13 Pieces Of Advice For When You Feel Like You Are At Your Lowest

6. You will not see results right away.

13 Pieces Of Advice For When You Feel Like You Are At Your Lowest
John Gibbons

Sometimes, it's so hard to keep a positive attitude in life when it just keeps piling seemingly stressful situations on you.

No matter how hard life gets, there is a way to make it easier. Turn to these pieces of advice when you need some motivation to get through the hardships.

1. There is only one person you can change, and that's you.

You cannot control anyone else, you can only control the way you react to what other people say or do.

2. Find that person (or people) who can help hold you accountable.

They will help you reach your goals, stay on track, and keep up with good habits.

3. Do some soul searching to find out what you want to change.

Once you figure out where you are struggling, it will be easier to find where you need to start to solve your problems.

4. Sometimes you will have to distance yourself from friends who may not be good influences on you.

It’s normal to want to fix relationships that you have and just stick with them, no matter who that relationship is with. The hard part is knowing when to walk away and that at the end of the day you’ll be okay without them.

5. If you are religious, pray.

Many people who are religious find this to be very calming and it brings a lot of peace to them.

6. You will not see results right away.

But don't get discouraged. Change doesn't come in a split second and will take time, but the feeling that comes to you when you become the person you want to be will be so worth it.

7. Don’t dwell on the bad.

What are you going to do to continue on and move forward?

8. How can you put the world in order if you don’t keep your room in order?

This is a good reminder to stay organized because it will help you gain focus for everything else.

9. When there is something beneficial for you, make sure you put it in practice right away.

Keep practicing good habits so they become just that, habits.

10. You will make the best decision you can and until then just trust your intuition.

Give it time and use your best judgment until you are able to make the best decision.

11. All pain and joy come from within.

No outside forces can cause you sadness, you cause sadness to yourself. Nothing in this world causes joy, you cause it yourself. You can’t affect what you take in and you can’t control the world around you, but what you can do is control your emotions, forget expectations, and allow the world to do what it does. So, instead of focusing on sadness and allowing pain to fill you, focus on joy and allow happiness to fill you.

12. Nothing can make you stressed. You stress yourself.

This is sort of similar to #11. Choose not to be stressed and understand the uselessness of it. Do what needs to be done, but do it with confidence and not cluttered mind.

13. Sometimes even the giant needs help from the mouse.

Don’t be afraid to ask others for help. In my own experiences, I feel like I am bothering people by asking them for help. In reality, there are people who are so willing to listen to you and help you and feel joy in making you feel better.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist.
