I know I'm kind of late to the show here, but I persevere by remembering what I hope for. It can be different for everyone. For me, I have faith that there is more to this life than I can see or feel. And my hope is in the promise that I will be restored in the afterlife. For others, it can be hope for things to be better in this life in their future. Regardless though, it's ok to be depressed and allow yourself time to grieve about things but it is important to set yourself limits on how long you are going to do so. Try adding positive things to your life, even if it's in little increments.

Thank you everyone for posting!

I love the insight shared. So much to think about. I will reflect on this from time to time.


Lately I've been trying SO hard to re-wire my brain. I'm trying to focus on positive things, and remind myself that there is always hope. These are themes I have seen in all your posts and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing.


What is your go to coping skill in times of extreme stress?


Thanks,
HD7970ghz

Hello! When the going gets tough, I try to take a step back from everything and try to remember my self care. I take a bubble bath, sit with my plants, and make sure I eat healthy. I also try to surround myself with my friends and positive influences in my life. These things often make me feel distracted from my life event, and give me a reason to smile.

Take things day by day. It is hard to see the good in the every day, but even if it is something as small as the sun shining through the clouds, hang on to that. Keep going.

Yes it is tough when you feel overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, unmotivated, etc. Sometimes it helps me to takes things one day at a time, make a list of things to do, break a big job into smaller parts.

Exercise, eat right, sleep enough.
