BEATING

DEPRESSION

When we realize where we live emotionally has become a habit, we can unlearn that habit by building a new one.

“Most people aren’t happy. They sing songs like they are. Make up cute little stories. Post pics of the rare times when life wasn’t dreadful. Most people are stomaching this whole affair called life. Are these people complainers? Probably. Most are. But they’re also just blokes who’re too afraid to take a risk. So they live lives in a redundant cycle of complacent apathy. Then these people wallow around day after day in their unhappiness. The more you do that, the more you lose sight of the chances you could take to make things better.” -Sarah Noffke, Revived

How to beat depression once and for all summed up in a simple quote:

“Figure out what makes you laugh, and do more of it. Figure out what makes you cry, and do less of it.”

-Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love & a Dash of Sass
