Have you ever been in a funk where you’re just feeling down? You want to do something but you let the time past you by. What do you do? How can you over come it? Well I thought of some tips that could help.
Find out what’s wrong.
- Are you depressed?
- Does it feel like you hit rock bottom?
- Are you comparing yourself to other people’s success?
If you are depressed or think that you are SEEK HELP! Don’t be afraid to go to a family member, friend, or a counselor.
No, I’ve never been depressed but I’ve seen people go through it. Someone could have everything going great for them but still be depressed. Depression is a disease and it must be treated. It’s not a 24 hour cure or a 7 step program. It’ll take time.
If you’re scared to talk to someone there are anynomous hotlines such as DBSA. To get out of depression you must seek help or if someone you know have depression help them. They need to know they aren’t alone.
Have you hit rock bottom? Well there’s an upside to that because you can’t go down any further.
For me I’m a planner and like to write things down so if something unexpected comes up I sometimes can’t handle it especially if it has to do with money. For me money isn’t everything but it will get you out of situations when you need to like finding a new place to live or paying bills. For others it could be family, relationship, work, or school problems. Which can be an easy fix sometimes.
We all have to go through difficult times. We all have different solutions on how to succeed. One thing that helps me is finding something that is positive. It could be a quote, poem, song, speech, a person, or whatever. Go to what is positive every time you hit rock bottom to remind yourself THIS ISN’T IT! Remind yourself until you believe it.
Say this out loud.
My name is (insert first and last name). I’m not Beyoncé, a Kardashian, Kanye, or the Queen of England so why should I compare myself to them. We aren’t the same. We don’t have the same up bringing. I don’t even look like them.
Repeat if you need to.
We put so much pressure on ourselves. We are here to do our own great act. We might not have found it yet but it’s coming. Keep looking and comparing yourself to others and you’ll miss your opportunity to shine.
Once we stop comparing ourselves it’ll be easier for us to focus on what’s important which is ourselves.
One big tip I want you to get out of this post is loving ourselves. We are our biggest victory but we can also be our biggest downfall.
I hope these tips help. If so don’t forget to like this post and share it with someone you know.
