Free Your Mind
By Darryl Diptee
I’ve read a ton of self-help books on anxiety and controlling emotions. This one tops the list. Not only does the author explain how to get yourself out of negative mental states, but he also explains how we get ourselves there in the first place, and how to recognize the patterns. I’ve been suffering on and off with anxiety and depression for nearly 14 years. I never realized the power of one tiny thought and how it can cause so much pain.
ALL thoughts should uplift you and the current situation in a positive, supportive way, and if they don’t, then immediately reject them as toxic, poisonous, garbage! Why? Because in a life that can end in any given moment, why would you ever deliberately allow unhappy or painful thoughts to take root in your mind and manifest in your body for even a second?
Some of the book contains common advice that I find (for myself) a need for reiteration, so none of it felt repetitive to me, but others might find these parts redundant. Having a chronic illness seems to almost redirect my brain toward anxiety with each new ailment; then the need to distract my brain arises. It’s interesting how the author explains the brain and how it works in a survival pattern to remove us from pain, and how these thoughts are truly unintentional. I found these sections most helpful for myself.
So, why do so many people settle for a life of pain, when a life full of success, love, growth, and fulfillment is so easily within reach? The answer is simple: they’re not exercising control of their minds and are trapped in survival mode, constantly reacting to avoid pain. There is no rule stating that you ever have to be depressed, unfulfilled, or angry. Such negative emotions don’t serve you and only disrupt your peace while moving you further away from achieving your goals in life.
Whenever you are wading in a pool of negative thoughts and emotions it’s important to realize that in those moments you are no longer exercising control of your mind and that you have relinquished that control to unintentional thoughts fueled by a chaotic universe.
This book is one of the most positive, insightful, and helpful mental health books I’ve read. It’s written well and very easy to follow. I highly recommend this to anyone suffering from anxiety, depression, unwanted thoughts, or those looking for change in their lives.

When you were a kid you had so many dreams and aspirations, what happened to those dreams? In a word? Life. Like many others before you, chances are you traded those wonderful dreams for a sense of practicality and social acceptance. Unfortunately, there was a much deeper consequence you didn’t realize when you made that decision. Not only did you give up your dreams, but on a subconscious level you also gave up your freedom to live the life you want to live. You mentally entered a cage, locked it shut, shackled yourself, and sat there feeling safe because the bars of the cage would protect you from the pain of failure. Escaping the cage begins with the realization that even if you’re very wealthy and having fun in the cage, you’re still not free if fear remains your master while you are the slave.
