Do you see the glass half full or empty? I see them both some days half empty other days half full. When I think negative thoughts it is a nose dive into depression or staying there. Even if I have negative thoughts I try to come up with something positive about the thought or situation.
It is becoming harder to get out of my depressed mood, but I still look for the positives, like it was 53 for the high today and I walked to work without a jacket on. I keep trying to change my overall mood to normal for me. It takes a lot of time and effort. I don’t feel like doing anything, but I know what will happen if I do nothing. Even if I got up and took a shower that is a positive step for the day.
So even when your mind goes to the negative remember everything has a positive side too.
