Lost My Will To Live

Lost My Will To Live

How do you find the spark when you lost the will to live after being an optimist for most of your life even after suffering 1 form of loss after another?

I was asked by one of my therapists to keep a journal specifically to jot down when I noticed myself smiling. If I had a positive feeling, even for a moment I make a note of it. Day, time and what it was that made me smile... It helped a lot.

Be gentle with yourself. The optimism will come back. It make take an unexpected form, but it will come back.

That is the disease of depression talking. It isn’t you. Don’t believe those thoughts because you are valuable and not a burden.

That's a hard one! Good question and glad u have ur animals. Wondering if finding ur purpose in life? Or spend my time doing what's FUN for you?
I've dealt with loneliness and found a med that took it away but it wasn't from ppl dying in my life.
