Setting goals in life is essential for motivating us to be the best we can be. It is harder to achieve when you have a mental disorder like schizo-affective.
So you start small and take your time achieving your goals. I remember almost nine years ago. I just got divorced and moved back in with my parents. Well my goal was to live on my own in an apartment. But first I made smaller goals for myself like becoming my own person again, or just getting up for the day. I suffered from depression during this time and loss my job because I was too tired at work. So it took me until 2013 to get out on my own again. I still live in the same place. Beginning of January 2013. I live on ssdi so I have income even without a job. However I got a job in October 2013 and still have the job.
I am proud of myself that I have maintained my goals and strive toward new goals.
You can achieve your goals no matter how big or small they may be. Start setting your own goals…
