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.
It will come back.
Jus t be living & kind to yourself!!
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.
