Sigh Baba Sayeth #45

Opportunities are often missed when we constantly focus on our problems – Steven Atchison

Why don’t you and the “Problems are opportunities in disguise” guy go out and settle it as men?? – Sigh Baba (aka me)


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. I was, and am suffering from depression and things had gotten out of control. I had chronicled it in my posts, but I have removed them. Not because I wanted to hide that facet of my life; if that were the case, I wouldn't be writing this. But I was lucky to come across many, many wonderful people out here who helped me. Even if it was just to post and tell me I wasn't alone. I can't tell you how thankful I am for all of you. I've tried since, to tell my own story as an attempt at catharsis (didn't work) and as a means of telling others that they weren't alone either, not in their depression, nor in their cutting or burning, nor in their thoughts of and attempts at suicide. So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost dark self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on. I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice. I am a depressive, have been for some time, so some things do trigger me for no rhyme or reason; I don't expect anyone to understand that this happens, just maybe accept that it does. If not, I am sorry.

  2. So many times it seems by focusing on a given problem it only becomes magnified. I’ve seen that by adjusting focus on something else, that problem sometimes (not all the time) is resolved. Amazing when that happens!! ❤

      • You have no idea how a part of me loves to chew on a problem until it is so huge that I am now dying. When that happens I have to drag myself mentally, give myself a stern shake, and say STOP IT NOW! *sigh* Worry gets me nowhere but more worry and ulcer bubbles in stomach. BIG decision to leave that problem alone and move on, having faith that somehow I will survive and not die a terrible death. LOL SO many times this has happened …. 😉

      • I know that feeling… Not to that extent I’m sure, but I do… Sorry if this brought out bad memories. Some jokes do that.

      • No not at all, Dr. Hb. This just brings to mind my resolution to NOT ruminate on problems. I’ve come to learn when I think negatively about something, that “energy” seems to feed the existing problem and only makes it worse, at least it does in my “mind”. Thank YOU for the reminder to stay positive and what may look “bad” is really not. 🙂 ❤
