It’s not often I get to say that I’m happy. Even less often I get to say that I’m in some sort of happiness spell where things generally seem to be going okay. Currently, I feel like I’m in that spell and it’s refreshing after spending months of battling everything and everyone – for what seemed like no reason. The best part of it, is that I can say I’m currently comfortable in my own little private world, and yeah, there might be stress induced by work and looming deadlines, sleepless nights and exhausting days but I’m okay with that, finally. It’s nice knowing that things might be taking a 180 degree turn and heading uphill. Or at least staying maintained while I gear myself up for the climb.
It’s time like this that positivity generally hits me. People suffering from the decreasing moods over months knows that it’s too easy to fall into a state of negativity. Constantly battling your own voices inside your head that tells you it will never get better. It’s easy to believe those voices too and you’ll probably end up in a deeper ditch than you started off by listening to them. But here’s the kicker, with enough persistence to carry on, it can and will get better. I tell you this with confidence. As a person who dips up and down quite frequently, I can tell you that no matter what you’re going through – whether seemingly insignificant (although I’ve mentioned this before, never ever ever think your problems are insignificant, even if you’re crying over spilt milk) or whether it’s life altering – it will get better. Never give up, because giving up means giving in, and giving in means it’s over and you’ve succumbed to the voices that plagued you.
In the next couple of days, I intend to write a little step-by-step guide that helped me, and will hopefully help you, dear reader, into finding out yourself. Into finding out what you can do to improve your current situation. I never want you to feel alone, and I promise you, for as long as I’m around, you never will be. My email and my twitter are there for a reason – I’m here to listen. I’m frequently told that people are too scared to email or tweet me about things in case I don’t reply or that I’m too busy, but I promise you, I’ll never be too busy. You all mean the world to me, and for the amount of times you lovely people have helped me, I want to be here to help you.
