This is not necessarily one of my average types of articles. Heck, it’s not even an average title for me.
What do you do when life doesn’t seem to be going the way you dreamed it would go from when you were younger? What if you tried and tried and tried and it seemed like the only thing you were doing was making a complete and total fool of yourself? What do you do when it just feels like you’ve done everything you could right, only for people to look at you as though you failed them but really they failed you!?
This whole week…NO….the past few months have been frustrating and in some ways just disappointing. Some VERY good things happened during those times too, but, sometimes those bad times hit really hard especially if it hits you in your core.
You try to do something about it. You really do! You don’t want to sit and wallow in self-pity, but, when you suffer with depression and it feels like you have to work twice as hard as the average person to stay positive, you feel like doing the opposite of “something” about tit.
If anything, and if you’re like me, you often feel like doing exactly what the boy is doing in the picture….gorging yourself with ice cream until you feel better.
Over the next couple of days, I want to help people who are feeling like failures, losers and wimps. I want people to know that even though you may feel like this…like the world is coming to an end for you sooner than you think…like in some ways that your life doesn’t matter…I want to encourage you that it does.
My hope is that as things unfold here, that overtime, I can help someone whose dealing with deep, personal struggles of failure, depression and other issues.
After all, you and I both know that while it is nice and temporary to gorge oneself with several buckets of ice cream, it won’t solve the underline problem.
Let’s walk this journey together. You’re not alone!
Look for me sharing more about my own personal struggles but also as I share what has helped me go forward in spite of these trying times.
