Although it took several years for me to bounce back and fight my depression, I was able to fight back and am still fighting today.
Sometimes the world seems gray, lifeless, and hostile but what you need to remember and look forward to are the good things that have happened, are happening, and will be happening.
For me personally the things that help to keep me up are where I am in life, my skills and talents, the people I can confidently call my best friends, and support and love from my family and all those around me. Even small things such as the beauty of nature or a simple song should be taken into account.
Yes I will have to admit that focusing on the positive in life is so much more difficult compared to focusing on the negatives in life but doing so will help you advance in life rather than stay stagnant.
As you can clearly see through these two posts, focusing on the negative is so much easier compared to focusing on the positive in life but doing so will allow you to not only help yourself but also other’s that may be going through the same thing.
If there’s one piece of advice that I want you to take away from me sharing my story of depression, it’s to always look on the bright side, find the silver lining, and remember that it will get better.
