Why the hell don’t David Cameron and the Conservatives say look – enough is enough – you want to see your GP? We need to increase tax. I honestly don’t give a shit about a couple of hundred pounds a year if it means I can see my GP and I can feel happy that my fellow Brits aren’t suffering living below the breadline!!! #benefits #tax #cooperation #initogether #CPC14 #NHS

Why does it take such an event as a death to afford us perspective? Maybe it is attention span, maybe once we have something to focus on we do just that. Maybe it is self preservation – a need to control potential dangers, or at least our exposure. Either way we wrap our attention around unnecessary trials and tribulations of all sizes. The most pressing truth of that is that there will always be a supply of them always waiting at the door. Always something of importance and always something to get stressed over.
There are many mantras to help that process of realignment, many places to turn to learn and advice to receive but trust is key. Read it all and hear it all and pay for your life coaches but if you do not trust them, if you do not trust the others who have been there and suffered so you do not have to then you are set to learn the same hard lessons the same hard way.
Anxiety is a completely natural reaction to a completely unnatural way of living. But if you’re blessed with a stable ground then appreciate it because that’s as blessed as one can be in our world – take it and run. Don’t allow yourself to be painted with the thick black tar because it’s fucking hard to get clean. Faith is hard in our cynical, agnostic world.
With or without the black dog have faith in yourself and the promise that with positivity comes positivity. We can be our own light in dark times. Love yourself. Trust yourself.
“Anxiety is love’s greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds
on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.” – Anaïs Nin
PLAYER: "...well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory -- they're all blood, you see."
GUILDENSTERN: "Is that what people want?"
PLAYER: "It's what we do."
