As products of our society we constantly focus on what we don’t want resulting in us not knowing what we do want. Our dislikes get all of the attention which is probably why we keep attracting the undesirables. “I don’t know what I want to do; I don’t know where I want to go; I don’t know what I should be doing with my life.” Plenty of my friends are currently complaining of being stuck or depressed. When youfocus more on what you want, you’ll feel more accomplished.
You don’t have to believe in a higher power to understand the law of attraction. The universe is as plain as day and here to serve each and every one of us. Attraction starts with your mind; what you think is what you’ll receive. I know this from personal experience. Once you change your thoughts the next step is fixing your words. Instead of talking about things you don’t want/like, do the exact opposite.
A lot of my friends (and acquaintances)are stuck in their ways at such young ages. They’re willing to do things that are unfulfillingall the while complaining about being dissatisfied and depressed. Not only that but they surround themselves with others that do the same thing. Whenever I speak to them about it they talk about money woes& job security. These are people that have goals and aspire to be more than what they are. They lost their faith when they started focusing on the materialistic ways of the world.
Depression affects over 15 million American adults, ages 18 and older.
When you stop challenging yourself you start to feel stagnant. Having a job isn’t a challenge, it just shows you what you’re willing to put up with and for how long. Yes, you’re “building skills” but you’re not fulfilled. I feel that this is one of the main causes of depression (besides a chemical imbalance).
Of course money matters but it should never be your main focus. Money ain’t everything. Everyone wants to eat and have a roof over their heads. Everyone wants to live comfortably. But sometimes to accomplish your goals and reach your dreams you have to be willing to sacrifice your comfort. You have to be willing to give up everything for it. Just know that that discomfort is only temporary and the fulfillment will bring you so much more happiness. Once you start doing what you love the money will come. You just need patience (which is what I’m trying to find right now). You can’t always play it safe; you have to take risks.
Keep yourself open. Open to trying new things. Open to learning new ideas and new ways of thinking. Open to meeting new people and learning from them. Every situation won’t be peaches & cream but treat everything as an opportunity to gain knowledge (LEARN). A great way to limit your “bad experiences” is to listen to your intuition and remember, you don’t know everything so some things will be inevitable.
I don’t like to claim things I know I can change so I’m not going to say I was depressed but there were many times in my life when I felt stuck. I had no feelings, I was just going through the motions. There was no growth, no challenges, just work, eat, & sleep. I would lie in the tub with the lights off and listen to ‘How to Disappear Completely’ by Radiohead, full blast and on repeat, trying to do just that. Sometimes I’d cry but most times, there was just emptiness. I had to make myself realize that I could change that entire situation; that I had to rely on me to make myself happy. I just had to figure out where to start.
If you have even the slightest idea of what you want to do with your life, act on it. That one idea can lead to many things. It annoys me when people say, “…but there’s so much I want to do!” *insert annoyed emoji here* You have to start somewhere. And you can’t do everything at once. Believe it or not, those words can make you stumped.
Feeling like you have to choose one thing that will encompass all of the things you want to do. “One road can lead to many paths.” I don’t know who said it but I’m sure someone has.
Remember that you currently have the life you want. Where you are right now is due to the choices you’ve made. If it’s not what you want, you have the option to change it. You’re holding on to certain things/situations because it’s familiar. It’s no one else’s fault sweetie, that’s all you. Stop blaming the circumstances & what you don’t have because you’ve always had options.And stop worrying about money. The cheapest thing you can change right now is your mindset.
