Dianetics saved my life. I know that sounds like a cliché but it is the truth.
Some years ago, I really hit rock bottom when my girlfriend in a long-term relationship suddenly left me. Of course this would hurt anyone but it hit me hard. Very hard.
I went into heavy depression to the point where I could not operate in life. I had no energy and just wanted to close my eyes and let sleep take me. And I did – I slept for hours during the day! It affected my survival because I had no drive to do anything so I stopped working. Even when I tried to work, I couldn’t concentrate because all I could think of was this girl and how I couldn’t live without her. It became a serious issue because I wasn’t even making a living after a couple of months.
My heart was beating and my body was breathing but, as a person, I was as good as dead.
I knew of Dianetics and when things got really bad I decided to see what Dianetics therapy could do for me. I went in to the centre in Jo’burg and signed up for a few hours of counselling.
It wasn’t anything like I expected a “therapy session” to be but I just let the Dianetics guy guide along. At some point in the second session, something “clicked” and all the pain and depression I was carrying around just blew. It was like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders and it just wasn’t there anymore!
I didn’t “need” this girl – I had been living my whole life without her before we met! Ok, it seems logical now but for whatever reason I had some sort of mental block that kept me down and it was Dianetics that helped me feel and see clearly again.
That’s why I say Dianetics saved my life.
