The hardest part of my journey was finding which direction to face, where to start.
Every website and every counsellor seemed to start in the middle as they tried to find a root, something to grab hold of and work through to reveal the other pieces because let’s face it, we don’t know where to start either.
Having gone down that route didn’t solve the greater issue, a consistent problem that wasn’t going away — me. I needed to solve me and I wanted to work through my problems so I could become a better man, so I could take control away from my anxiety and anger.
The pieces I found worked for me, I worked on them every day until they uncovered another ugly piece that I needed to face. but the one piece that everything else was built on, and I can’t stress this enough, the one thing that started it all, was personal responsibility and something called the Locus of Control.
