Every moment you think about how dismal your situation you waste that precious energy. Self-pity doesn’t even feel good.
You can keep looking at the negative and telling yourself that life sucks or you can do something about it.
Spend ten minutes thinking about solutions. Find your shortcomings and know that every single one of them can be improved if you try just a little.
There are things you need to be doing, get to them! Do not procrastinate. It cannot wait until later, it won’t wait until tomorrow! Do it now, right now, right this second. Not in fifteen minutes, not after a depression nap, RIGHT NOW! The sooner you do something to HELP yourself the sooner your situation improves. Any progress you make is progress indeed.
