If you, like me, have ever hit rock bottom, then you as well as I both know that no matter how much you believe there’s no escape route to the bottomless ditch, that we’re both living proof of life carrying on and things turning out for the better.
Even when you’re angry, try forcing yourself to smile; they (the internet or some scientist of some sort) say that it would make you feel significantly better even when the going gets tough.
Happiness is not an object that sits on your nightstand. It does not wait for you to wake up, to have you put it on after you brush your teeth and put on your watch. Happiness is not an object- it is a mental or emotional state of well-being.
There is a difference between going onto Twitter and making fun of yourself for burning the roof of your mouth your pizza bites (been there) and constantly using it as a way to poke at things you just don’t happen to be into.
The beauty of solitude is that it restores us while loneliness depletes us.
Don’t get me wrong it has been tough, I have wanted to give up and throw in the towel but the key point is that I haven’t. So I wanted to share some positivity, to let others know that they are going to be okay in the long run, it just takes some time.
I don’t know what job I’ll be getting out of college, I don’t know what my final GPA is yet, I don’t know pretty much anything about my life but here is what I do know: I know I am young and more carefree than I ever will be.
OK, so maybe you don’t have a 401K and choose Seamless over a stocked fridge. There’s still a good chance you’re on your A-game overall.
By doing things in our daily life that help us to attune to the positive and that boost our mood, we can actually change the neural pathways in our brain.
