Wanting to figure myself out

Last time I felt this low and hopeless I came here and you all helped me so much. I let her keep the apartment we had together and moved in temporary with my mom and her husband. I noticed within a few days my stepdad was acting extremely strange and found out he was dealing with depression. Further more, I was going through my own depression and found solice in co workers who I thought I was becoming very close friends with. They did fire the head boss and brought in someone new, and I was told by a few managers that the promotion process had very little to do with skill and more about personal reasons but to hang in there because things are changing.

I provide all of this backstory because I spent the last year being there for friends and family and now I feel like I have no one to turn to. When I try to talk to my family about how deeply depressed I am, the conversation becomes about them, not me. How do you even start to find yourself? How do I get rid of this bitterness and sadness and find joy again?

To find joy again, I say you still will need what you always need: people. But unlike the people at work and your unavailable family members I suggest to aim at people who are and will be honest with you, trustworthy and available to attend to you. One way to figure if a person deserves your trust is to figure his or her possible motivations to be with you and pay attention to their behavior in regard to possible motivations.

If these are people at work that aim at the same promotion you aim at, then this is a competitive situation and their motivation is likely: to be promoted and so, be aware and cautious. Notice other people, dates; if a woman insists you take her to expensive places and asks you to buy her things, then her motivation is… just that.

Pay attention and carefully choose. It is indeed sorrowful to experience events which fracture our trust and faith in one another; in humanity. These gestures are certainly hard to absorb. However, find solace and satisfaction in knowing that you did not take part in reciprocating these chaotic acts. This conveys that you have a good heart and innately wish for the happiness and well being of everyone, and even to those whom cause you harm. Please recognize this beautiful trait within yourself.

My friend, self-peace and happiness are things that must constantly be worked on. However, they become easier to instinctively and earnestly exhibit by understanding certain truths. Sometimes, the vigorous pace of society can make us forget the meaningful and make us abandon our humanity. During such times, tap into your once more innately well-wishing heart and reground yourself. Continuously reinforce your life-affirming beliefs that this existence is worth living so that all difficult events can be dealt with more efficiently.

This should also assist in reclaiming your happiness. Now knowing that we all suffer, obtain the yearning to want all beings to be free of it so we may all share a blissful existence. Maintaining a sincere desire to want good for all will produce all the necessary positive mental and physical actions to circumstantiate your happiness. You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
