"We can't think our way out of a sh*tty feeling. We have to do something about it, and flicking our thumb through social media is probably the exact opposite of what we should be doing. We have to change the channel, change the environment, change the people, just change anything that's within our immediate power. The response of 'easier said than done' never gets old, but we get to the point of sink or swim, and since many folks self-diagnose themselves with depression, maybe it's time they also self-treat that same condition with real action. Figure out the triggers, recognize what's good for your mind, body, and soul and do that. Otherwise we're trapping ourselves in a self-loathing cycle wondering why everyone else seems happier than us; they're not. The folks that are genuinely happier are putting in the work, because they realize that little comes from feeling sorry for ourselves, and we ALWAYS have control over our effort, so let's start there. There isn't a secret code to being happy, it's simply recognizing and appreciating the blessings we all have in our lives. Sometimes it's difficult to recognize those blessings, but no one promised us an easy life. Put in the work."
