Everyone has hard times and dark moments in their lives, we all know how it can feel. I have dealt with depression and anxiety for my whole life and there have been some really dark times in my past. Just recently I have experienced one of the darkest moments and I made some not-so-good decisions. However, with the help of those who care for me the most, I saw an opportunity.
now that i have hit rock bottom, the only thing left is for me to stand back up and put my life back together.
I know it will not be easy and I’m going to have to gather all of my inner strength to fight all of the “fires” I have set, but the outcome will be worth it.
I know that dark times will come again, there might not ever be a cure for that, but what I can do is focus on making those times easier and more tolerable. For example, just having people in my life that know everything about me can be the best support system. They are there to tell me when I’m wrong and they are there to push me toward my goals when I have a hard time doing it myself. They also help me keep my goals because when they know everything its hard to disappoint them. I’ve let people down before and I can tell you that it is one of the worst feelings in the world.
a good support system is key to motivation.
Second, I realized that I can pick up all of the broken pieces of my life and put them back together the way I want them to be. I have an opportunity to fix broken parts of myself and my life. This could be relationships, work, school, life goals, work ethic, bad habits, etc.. I’ve always liked projects and now I just imagine my life as a large project that has many little aspects to it. If I work on single parts at a time, the outcome could be pretty amazing and maybe something I can be proud of.
Pride is another thing that I thought about, we all want to feel proud of ourselves but sometimes we need others to see us too. I thought about all of the people in my life and how I want them to look at me. I want them to see someone who works harder than anyone to get what she wants. I want them to see an independent, strong, and selfless person who can take on what is thrown her way and stand up after I fall. I want them to be proud. Sometimes you have to stop and think about the future and how you want things to turn out, then make that dream become reality.
