Things to Remember When You Are Feeling Low

Just as no one is always happy, no one will be sad forever. We all go through times in life where we feel as though we can’t win, bad things keep happening, and it feels as though the world is against us. If this is the case for you, there are just a few things to remember to help you turn your life around.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN YOU’RE DOWN

Sadness is apart of life, but also something that we can learn from. Read on for 15 things to remember whenever you start to feel low.

THIS WILL PASS

There is nothing that is quite as overwhelming as the feeling that good things will never happen again in your life. In these situations, it seems like you’re forever stuck living the worst days of your life.

While these types of dark days do come, they aren’t destined to stay this way. Though you may be feeling one way right now, remember that everything will come to an end.

YOU ARE IN CONTROL

It’s hard to feel good about yourself when so many things in life feel like they’re out of your control.

Whether you’ve lost a job or had a medical emergency, handling life’s uncertainties can make anyone feel hopeless. Thankfully, there’s always a reason to have hope.

Whatever is making you feel as though life is out of control is only here for the moment. You are the one behind the reigns of your life and you have the ability to get yourself out of any situation you may be in.

While it may take a fair amount of creativity and outside help, regaining control of your life will completely transform your confidence.

TOMORROW IS COMING

When sadness hits, it can seem like you’re stuck with the same low feelings day in and day out. While everything may not change overnight, it’s important to realize that there are better days on the horizon.

Know one truly knows what tomorrow will bring. Miracles happen on a daily basis that will bring the hope back into your life. While it may take some time and dedication to build the life of your dreams, knowing that tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life can be a game-changer.

EXPRESS YOUR GRATITUDE

It’s hard to want to be grateful if you’re not feeling in good spirits, but gratitude is an essential part of feeling better about yourself.

The power of “thank you” goes beyond responding to someone holding the door for you. By exercising gratitude and saying “thank you” for all life’s blessings, you’ll sense that your perspective on life is changing.

Everything in life is a blessing. From experiencing good health, and having family and friends, to having food to eat and a bed to sleep in at night, these little details have a bigger impact once you are grateful for them.

As you examine all of your blessings, you’ll feel a newfound sense of positivity in life. Even if you’re going through a rough patch right now, your gratitude will help you see the way out.

YOU’LL BECOME STRONGER

Life’s lessons and tests may be uncomfortable to experience but they do have a very clear benefit: they teach you how to be strong.

Every situation that dared to break us in life really serves to develop our character and grow our resistance. While we may not enjoy these trials in the moment, they teach us everything we need to know about fighting for what we want and growing into the best versions of ourselves.

LOOK FOR THE GOOD

Looking for the good in a difficult situation may sound silly at first, but it is one of the best ways to shift from a negative mindset to a positive one.

Just as a rainbow typically follows a storm, your greatest success in life is sure to be on the other side of this difficulty.

When dealing with challenging experiences like a bad breakup or losing a job, it’s easy to focus on the bad feelings you have but once you look beyond that, you’ll see that there are good things on the horizon. Whether it’s falling in love with a better partner or finding the perfect career, your best life is just beyond your current situation.

EVERY PROBLEM CAN BE SOLVED

As we learned in math class, there is a solution to every problem.

Even if you can’t immediately see how to escape the issue you’re currently facing, there is always a solution somewhere. By focusing on things to remember like building your strengths, asking for help, and analyzing your problems, you’ll be able to come up with a way to solve your issue.

KNOW YOU’RE NEVER ALONE

It’s not hard to feel alone in life. It can feel as though you’re the only one in the world that cares about you, but that isn’t true. There are countless people who love you or are waiting to fall in love with the person you are.

If you don’t have one already, get connected to a community. By befriending like-minded people in your area, you’ll see how lovable you are

DON’T OBSESS ABOUT THE FUTURE

Thinking about the future makes some worry that they won’t achieve their deepest desires. This is especially true if life doesn’t seem to be going your way right now.

However, instead of worrying what tomorrow will bring, whether you’ll get your dream job next year, or if you’ll fall in love and get married in the next five years, learn to appreciate today. By seeing the beauty in the present moment, you’ll be able to enjoy what you have while saving some hope for the future.

LIFE IS A JOURNEY

We all have certain goals or milestones that we aim to complete. If we’re not careful, it can feel as though our lives center on reaching these goals.

While it’s important to have something to work towards, there’s more to living than crossing items off your to-do list.

Understand that life is an adventure that we’re all in the midst of. All the good and bad in life happens for a reason, whatever it may be. Though this journey has its highs and lows, learning to fall in love with the journey that is life will teach you how to overcome any sad or negative emotions.
