Everyone experiences moments of sadness and despair at some point in their lives. These can be very challenging times when it feels like there is no hope or purpose. It can be especially challenging when we feel broken and unsure of how to move forward.
It's important to recognize that we are all fortunate in many ways. For example, if you have access to electricity and a phone to read this article, it's likely that you have a level of comfort and convenience that many people in the world do not. This could be anything from the roof over your head to the people in your life who support and care for you. No matter how difficult things may seem, there are likely others who would be grateful to have the things that you have or for the opportunity to be where you are.
It's easy to get caught up in our own problems and struggles, but it's important to remember that no one's life is perfect. We all have our own challenges and hardships to deal with.
The single most effective way to do when you're feeling sad or down is to focus on the things that you should be grateful for. So, when you're feeling down, try to take a step back and say "thank you" for all those things.
