Hello everybody.I think this off-topic conversation post will help us all who mostly suffer from anxiety/sadness/depression[may not b true for all] along with bfs part.Here r the some points to manage anxiety/depression.1-Know that if u do not live within the scope of today,your thoughts will b scattered,your affairs will become confused,and your worrying will increase-these realities explain 'when u r in the morning,do not expect to c the evening,and when u r in the evening, do not expect to c the morning'.2-Forget the bad memories of past.3-Do not b preoccupied with the future.Becoz the future is in the world of the unseen,do not let it bother u until it comes.I think this very important.4-Do not b shaken by criticism;instead b firm.And know that,in proportion to ur worth,the level of people's critisism rises.5-Faith in GOD and do good deeds;these r the ingredients that make up a good and happy life.6-whoever desires peace,tranquility and comfort can find it all in the remembrance of GOD.7-U should know with certanity that everything that happens,occurs in accordance with a divine decree.8-DO not expect gratitude from anyone.9-Train yourself to b ready and prepared for the worst eventualities.10- Perhaps what has happened is in your best interest[though u may not comprehend how that is so].11-Enumerate the blessings of GOD and b thankful for them.12-You r better off than many others -see the persons who r in bad condition than u.12-Calamities should strengthen ur heart and reshape your outlook in a positive sense.13-Indeed,with each difficulty thereis relief.14-Do not let trifles b the cause of your distruction.14-Do not b angry,do not b angry,do not b angry .15-Life is bread,water and shade;so do not b perturbed by lack of any other material things.16-Most evil that is supposed happen NEVER OCCURS.17-When GOD loves a people ,he makes them endure trials.18-Work hard at something that is productive,and cast off idleness.19-Dont spread rumors and dont listen them.If u hear a rumor inadvertently,then dont believe it.20-Lastly, the hardship that befall you atone for your sins.These points helped me alot personally fighting myself against bfs trouble and associated fears.Equally this board and you all nice[always reassuring] people in this forum have also played an imp role in my life during initial stages of fears.Theres one book named DONT B SAD written by mr.Aaidh al-Qarni which is an exellent book i ever read.Most of the citations r taken from it. I think this shall b a very useful thread for all bfs sufferers.stopping now coz its becoming a long post. Takecare everyone...REGARDS,,,,,,,,Baily.

21. Know the difference between happiness and Joy. Happiness and sadness are human emotions, that can come and go with the wind. Joy is a timeless, enduring, divine force that can be experienced when living in harmony with the Will of ones own soul.
