Really don't know what I need to do - August 20th 2010, 12:53 AM

So basically I just really don't know what I need to do to be 'okay'. I've tried a therapist and they gave me insight. I have a very negative outlook on life and I'm very impatient. I feel like I'm going nowhere but I the views on life I DO have are like.. inprinted into my brain. Idk I just feel really fucked mentally and don't know what to do anymore.

My experiences are mine. They may be good, they may be bad but they make who I am.

The first step of getting past this is asking yourself, why are you like this? Past trama, grieving, broken heart, illness, depression? It could be as simple as wanting to be positive but being angry at finding no positivity.
Take that reason and think, is it something to be this upset about? Do you ever see goodness happen in the world? The world is a beautiful and disgusting place. You're intent on thinking it's just disgusting. But open your eyes; observe the little things before you jump to conclusions. When I used to be depressed, it came down to me sitting alone outside on my back. The season was autumn and all I saw was falling leaves. One way to look at it was that the trees were dying and coldness and ice were on it's way. The other way was that the trees were shedding the memories of the past year and starting fresh with a new life and a new look.
That little observation gave me hope and little by little, I saw the brighter side. If you want to see how beautiful the world can really be, check out givesmehope.com. I really hope you stay on the site for hours and finding hope in each story like I did.
You're an amazing person, no matter what. The world is amazing, no matter what. Look to the stars and see the light, not the darkness that surrounds them.

Waiting for autumn...
