Sometimes it contaminates your thoughts with a sad and extremely painful “discovery”: ‘Nobody cares about me…’
Then your brain reacts to this thought.
Imagine your confused brain trying to rapidly figure out what action to take after this ‘no one cares’ statement:
‘Should I get angry?’, ‘What can I do to make them care?’, ‘Am I worthless?’, etc. etc.
The possibilities of what can emerge out of this torturing thought activity are endless.
STOP! Take a deep breath in, and claim back your brain from the grips of depression.
‘Easier said than done, Kat!’- I can hear you say.
Well, fortunately there are people who travelled the road of depression before us and managed to find a way out.
Let me introduce you to Byron Katie, who developed a method of self-inquiry called The Work.
See this method in action in this video, exploring the topic ‘Something is wrong with me’.
Now back to your work and the four questions you need to ask yourself.
‘Nobody cares about me!’
1) Is it true?
2) Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
3) How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?
4) Who would you be without that thought?
Please question yourself until you can find the truth that was always within you: ‘People care about me!’
I hope to see your comments about this method. Sharing your thoughts and experiences can tremendously help many people, as we can see with Byron Katie’s work.
Love, light and healing!
