Kliniek toe!

20180606_125256Amper ‘n jaar gelede het ek eindelik ingegee en my in ‘n kliniek vir depressie laat opneem – een van die beste besluite van my lewe. Hieronder is die stukkie wat later daaroor in rooirose verskyn het. Dis baie persoonlik en dis steeds moeilik om dit te deel, maar ek doen dit in die hoop dat dit iemand wat op die rand van ‘n afgrond staan, kan help om ook daardie stap te neem.
NS. ‘n Vriendin het vir my dié blomme gestuur. Ek was een van die min pasiënte wat blomme gekry het – terwyl gewone hospitaalkamers gewoonlik oorloop van blomme. Dit sê iets oor die stigma wat nog aan opname vir geestesiektes kleef. Dis elkeen van ons se plig om teen daardie stigma te veg. 

“Ek kan nie, ek kan nie!” Ek staan op my knieë langs my bed en skree magteloos in die matras in.

Op hierdie stadium is daar heelwat goed wat ek nie meer kan doen nie. Ek kan nie meer maklik lag nie. Ek sukkel om dankbaar te wees. Ek vind dit moeilik om op te hou as ek trooskos te ete kry. Ek kan kwalik die energie bymekaar skraap om soggens uit die bed te kom. My woorde het opgedroog, ek is nie meer ‘n goeie geselser nie.

Net my goeie man sien my in my nood, maar hy is magteloos om my te help.

Ek weet lankal dis net ek wat myself kan help. Vir jare het ek dit redelik goed reggekry, soms selfs uitstekend. Leefstylkeuses het ‘n groot invloed op depressie. Wat jy eet, of jy oefen, of jy iets doen wat jou lewe sinvol laat voel, of jy goeie menseverhoudings het, dit alles kan Read the rest of this entry »

Earn your creative freedom

Earn your creative freedom

Lees hier wat my wyse oudste te sê het oor die greep wat die verbruikersamelewing op ons het, die effek daarvan en hoe om die bose siklus te verbreek:

One in a Billion

In the previous post, we talked about how out of place the primitive human mind is in our modern world. Overeating was used as an example of a natural effect of this situation, but many other self-destructive behaviors also stem from this source. In my experience, the one and only sustainable remedy to this unfortunate situation is creative flow.

Creation is the polar opposite of destruction, making it an obvious way to stop self-destructive behaviors. I’m sure that everyone reading this has been in that blissful state of creative flow where your body secretes happiness hormones without the aid of food, alcohol, social media, retail therapy or any other form of consumption.

Unfortunately, our primitive minds keep the vast majority of the population very far away from this ideal. Since most people remain stuck in a mindset of scarcity, our society still chases happiness through consumption. This perception…

Objective reality

Objective reality

Hoe gelukkig is jy? Hoe volhoubaar is jou lewenstyl?

One in a Billion

Planning a journey requires two pieces of information: where you are and where you want to go. Most people have at least a rough idea of where they want to go (your personal constitution can help a lot in this regard), but few people ever acknowledge the objective reality of where they are at the moment.

For example, have you ever used a lifestyle calculator like those linked on the top left of this blog? For a mere hour of your precious time, these calculators can give a pretty good idea of where you stand on the subject of a happy, healthy, wealthy and sustainable life.

Determining your true objective reality can be an awkward exercise. Ignorance is bliss, especially when it comes to long-term things like building wealth for retirement, maintaining a healthy lifestyle to avoid degenerative disease, and shrinking your environmental footprint to preserve our planet for future…
