Does it sometimes feel like life is unfair?
Does it feel like you are always in some sort of battle?
If yes.... I understand. My life is always one thing or another.
When I tell people the amount of shit I have been through they straight out tell me "how can you be so happy?"
First and foremost I constantly remind myself what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Second, I count my blessings.
Even now as my depression has reared its ugly head I got up in the morning and was thankful to have a roof over my head, food in my fridge, an amazing supportive husband and 2 healthy kids.
When life has you at the bottom of that steep hill remind yourself of the good and the things you have overcome.
Our own attitude can make a world of difference on our situation. It's ok to cry or yell, be angry, be mad. But make sure to eventually pick yourself up, dust yourself off and remember tomorrow is another day.
