WHEN THE OTHER SHOE DROPS IN OUR LIVES, IT’S EASY TO THINK WE ARE ALONE.
Truth is, everyone goes through inevitable hard times in their lives. Eckhart Tolle writes in his bestseller A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose “The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.” Most of us can probably resonate with that statement even though it sometimes doesn’t feel like it.
Here are 6 things you can remind yourself to get back on track and get back to life after a period of feeling depressed.
JUST BECAUSE I FELL DOESN’T MEAN I CAN’T GET BACK UP
It’s not necessary to always have an all or nothing attitude. Life is fluid, and it changes so much despite our wishes. It doesn’t matter if you had a bad diet day, smoked a cigarette after you swore you quit, or did something to hurt another. A slip up doesn’t define you. You can get back up, just keep going, and not stay in the problem. Look at your setbacks as learning experiences, and you will be closer to living your authentic truth.
