DON’T BLAME OTHER PEOPLE for your even worse decisions: It’s horrible when something traumatic happens but I think it’s even worse when you don’t take responsability for your actions. Don’t be a victim: GROW UP! You can decide if you want to spend a week in a bed or you can make a really big effort and take steps. Don’t you feel like going out? Do it! You don’t know if you’re going to learn something or someone new. Hey, maybe you even enjoy the change of environment. Feel tired? Do some exercises. Maybe your body is used to being lazy, maybe your body needs to recharge batteries moving the muscles. Staying still is not going to make you go anywhere pal. Go to a mountain, hike, ride a bicycle, breathe fresh air and appreciate life instead of feeling sorry for your past or current situations.
DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT NOW! And this advice comes from a person who has been struggling with depression for 25 and a half years of existence. Believe me, I’ve been there. Have you always wanted to go to a volcano? A restaurant? A city? A country? Learn how to play piano, guitar? Go to a concert? Play sports? Learn a new language? Live abroad? Travel the world? If you’re not in the place you want to be, doing the things you want to do and love, you need to start making brand new decisions TODAY and study the ones who are where you want to be.
STOP MAKING EXCUSES: I have problems, I don’t have money, I’m sad, I’m tired, I don’t feel like it, I’m not in shape, I don’t have a good physical condition, I’m too old, I’m too young, I don’t have experience and my favorite I can’t, it’s impossible. The list is infinite and I’m sure you’ve repeated some of this phrases over and over. Well, shut up, BELIEVE YOU CAN DO IT AND AGAIN: TAKE ACTIONS, MAKE CHANGES, LEARN FROM MISTAKES, STOP DOING THE SAME THINGS.
