Anxiety and depression are in direct proportion to the perceived loss. The greater the loss, the greater the anxiety and depression. We must separate the imagined losses from the real ones and work on reality. Imagined losses are the product of exaggeration and distortion fed by thinking worrisome thoughts. One can take a small loss and imagine it into a huge loss, all in our minds. Of course the death of close family and friends are very real. God says not to worry about small losses. Can you separate big losses from the small ones?
