Freedom from mental illness has been something that I have worked towards for more tan 10 years, and I have been affected by it for more that 30 years. The work I have put into my recovery has been worth every moment, and exploring alternative medicines, such as meditation and aroma therapy, has been a real pleasure. I have made strides towards mental healing, and I do not intend to stop now. Today’s daily affirmation is something that I will take joy in repeating when faced with anxiety. Today, I will declare: ” my anxiety will not control my life!” I will dwell on this statement as often as needed to encourage me to continue on my journey to mental health. I know that I am not alone in the struggle with depression and anxiety, and I hope that others can gain from this affirmation!
