When you’re stuck in a rut, no matter what someone tells you, it usually goes in one ear and out the other and only a few bits actually get absorbed.
Repeat these to yourself and do it often – no matter how crazy you think you may sound!
Everything will work out.
It will. As long as you’re putting one foot in front of the other, no matter how hard it may be, you will make progress.
And, don’t forget …
Things will get better.
They will! Bad periods of time can last for a few days or maybe even a year or more, but, it will get better.
You are important.
Everything you do matters. When you’re at your lowest, continue to do things that make you feel good. By helping others with even the smallest of deeds, you can make a profound impact on their lives. When you see how much you can accomplish within, you become more aware that you’re worthy of great things! It may not feel like it now, but, persistence makes progress.
Even though you may be consumed with depression or feelings of self-doubt, you have to remember that you’re lovable. Everyone deserves support in times of need. If someone attempts to offer you a hug or sincere words of encouragement, take them and embrace the possibilities they can bring toward a brighter day.
The time is now to stop thinking so much about how bad things may be at the moment, and instead start trying as hard as you can to think about positive ideas for the future.
I understand it can be hard to see clearly when you’re consumed with negative thoughts.But, keep telling yourself, this too shall pass. A positive attitude can change your life.
The best part about all of this, is that when you make it through these storms, they lead you on the path to be who you really are.
Lastly, don’t ever forget,
You are strong! You can do this!
Be patient and push forward, the best is yet to come!
