We’ve all heard that old saying, “The sun will come out tomorrow” but we never feel like tomorrow comes soon enough. Depression is a thing that a majority of people will go through at some point in their lives and it can be mentally and physically draining. Waking up each day while in a depressed rut can be one of the toughest daily tasks one can deal with on a daily basis. Stress in my life is the main cause of depression which can be caused by even the simplest things such as our job, our significant other, debt, or even the type of food you ingest. It can be a lot to deal with especially on your own.
There are ways to deal with depression and I don’t mean going to a specialist and spending a ton of money on multiple visits a month because that solution doesn’t work for everyone. It’s always good to find someone who can bring out the best part of you and can motivate you to try. Trying is the key to starting on a happier life but you have to be willing to do it because your life won’t change unless you do. There are different ways to “try.” It can be as simple as getting out of bed with a smile. No matter what you “try” to change, you need to know that you have to believe in yourself more than anything and that will lead to others believing in you.
Like the name of this post, every storm runs out of rain but it does take time. It’s not going to be an over night change but you’ll notice one day when you’re walking down the sidewalk looking up at the sun that you’re smiling on your own for no reason. Maybe someday you could be the reason for someone else’s smile and even the reason they themselves aren’t suffering from depression. Keep your head up and remember that if nobody else does, I believe in you.
