Often in my life, I have found myself trying so hard to find a positive, to find something to look forward to, but it is until now that I have really understood what it means to look at the positive. What I discovered was that I had ignored the biggest positive in my life; my family. For years I tried finding positives in those who I rarely shared and intimate relationship with and that I figure is the reason I could never truly find that positive. But now, I realize how important my family is. I originally thought that they did not support my interests in the arts, but now I see that they only wanted to provide me with a life that would not be stressful and difficult. They wanted me to become comfortable with my life, but at the same time have a good reputation.
My word of advice to anyone struggling just with life in general and any problems similar to mine, is to look for peace within. It is the most fundamental step towards having a happy and content life. I know that just by changing my attitude, many doors have opened up for me and I am no longer dealing with periods of depression. I deal with situations in my life as they come and put my best foot forward.
Be positive and try not to make success and failure personal, rather go through life with confidence in yourself and emotional stability. Don't ever let your emotions get the better of you, because that is when you loose control. Good experiences and not so good experiences come and go and without one, the other does not exist. So go through knowing that but not dwelling on it.
