I agree with garvan. You have to try to remain positive and stay strong. You can get through this, you can go. How do you go on? You live with what life never takes away, Hope. You have to hope that your everything can come back, you have to hope you can go on without your world, you have to hope that things will look up. Good luck, best wishes<br />
You go on, day by day. I do understand, although mine was for different reasons. I lost two wives - one was the "love of my life" & the other was my best friend of 30 years. I lost my father, my dog & was unemployed for 2 years. All of this took place in 3 1/2 years.<br />
I have come to understand that I am always where I am supposed to be, whether I like it or not. That everything I have or experience is either a gift or a lesson. If you have the gift, treasure it. If you have the lesson, learn what you need to learn & move on. <br />
A quote I heard recently:<br />
Everything will be alright in the end.<br />
If it isn't alright; it isn't the end.
We never know how strong we are till it is the only option! I understand how you feel, believe me it does get better. I didn't think I would make it either, but I did and I'm strong and better for it. You will be okay<br />
even though it feels like nothing will ever be okay again, It really will. Try to do things to take your mind off<br />
of it. Write, go walking and believe everything happens for a reason even if you can't see it now. I now see<br />
mine as a blessing in disguise. You may feel the same way one day.
If you're still alive then not everything has been taken away. Look for something to be thankful for...the lessons, the experiences.. Those little things may be worth something that you may have just long ignored. Start anew and you'll eventually realize that something may have been taken away, but definitely not everything.
Live one day...heck sometimes one minute more. I know well how hard this is but I swear it can be done.<br />
Surround yourself with happy and positive people whenever possible, when if it is the happy waitress at the coffee shop.<br />
Try to get some exercise. They say that a brisk walk for 1/2 hour or more per day is as good for mild depression as low doses of medication! I'll take the walk and skip the cost and side effects thank you!<br />
Try to do things that you enjoy. Write, paint, draw, make jewelry, go hiking, go get a mani/pedi, check into a hotel that has a heated pool and go for a swim on a snowy day... anything to make yourself smile again.<br />
Try to laugh. Watch old movies, read the "I Love Jokes And Riddles" section of EP, read the comics. Laughter really is good medicne.<br />
Best wishes and big hugs form someone who understands!
You have to look at what you still have at this point, and hold on to last bits of strength.
You take it back.
find something, make it your new everything. good luck.
Well my Girl just remember that everything in life is temporary,hang on to the good memories<br />
that is something NOBODY can take away from you ( I send you kisses to speed your recovery)<br />
It is very difficult I can imagine however you have to try to remain positive and strong and work at getting your mindset back in order so you can face life and all it throws in your direction.<br />
I wish you my very best,garvan.
