Don't Live Your Life On Repeat
I do not want to harp too much on my story for the last few months, but today I want to talk to you a little bit more about what I went through. I was in a really dark place where, honestly, I wanted to give up, and I am just going to be totally honest and transparent with you guys. I got to the point where I felt like everything was going wrong in my life, I felt trapped in my situation, it felt like I was drowning at times, and honestly, I just wanted to give up. That is a really hard thing to admit but it is the cold hard truth. I wanted to give up. I was questioning God, and I was going through all of those things that we all go through like that. So if you are in that position right now then this is a message that you NEED to hear.
Now even though I felt like I was at my lowest low, in the midst of all of that I had to know what I was truly fighting for and living for. And I am going to tell you this, life has a tricky way of making you forget what and who you are truly living for. Now, like I said I am just going to be honest and real here. I am just going to be straight up with you guys today. When I was in the middle of all of my sadness and depression I was living my life on repeat. I was doing the same things that were just diving me deeper and deeper in my depression. I was doing the same things and the same routines over and over and over and over again, hoping for a change, praying for a change, and hoping for a miracle. I wanted things to change for me so bad but I was only doing the things that were keeping me stagnant. I was doing the same things that were worse for my mental health.
Now I want to relate this to your situation right now. Obviously I do not know the exact situation of anyone on the other side of these words reading this blog right now, but I can tell you this: If you are living your life day in and day out doing the same things that kept you sad in the first place over and over again and you are expecting change to come, you will be waiting for a long long time. If you want to be happy then you have to pursue the things that bring you joy. You also have to be willing to let go of the things that are going to keep you from being happy. There are things in your life right now that are holding you back and keeping you stagnant that you are holding onto. You have to be willing to let go of the thing that is hurting you and keeping you sad if you ever want to have a shot at being happy again.
It all starts with you.
