The beginning

So I’ve never done anything like this before, and I have many reservations, but I’m at an anxiety-induced crossroads in life once again and I feel that writing my thoughts and feelings may help. Perhaps even reach somebody who feels the same? Somebody who has some answers? I know I don’t have it as bad as some-I watch the news and give thanks for the privelages I enjoy, but I wish I could escape the prison of my own mind. Really it’s all that’s holding me back. I have good health, a loving family, good friends and a supportive partner, but my mind is my obstacle and that fact in itself is hard to accept. Who can I blame for this crossroads when the fault lies within? Who can remove this problem but me? Only I can’t, and there is the second fact that’s hard to accept. To have control over my own mind is my goal. And then, perhaps, I can be free to reach my potential.
