First of all we all know how quickly things can get ontop of us .
These are the ones we hear about most often when someone is feeling down and less possitive about things and when they feel down, you feel down so what can we do to help ?
We tend to have bias opinions towards our failures and negativity and so our brains are more likely to store and seek out negative memories.
Now there is no way you can wipe clean your memories but you can make the bad ones into good ones by thinking about them in a different way.For instance:-
Losing a loved one:-
Losing a loved one can be heartbreaking and over the years you may find yourself feeling down at the slightest thought of them. For me , It has to be the certain scent of a perume my mum used to wear.
I suddenly feel down and depressed, I want to cry and be with her . Thing is there is always some other memory to replace that memory of losing my mum and the last itme I seen her in the hospital bed and they are always happier moments
It is very easy to sit and feel self pity, blame and anger but if you learn to appreciate the things you have like your friends, family and health and all the great fun memories, it can help you stay possitive.
Things do get better. Your negative feelings wont last forever, forever is only as long as you let it be .
Having low self esteme is also something I have struggled with these past years. It has increased my anxiety to the point where Ii no longer feel worth anything , no confidence , paranoid daily thinking the worst will happen just drained every piece of me and sucked the life from my soul.
Blogging became a great help with starting the recovery for me. The doctors told me to write a journal of my everyday events and seek each days events for something that could be making me feel negative every day. This is why I started blogging, but instead of this I thought why should I write my personal day , instead seeing alot of others writing about possitive things throughout their day made me feel better . I have found this past year I have built up my confidence and my self esteem is slowely buiding to the point I almost feel proud at times, even more so when people love and comment on my blog posts saying they enjoyed reading and loved my post. The best thing is
'' No Panick Attacks for a year''.
