A few excerpts from my third book “A Cure for Anxiety”

Featured

Introduction. What will you learn from this book? This book is divided into four chapters, each of which deals with a separate aspect of anxiety, worry and fear. In chapter one, I outline what anxiety, worry and fear are (among other things, I give their definitions). In chapter two, I describe the negative sides of living with anxieties. In chapter three, I give reasons for getting rid of most (or all) anxieties. In chapter four, I introduce ideas related to anxieties and describe how to do practical exercises to 'work through' anxieties in order to deal with them effectively."

Commentary on a few sentences by Fr Jaroslaw Grabowski (spiritual developmet issues)

Fr Jarosław Grabowski writes: "Of course, there are different categories of religiously indifferent people. (…) The largest group, however, are - as pastors and catechists will confirm - those who baptise their children, lead them to First Holy Communion, get married in church, bury their dead in the Catholic way and show up at the temple for Pasterka (...)"

“A cure for anxiety”: some excerpts from my 3rd book

Featured

"In this section of the book, I want to share what I fear, what my fears are. I fear (November 2022) only two things (situations or events): I fear the justice of God (who, after my death, will judge my thoughts, words and deeds committed during my earthly life) and the sudden death of my beloved wife. Other than that, I am not afraid of anything or anyone. You may wonder: "How is this possible?"

Emotions and their impact on our lives.

Despite the growing focus on EQ, a globall deficit in understanding and managing emotions remains. Only 36 percent of the people we tested are able to accurately identify their emotions as they happen. This means that two thirds of us are typically controlled by our emotions and are not yet skilled at spotting them and using them to our benefit. "

“Meanwhile, how many of us would give much, perhaps even everything, to turn back time…” (Fr Jarosław Grabowski)

Time passes and during our lives we make better or worse choices that have consequences. Time cannot be turned back, we can only live in the here and now. And it is right here and now that our lives are happening. Maybe we made mistakes in the past that we regret, maybe we didn't act with dignity with our values, maybe we were not ok to other people, maybe we were blinded by work, by the money we earned or maybe by jealousy, maybe we didn't work on ourselves, on our character - so many mistakes we could have made and often did.
