My Greatest Achievement

My greatest achievement was when I started thinking of positive ways to improve my life. For 15 years I went into a deep depression. This consisted of panic attacks, lack of concentration, crying, anxiety, overeating, mental confusion. With all these problems,
my everyday life was very confusing to me.I spent several weeks in the hospital because I could not cope with my life.
First I went to a psychiatrist to obtain prescription medication for anxiety. I also went for psychotherapy to learn how to think positive instead of having all those negative feelings like "I cannot do this" or "I am afraid to do this." The therapy really began to work.
Soon, I began to feel better and worked on the steps of building self-confidence.
Today, I practice positive thinking and have become a person who has let go of anxiety to really feel good about myself. My greatest achievement has been learning how to deal with problems and saying,"yes I can" and doing it.
I am not strong in mind, body and spirit. I will, strength and motivation. Problems are important to me.
With them I can move forward into the direction of my own personal goals. I will always remember nothing is impossible unless I believe to be. If you do not believe you can do a task, then do not do it.
