There are days where people become dark and days where people shut the world out. What do you do when those days become your life, when you’re sitting in your room thinking about all the bad things that have happened and how your life is at a standstill and you feel stuck in a rut and like nothing is going your way? What do you do? What do you do when it’s come to the point where you’re faking a smile and pretending to be happy for the sake of everyone else. You don’t want to explain what’s wrong because your emotions are all over the place and you don’t know where to begin. You feel like no one cares and like you’re talking to a wall. What do you do when you’re filled with darkness and you just want to sleep your pain away. You just want life to pass you by while you sit and feel sorry for yourself. You want to sit alone in the dark, drown yourself in your music and cry yourself to sleep. You want to wake up in the morning look in the mirror and remember the things you wanted to forget. What do you do? What do you do when your days become the same and the feeling is only pain? Do you give up or give in? What do you when you’ve lost the motivation and energy to get by each day? What do you do when your inner demons attack you and leave you so broken you don’t know what to do?
I’ll tell you. It isn’t easy to drag yourself out of a deep state of depression. It isn’t easy to tell yourself that things will eventually get better. Sometimes the anger and the pain gets the best of us but no matter what you’re going through pain is only temporary if you allow it to be. Stop sitting around feeling sorry for yourself and make something out of nothing. No one can help you if you make it hard for them to get through to you. No one can read minds and you can’t expect for them to know what’s going on. Don’t let your thoughts eat you alive. Whatever it is that you’re going through it will get better in time trust and believe that, just think positive and stop letting the negative outweigh the good. Especially if you’re young, you have your whole life to live, stop letting little things stress you and if nothing is going your way it’s because something bigger and better is in store for you in the long run. Be patient, have faith and believe that the misery won’t last forever. I know having someone tell you that things will get better will not change anything but you are in charge of how you think feel and react to whatever curve ball life may throw at you. Just don’t give up too easily put up a fight and try your hardest, if you can’t do it alone confide in your support system or find it in yourself to get through it but living life isn’t easy and everyone knows that.
