Three years ago, I was under depression because I was living like there's no hope in my future. I thought I was going crazy, but looking back on those years, how ugly is it the condition had turned me over and arose the anxiety within me? How did that dark situation snatch the happiness within me?
If I could give you the answer, a simple one, maybe because I, myself let that happened.
What's the story again?
Oh, living with depression. Everyone had that situation where a little they felt sad, angry and so much pain in which leads to depression. I'm not very sure, because I am not a professional life coach but from what I've seen and heard, everyone that I know who had depression symptoms were initially triggered by the problems they had.
And most of it because of coming from poverty, fired from a job, unemployed, sickness, and much more. Basically, maybe the roots of it are from money. But, if money really can make someone happy, why some rich people still end up with misery? Therefore, I guess the depression started because of us.
I don't know, but maybe?
The choices are made by you!
Every single day, we were given a choice to pick, a choice to whether get up early or not, to start journaling or not, to buy a meal or to cook? and much more! It happened to everyone, we were struggling to pick an easy choice, what else for a tough choice?
Okay, maybe it's not happening to everyone, not everyone had a choice every day.
Whatever the situation is, there's at least once a person had to make a choice, right? Make a better choice.
Regarding depression, I know that it's not we choose to be in that situation. No one was proud of having that thought of losing happiness, overwhelmed by problems, and worst end up their life. But, if we think again if I had a choice or you had a choice to pick happiness instead of focusing on the problem, definitely we would choose happiness, right?
The problem is, we were too focusing on the problem that we had, our shortcomings, and too busy to compare ourselves with others. And sometimes, our desire to pursue the perfect life had turned over our life when it is not achievable.
Like someone said, it's okay to not have everything, what more valuable is yourself.
Your health, mental health, physical health, and everything should be protected. Instead of creating unnecessary things inside your head, choose to think about a good thing, at least it won't burden you too much about your current situation.
Live, Love, and laugh
We live once. Only once. It's true that we sometimes trap in troubles with life, or we don't really have everything that eventually turns us into depressed. It's okay to feel that way sometimes, no one is perfect but we still learn every day through living.
There's a lot of people out there that I've seen, walking on the streets sending their children off to school, an old couple of husband and wife works really hard to feeds their families, and even kids selling on the street to help their parent.
Comparing with a family that had everything, they still live happily, some of them have a problem, especially in money terms, job, or place to stay, but still, they kept living and happy with the imperfection of their life.
Learn from them, they live, with happiness, and they love what they do, while they can still laugh with their family although were in inadequate. Life to short for unhappiness, lives, love, and laugh with what you have right now.
We can live in joyfulness in any sort of life we had, we don't have to wait for a perfect time, now is the time to live in a simple way, yet in grateful life. Nevertheless, don't stress up too much, it's not good for your mental health. Live peacefully.
