Depression And Anxiety Aren’t Your Identity.

Depression and anxiety are very real challenges in today’s world. Have you ever been around what seems like 1 million people and feel like you’re nothing but alone inside? I’ve been there. It’s a dark place. A place of insecurity, and depression.

Looking around and seeing so many faces only to feel lost in the crowd. It is not abnormal, there are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people around the globe right now suffering from the same feeling of loneliness.

Don’t HIDE IT AND NEVER BE ASHAMED OF IT. Tell someone, like right now. You aren’t alone and you never will be.  You have so much potential and a purpose in your life, whether you see it or not.

Anxiety is tough. It can physically drain you and make you feel belittled if you let it. But always remember, Anxiety is a symptom… Depression is a feeling and neither one of them are your identity.

They CAN be treated and you CAN get better. That feeling of panic in your chest that makes you sick to your stomach and that vision of a blurry road will soon clear up. You won’t feel it forever.

That feeling of emptiness and a life of what seems like constant misery will go away. Because that’s what faith can do. When you believe that your faith will win, it will. Jesus can heal your darkest thoughts and deepest misery. He died to ensure your life in eternity! He loves you and will never let you go.

So whether you have faith in Jesus or are still fighting to find the truth, I’m standing with you and praying with you. I encourage you to reach out to a trusted friend, parent, teacher or pastor and seek treatment.

We are losing so many to suicide and HAVE to get BETTER TOGETHER! Reach out, fight together and pursue GREATNESS!

“You are special, you are loved, a perfect reflection of Heaven above. God makes no mistakes, YOU ARE A MIRACLE STORY.” – Matty Mullins.

You truly can succeed in any aspect of your life as long as you believe in yourself, never give up and follow your faith through your actions. God can change you and I believe He will… Once you make up your mind to get better and pursue greatness.



Dear creator, keep creating.

When first creating your own personal brand and/or trying to create content daily, you may feel a sigh of satisfaction and really good about yourself. Millions will start, but who will actually go on the full journey to create the content that changes your generation?

"Yes! I'm finally taking the initiative to get my message out!"

But, it isn't always sunflowers and rainbows.

Creating a platform and staying on top of your brand is hard! Writing blogs, creating video content, graphic design, marketing, social media... The list of priorities keeps going on and on and on! And I'm not complaining at all, I love what I do, but, I do want to encourage you if you're struggling today.

Keep fighting through the fear of failure and the rejections and persecutions you may face. You'll never feel satisfied until you make the mental shift and tell yourself that God made you for more than a 9-5... He made you to lead others to the light.

A letter from the author:

Dear content creators,

You are more than your numbers. You're worth more than a post, tweet, video or article. I know it's hard sometimes!

Your role is NOT easy. Getting rejected for certain projects, not reaching the audience you're aiming for, gaining and losing friends over your message. It can be hard. But if you love what you're doing and are finding Jesus more and more within your creativity AND your personal life, NEVER let slow days or unliked posts leave you empty.

You are NOT your numbers and you have a purpose! Love what you do and keep PRESSING FORWARD.

I believe in you. Don't give up.

Sincerely,
Trevor

Bring Peace Into Your Broken Soul

In times of panic, find your hiding place where it's just you and God and seek healing in prayer.

Peace isn’t easy

When living with depression or just flat out self-doubt, it can be hard to find peace in your everyday lifestyle. Whether you’re out with friends, putting in hours at work or simply reading an article online… you can still feel the pain in your heart. Making sense of the hardships can be hard as you might have accidentally done something to hurt another or potentially didn’t do anything at all and you just feel the extreme sense of guilt rushing through your body and there seems to be nothing causing it and nothing curing it…

Peace is possible

You can house all of the fear and guilt you want to but that doesn’t cover up the fact that Jesus. loves you and can take that fear away from you. He died for this very reason… to ensure our eternity and forgiveness are kept safe as time moves forward. So whether it is you that is struggling or someone you love and care about, remember that Jesus loves you and is the cure for the heartbreak.

Addressing your anxieties

Panic and anxiety can cripple you and make you feel SICK to your stomach, but that is the only temporary. Always remember that… While the symptoms can continue, the feelings will come and go. It isn’t a forever feeling like the love of the Father. In these times of panic and pain, retreat. Go find your hiding place where it is just you and God and seek healing in prayer. Simply make yourself available for healing. With pain comes emotions, with emotions comes heartache, with heartache comes the need for a savior and with the admission of need comes healing.

The journey to a better tomorrow

One thing that I know for a fact that will definitely help you in your journey to healing your soul is finding that comfort in your Heavenly Father. He will be your strongest source of healing and your longterm source of strength… His hand will never leave you. Another thing is to adjust your mindset. Your mindset can be a GAME CHANGER for you in your venture towards healing. Your mind can play tricks on you and defeat you at times, but what if you tricked your own brain?

Start with this simple tool. When you know something that is supposed to upset you or cause you to stumble comes around, force yourself to find peace in your mind and tell yourself that you will NOT let this affect your day. Force that hardship to fall and trust that your sanity and pursuit is better than whatever is going on around you… You are special and unique and are worth so much more than you can ever imagine! Keep being you and FIGHT ON! Choose joy over sadness today!
