Welcome to the "Dark Side" of Darren. •
Despite appearances (and we all engineer, fabricate, and maintain them) of the healthy, fit Darren you have grown to love and hate, I too have my own challenges. Welcome to one of them. •
Everyone has battles they fight that we know nothing of, or anything about. •
I too have my own battles. OCD and the endless ways it can manifest itself is both real, and significant. •
Often in life within the pursuit of an "answer", the answer is reduced down to acceptance and management. •
Not every problem in life can be resolved or overcome in the traditional sense. •
And within every battle, every problem, there lies an answer as well as a learning opportunity. •
Nothing is all good or all bad. Your thinking makes it so. •
As cliched as it is; the glass truly can be half full despite all indications of it being half empty. •
And despite our tendency to create a black or white out of everything; everything is ultimately a mix of both good and bad. •
It is your perspective, your ability to choose a response to the moment (called responsibility) that will determine the role or effect this challenge will ultimately have in and on your life. •
If the answer is not apparent at first, likely you are asking the wrong questions. •
And the real difficulty lies in the fact that the same thinking that has gotten you into trouble, will likely be the same thinking you will try and use to get yourself out of the problem....you see the problem in that?!
Time to change your perspective...
