What is the biggest hardship in your life you’ve had to overcome/currently in?
When you think you have it bad, there’s always someone who has it worse. Also, how did you over come this.
Interested to hear your answers:)
When I was a lad, my first sincere and genuine love of my life basically took my heart in her hand and tore it to pieces in a very malicious way (in a nutshell). I felt an all time low physically and mentally for quite some time. Overtime (time reallllllly slowed down), I processed it and reflected on both of our behaviors during the experience. It basically ended with her apologizing and trying to get me back, and me telling her to politely f*** off.
This definitely isn’t a terrible low compared to other people, but it was my lowest moment. It was also my finest hour. I suffered a lot, and learned a lot about myself and life. I just took it day by day, reflected, and got stronger.
Learning to be happy is my biggest, sincere struggle. I’ve struggled for a really long time to find a reason to be happy, it seemed like with every good thing that happened another one that was 10 times worse came around. Eventually, I realized this is what life is *(especially as a teenager), and without the pain, there would be no pleasure. I now try to put less emphasis on the negative and look more towards the little positive things, and it has helped a lot.
Coming to grips with depression is probably one of the hardest things in my life, but I am slowly learning to control it and get past it.
