    Hang in there, Stefan. I have read your blog and seen your youtubes, you have a lot of insight to give to the world. Your blog has helped me.

    L-Tyrosine has helped me. Also, it seems wacky I know, have some dark chocolate. Specifically, 80% or more cacao. Just a little.
    Google it. Worked for me. It helps with the depressed moods.

    And write something for the blog again. Get the junk out of your head.

    Don’t do anything rash, thoughts are just temporary. The world needs you.

    BTW, your blog had motivated me to start my own. But I am a procrastinator, I have only set up an account so far. Maybe someday.

    Thanks for writing yours. It does help people.

    I am at that point in life now myself. I always was comfortable at my job, got good reviews, and had good attendance. We got a new director and then it seemed nothing mattered anymore. We were pretty much told we were all expendable, of no real value, and could be replaced easily. Morale went into the toilet, co-workers turned on each other, and long story shortened, many of us moved on.

    This seems to be standard everywhere now. The idea of positively motivating employees seems to no longer be of any value to managers these days. I have no real advice other than say don’t let others or your job define you. There are lots of good articles here that can help. One will resonate with you.

    I felt so bad reading your post. I know how awful it is to feel like we don’t matter. But rest assured that you do. We all do.

    Prakhar, I have had the same type of problems as you. I am easily influenced by others and the fear of not being accepted or taken seriously by others. OCD, GAD, anxiety and panic attacks. I tried all kinds of meditations, tried treating myself with nutritional supplements and positive thinking to turn off the bad feelings. I spent countless hours researching anxiety and panic attacks. I have found it almost impossible to find someone to listen to me and take me seriously let alone give me encouragement. Most people, even friends, just don’t want to make the investment in time or compassion. What I have come to discover, pretty much accidentally, is all the anxiety, bad feelings and other stuff comes from being dishonest, both with others and yourself. Once we stop making up stories and excuses to others and ourselves, and stop blaming others and the universe for our problems, and are totally honest things start changing for the better. I have to tell you it is not easy. I still fall into old patterns worrying that I am disappointing the people around me, and trying to rationalize everything to everyone and myself. But I am getting better. I am sure you will too. As the old sayings go “honesty is the best policy” and “the truth shall set you free”.
