positive mental attitude

getting outside of yourself

so today i was feeling down & super introverted. i usually eat my feelings here (like actually, i overeat & emotionally eat & it has been something that i’ve been struggling with for a while now). this usually propels into a crazy binge fest that lasts for a few days & makes me feeling insanely guilty.

yet somehow i found it inside of me to get outside of myself!

how did i do this? well for starters, it took motivation and resilience. yet what helped me most was keeping a positive mental attitude about things. it is so easy to make assumptions and that can get in the way of every day life. i conquered my fears by moving forward and pushing myself to put myself out there & socialize.

if you are struggling, here is some encouragement: YOU CAN DO THIS! you are the key to your happiness, you are your greatest limit. you can move forward & all that takes is you.

Some days, I can’t see clear, I can’t think. I wake up in an endless haze, unable to determine one day from the next. I long for clarity. I long for sunshine so bright, clouds don’t stand a chance.

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

Some nights, I wonder if overcoming depression is really an option for me.
I feel like I deserve this.
I’ll never amount to anything, I tell myself.
Why not just continue in my self harm addiction, and live in isolation?
My heart is heavy
My eyes are heavy
My thoughts are heavy
My body is heavy
All that’s left to do is indulge in a cry, and console myself.
Because if I don’t love myself, who will?
