A Traveler's Journey
Hope Through Depression and Anxiety And Finding Out We're All in This Together
by Bob Purnell

“A Traveler's Journey” is a collection of insights, shared thoughts, experiences and lessons learned from journeying thru adult life with depression and anxiety. It is my fervent hope and prayer that these shared experiences and reflections will offer some light, hope, encouragement and empowerment to other people who have walked a similar Path. We Are All In This Together. We all have, not just problems, but serious issues. We aren't alone. May this offering point you toward a happier, more connected, state of emotions and mind. May you be encouraged to search for a Higher Power and reach out to others. Each one of us is different, but we all have a unique package of gifts to offer. Lastly, may this be an encouragement for you to love yourself and live in self compassion and inner harmony. Please keep a Light inside your heart and mind, even a small but sure one, every day. It'll sustain you, I promise. May God bless you and walk along with you. And, We're All In This- Together.
