I, personally, have struggled with depression in the past. And it’s not something that was easy to overcome, there’s no switch in your brain that can make you forget all the not-so-good feelings you have inside. Everyone’s battle is different, and winning the war takes a lot of time. But fortunately, I am in a better stage of my life now. Of course, it has its ups and downs but I’m smarter or wiser or healthier now, and I know how to handle the downs more or less.
But lately, I have been feeling the downs creeping in. With a mounting workload, you sometimes feel this paralysing fear.
“Where do I begin to tackle any of this?”
“I don’t know, honey.”
Moving on, so to help me keep calm and carry on, I decided to challenge myself to think positively for 30 days. The aim is to share love, give thanks, and keep hope.
- Dedicate each day to one thing you are grateful for, or happy about
- 30 days overall not necessarily consecutively
- Keep it as positive as possible but keeping it real (minimal sugar coating)
I wrote this a while ago, and the stress of uni is now over, but I thought the intention is pretty nice. So I will try it anyway. Wish me good luck.
If you wanna try it too, go ahead. Enjoy!
