You may be experiencing one or more of the following symptoms of mental illness. Here’s a bit of info with some tips that may help.
It’s helpful to identify the source of your depression.
Once you’ve identified the main reasons you feel depressed you can set yourself a few simple goals to accomplish each day that will help you overcome those challenges. Your happiness will increase with each goal completed.
One example might be to set a goal to exercise 30 minutes every day to help your body wake up and feel energized.
Anxiety comes from a fear of the unknown future. Planning and preparing can go a long way to reducing and preventing anxiety.
Consider each day as an opportunity to prepare for the future. Creating daily goals and prioritizing those that are most important to you will help you to tackle the unknown with confidence and surety in yourself.
Building confidence this way can be a gradual process of self discovery, and overtime you will begin to recognize and appreciate the huge strides you’ve made.
Some people enjoy being alone more than others. If you feel alone right now, realize you’re not the only one.
The difficult thing about loneliness is having the courage to find someone else that is lonely, and introducing yourself. Your next best friend most likely won’t be the most popular one in the center of attention. Instead, he or she will be found just around the perimeter of the circle, just like you.
Making friends requires becoming a good friend, a great listener, and having a solid sense of humor.
Guilt is the feeling that comes when you recognize you’ve made a mistake.
Guilt is motivation to make correction in our lives that will help us to be happier. Overcoming guilt requires sincere regret, courageously mending the damage caused, and a strong resolve not to repeat the mistake.
Everyone screws up. But just as a small rudder can steer a large ship, acting on our motivation to change can steer our lives toward happiness and peace.
