Staying There Is HardIt is difficult for me to focus on the positives in life because I am constantly faced with difficult circumstances and ridiculous situations. I do not how I manage to stay positive, but I do. It isn't always easy to stay positive, especially since I struggle with depression. I can easily be positive, but staying there is completely different story. I feel grateful to all my friends and family for keeping things in perspective. I wouldn't have the courage to live the life I'm living if it wasn't for the support they offer me. They have blessed me with that.
There are many good things happening in my life right now. I still have some struggles, but these struggle pale in comparison to all the amazing things happening. The positives make the negatives worth dealing with. I know that I need those positives to brighten my day and they do so much that the negatives seem like nothing. The positives motivate me, inspire me and without them I wouldn't be able to tackle my problems so to speak. I know there will be times when my pessimism and cynicism will throttle, but it's all good - as long as I return to my positives then no amount of throttling will crush my spirit.
