I was so sure that once I would reach my happiness it would stay but it didn’t. I have learned this over and over and I am going to remind myself and you about it as well: “Happiness is something you constantly work on. Emotions are temporary. Everything passes sooner or later.” I think that you should never accept being depressed for the rest of your life. I refuse to accept that I would be depressed for the rest of my life. If you do that, then you WILL be depressed. It is not about that. It is about accepting that depression might come into your life again even when you are happy. You will have bad days, sad days, horrible days, awful, sad, depressed days. But that also means that you will have good days and awesome days, a huge amount of “best days of your life”.
I was quite unhappy up until the beginning of January, anxious and I was constantly drowning. However, I did catch myself. I feel a lot better now. I didn’t learn much because of it and my grades are going to be interesting BUT I am happier. A lot happier. And that is what matters to me. My mental health is good now and that is so fulfilling. My final good advise is this quote here, because:
It is actually a book. I have it and I read it and I out it right in front of me to remind me that I can make whatever I want with the life I have. I advise you to read it.
And the way I got out of it was simply not accepting the state I was in and taking every step to change things. I just started doing all the things that make me happy. Most of it was surrounding myself with the people I love and doing crazy, fun things. (:
