I want to take a step back from all the negativity we have seen on the news this week and provide some advice.
Over the last few months, I have gone through a bit of a character change and I have been to the dark places. But I am making a turn around as I am getting myself back in a better state of mind. I want to take this opportunity to prove to people who are having tough times that it’s all temporary pain.
Life is not easy as it will throw you obstacles and road bumps. But what proves who the stronger ones are, they jump the obstacles and don’t allow the road bumps to deter them. You should look at life as a, “Ladder of Success.” As you climb it, you get more of a satisfaction knowing that you are closer to the top of the mountain.
Some ways you can climb this ladder is don’t dwell on small things, you don’t need to put everything on the computer, and if you have problems that are major you should not put your problems in a journal or talk to a therapist. On the first one, when you dwell on the small things you end up blowing everything up and making yourself going crazy. Take it from someone who did this for a while, it’s better to let things you don’t have control over to let it go.
On the putting everything on the computer, there are certain things in your personal life that should not be made public because not everything is everyone’s problem. But you should have at least a few friends on either Facebook or through text messaging that you can talk to about anything.
On the final one, using a journal or talking to a therapist is always beneficial because it is great to have someone outside your circle who you can talk to. In regards to a journal, it is very helpful because you end up writing for hours about what is on your mind.
I wrote this because I went through this and I know people out there are in dark times and feel that their bad times are a permanent thing. Well, I am here to tell you its not and you can get through whatever is hitting you.
I hope I have given you inspiration to better your life and to change your life for the better
