SEVENTEEN. (57 Ways to Beat Loneliness & Depression)
Focus on good things
The thing about life is that it’s so easy to think about all the bad things that have happened to us in the last decade…even though there are so many more good things to think about. We remember the regrets, we remember the mistakes, but we often forget the good decisions, and the proud moments.
Today when you find yourself wanting to think about all the negative things that happened to you, choose to focus on the good things instead. Think about the amazing decisions you made. Think about the times when you got exactly what you wanted and you were so happy, and you felt so close to God. Think of the times when you did the right thing. Think of the times when your life looked exactly as you envisioned it. Focus on those good things, and you will realize that life is not as bad as it seems.
Remember life is meant to be loved, not despised.
What good things are you thinking about?
