Maybe you are having one of those bad days this week. Maybe you think that nothing you do seems to work and your motivation is just low.
Your confidence is shaken by all the negative thoughts swirling in your head, and maybe you feel like you are not worthy of anything.
Let me tell you something. Every human being was or still is in the place where you are now. You need to take a deep breath and slow down.
Life is all about perspective. Your emotions and feelings depend on your perspective and how you see things.
If you are feeling down, it doesn’t mean you are incapable of anything or have major character flaws.
Feeling down can have a tremendous impact on your decisions.
That feeling is very normal to have, but after a certain time, it rather becomes a choice. Remember, you are not alone.
Happiness and sadness are two feelings that always come and go. Sometimes you are happy about something and sometimes you are sad. It is the nature of life.
We have all been through some troublesome times and it might seem that the world is stacked against you. Remember, you have the ability to change that.
You can turn your life around. Your darkest moments will pass and you will shine brighter than ever.
Maybe you just need a few words to encourage you to see another perspective.
Every mistake you make is just another lesson to learn.
You don’t need to be discouraged by your mistakes or by words that someone tells you. Embrace them and learn from them.
You are in control of your life
You may feel that you’re not because you think that things have gotten out of control, but they haven’t.
Maybe you lost your job, or the person you loved left you, and those things might make you feel hopeless.
However, after the rain comes the sun. There is always hope for something better to happen.
Maybe after losing your job, you will find something that you genuinely love doing, or maybe your next boyfriend will be the love of your life.
These things that are happening right now are only there temporarily.
You have the power over your life; you create your own opportunities and you have the strength to get yourself out of any situation you may be in.
Your confidence might be low right now, but after you take your time and maybe ask for some outside help, the feelings you have right now will disappear and your perspective will completely change.
Change is great
It is hard to see ways to get better when you are in a mess of negativity.
However, change means that you are shifting yourself toward something different. Now it is up to you to steer the wheel to something better.
You may need to let go of some things or some people that slow you down, and this can be messy.
Give yourself time and space to think about the things that are important to you.
Question yourself and your actions because when things are messy, that is when true change happens.
Maybe you needed a little meltdown just to recognize your priorities and to put yourself first, above others.
Stop criticizing yourself
I know that people expect way too much from you but why are you expecting so much from yourself? Don’t put a lot of pressure on yourself.
For you to be mentally healthy and in a good place, you have to slow down, reflect, and focus on the good things that are present in your life.
It is fantastic that you aspire for greatness, but pressuring yourself will not make you happier.
Instead, prioritize the things that bring you joy and calmness.
Know what you are grateful for. There is so much joy and happiness around you but through the darkness, you cannot see it.
Don’t sit around and wait
I know you feel like doing nothing, just lying in your bed or sleeping all day. But tell me, what is the purpose of that?
You won’t feel better after. Therefore, you should get up and maybe exercise a little bit because it will definitely boost your mood.
It might seem tough now, but afterward, you will feel great physically and mentally.
It is scientifically proven that exercising boosts your mood and makes you feel better about yourself.
Go for a walk or run for five minutes. You shouldn’t be lying in your bed all day and feeling sorry for yourself.
You are love-worthy
No matter how bad or unloved you feel right now, remember you have your family, who support you despite everything, even if you may think the love they are giving you right now is not enough for your anxiety to disappear.
My advice is not to push them away because you will feel even lonelier then.
Your relationships with them might take a wrong turn, and you will blame yourself for that.
Our biggest enemy is the thoughts in our brain. It tricks us into feeling unloved and unwanted.
You may think your family are working against you, but they love you for who you are, unconditionally.
Your feelings are temporary
A lack of confidence, self-respect, or self-love are all feelings that might hit you from time to time.
But just like a storm, the next day there will be sunshine.
Your current state is something that will change, just give it time. As I said, it is our brain that plays tricks on us.
Those feelings don’t last as long as we expect them to.
You are a wonderful person
Never forget how beautiful and extraordinary you are. I know that you are sad right now and you are focusing on the things you don’t like.
Just stop thinking about them. Otherwise, it will create a ripple effect and you will create problems where there are none.
Imagine your life as a never-ending process of growth. You recognize your mistakes and the things you don’t like and you change them.
You should reject bad thoughts and notice your exceptional qualities. Once you focus on them, you will see there is more to like about you than to dislike.
Learn to love yourself and strive to be a better person tomorrow.
