While looking for answers to my own issues on the Internet a name I kept seeing mentioned was Ekhart Tolle but for years I stayed away from his articles and YouTube clips because the way people were putting on such a high pedestal using phrases like " Spiritual teacher " and being " Enlightened " gave the impression of him being some kind of cult leader and it put me right off looking into him as I knew I was vulnerable and the last thing I needed was to have some cult leader messing with and getting into my already confused and fearful mind.
Since I've found myself with a lot of free time since March started and I was in a much better place mentally I decided to check out this Ekhart Tolle bloke and I'm really pleased I did as I couldn't have been more wrong about him if I'd tried :-)
There are some really short clips of 3 to 5 minutes as well as much longer ones available on YouTube of him if anyone's interested in taking a look at him.
He is basically a really nice human being who came through pretty difficult mental illness and decided to learn more about how the mind does what it does and share it with other people, he's also really funny at times too.
If you do check him out try to watch the bit how he rented out a room in his house in Glastonbury :-) really funny story while at the same time very eye opening to how we all get caught up with our thoughts.
Prior to watching him I though the Ego was all about being big headed but it turns out that's not the case at all and our Ego plays a huge role in our mental health struggles, I've found it really interesting as well as very helpful and hope if anyone checks it out they will too.

Hi Berg mate hope you find something that helps in some way in them mate.

We've come a long way in understanding how our bodies work and how to maintain them better but most of us know next to nothing about how our minds work and why we struggle.
We take our thoughts and feelings personal because we think we are producing them when in fact 99.9% of out thoughts are our minds working on auto pilot merely reproducing what got our attention yesterday and the day before again today much like predictive text does, understanding and accepting this helped me so much and helped me break the unhappy and unhealthy thinking trap I'd fallen into.
I very much appreciate like our bodies not all minds suffer with the same things at the same time in the same way but the very basic raw principles are similar, like a GP with the body there are people out there who have good understanding of the mind who can help us all help ourselves, very thankfully.

I wish you so much well Berg mate I truly do and hope like everyone everywhere who is struggling right now you find peace with mind very very soon mate. God bless you mate.
