Sooth yourself back into the present moment – your body is just trying to keep you safe

When you are drowning in anxiety, when you are slowly suffocated by panic attacks – take a step back from the endless chatter of the world, close your eyes and take a deep breath.

Flashbacks are not real – your breathtakingly sharp worry is just your body trying to keep you safe from potential danger ahead. Potential – but not real. What is real, is this moment right here, right now. Keep breathing and sooth yourself back into the present moment. Show your body, again and again, that it is safe now.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, your soul is eternal and will only become more beautiful, bright and blessed the more darkness you have to go through.

Your life is just a second in the eternity that is your journey

Your life is just a second in the eternity that is your journey. What seems like a lifetime of pain, is but a blink of the eye. All moments merely scattered pieces that in the end enriches the bigger picture

Sooth your numbing insecurity – rest in your comfortable safe haven

Sooth your numbing insecurity, comfort you trembling sadness and cool your burning rage. Take a step back and rest in your comfortable safe haven.

There is always a glimmer of hope inside your heart

At times you may feel lost in dark despair, and you may tremble by the mere thought of what happened. However, it is never hopeless and it is never too late because no matter how dark it might temporarily seem – there is always a glimmer of hope inside your heart. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and trust that this too shall pass.

Writing breathes life back into my body

Every word a mindfull moment of pure focus. A reliefgiving moment when all those dark flashbacks dissolve. Writing is my guiding light out of the dark.

How did you manage to get back up again?

Who hurt you so bad it brought you to your knees and shattered your sense of security into a million pieces?

Who stole the joy from your eyes, tore the passion from your words and ripped the very zest for life from your body?

More importantly, how did you manage to get back up again?
