may occur the week after next. The week after next will take care of itself.

Learn how to manage your scared thoughts that might be difficult to manage. When experiencing a self-destructive thought, read some positive statements and affirmations that help lift your spirits and lead you to feel better. Remember that your fearful thoughts could be exaggerated so balance these thoughts with pragmatic thinking and common sense.

Some of the people get depressed and have a troublesome time getting out of bed in the mornings. When that occurs, someone should take a big breath and find something to do to get their mind off the problem. Somebody could take a walk, hear some music, read the newspaper or do an activity that may give them a fresh point of view on things. Doing something will get your mind off of the difficulty and give you confidence to do other things.

Often, it helps to be able to talk to someone about our nerve wracking scenarios. Chatting to a reliable friend, counselor, or priest can not just make us feel better, but they might be able to offer you additional information and insights on the best way to deal with your present problem.

Though I am probably a layman and not a pro I have interviewed many psychologists and clergyman and I have been taught that there are several things someone can do to help in managing their fears. Handling our determined fears is not easy, however there are numerous beneficial resources available to us if you look closely enough.
