Anxiety – the monster within us

Allgemein, anxiety

It feels like you’re fainting or having a stroke. You feel your anxiety rising inside of you. It seems like everything you can think of is fear. Everything you notice is your tunnel-type vision. All of a sudden you stop breathing. A immensely intense heat seems to be setting your body on fire – it’s so hot, you’ve never felt such a heat before, it’s feels like the room you’re in has claustrophobic proportions. “Am I just loosing my mind?”

Anxiety

/aŋˈzʌɪəti

noun: anxiety;

plural noun: anxietiesjp

Psychiatry

a nervous disorder marked by excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behaviour or panic attacks.

Lately I’ve been reading Daniel Goldman’s Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ.

While I was reading it I stumbled upon a Chapter in which Goleman talks about anxiety. Now I don’t wanna anticipate the content about what he was talking, but let me tell you this guys: psychologists unknowingly confirmed the Bibles teaching about figthing anxiety through words.

when comparison attacks us

Allgemein

We all know this quote “comparison is the thief of joy”.

I feel like this quote might even be one of the of the quotes I read the most this year. Well, who didnt? but although i read this quote everyday, and even though i even know it by heart i still find myself comparing to other peoples instagram lifes – yes, there instagram lifes and not their real lifes.

lately the holy spirit′s been speaking to me about this topic.. i realized, that the reason why we still find ourselves comparing to somebody else is because we don′t have a foundation in our lifes. well, actually we have a foundation – ourselves.

What am I living for?

What am I living for? What is my Purpose?
Nearly everyone of us ever asked this question. Well, how couldn’t we, if we’ve been told throughout our whole childhood how important it is to know the answer to the following question:
„What do you want to become when you grow up?“
A year from know I will have finished the A-Levels, but I still do not know the concrete answer to the question
„What do you want to become when you grow up?“.
But is finding the answer to question really that hard?

How To Keep Faith in Highschool/College

Allgemein

This is a message from me to all my fellow christians out there who also have to deal with one of the most challenging times of our lives, by saying this I mean – who would have thought it – Highschool or College.

I mean, honestly the struggle is real! Partys, alcohol, gossip, bad companions, …the list goes on and on. Not forgetting the really stressful exam periods. Some of us may also have jobs and other obligations besides school. Now, the question is:

How can I as a christian keep my faith strong in highschool/college? How can I not walk with the crowd? How to deal with unbelieving friends in general? How can I strengthen my private time with the Lord and spend more time with Him?
