I have talked about positivity many times in my blogs, and it is a concept that I am still obsessed with today. As much as I focus on staying positive I can still, at times, I feel myself sliding down the depression slope. And it is a slippery slope.
I know that I despise being in this place, but life is not always going to be perfect. I have learned to not only accept this, but to be aware of it. When I am able to see and admit there is a problem, I am able to fix it and snap out of it faster.
This requires being really honest with myself, my family, and my friends. I tell them how I am feeling and why I think I feel that way. We then brainstorm ideas to fix the issue.
I feel extremely blessed to have the family and friends that I have, and I understand that many people are not as fortunate. If this is you; find a support group, or perhaps a life coach that can help you talk it out when times get tough.
If you find yourself sliding down the slope, think about all the things you are grateful for. And find a support system! But most importantly, find a solution. Because a life filled with depression and sleeping all day is not a very fulfilling life at all.
Until next week,
