If you aren't satisfied with where your life is or where you're life is going then change it.
Success is not measured by how much money or things you have. It's measured based on weather or not you are happy with where you are in life. The only thing from stopping your from being successful is YOU.
You're the only person who truly has control over your own life, not your family, not the government, not your boss, but YOU. No one is really going to be able to rescue you if life gets you down. The truth is that it's entirely up to do to do something about it.
Life isn't always rainbows and sunshine, and it's not supposed to be. We were designed with emotions for a reason. Those emotions are there to tell us weather or not what we are doing in life will lead to success. It's like the engine light in our car. When it comes on it doesn't mean that our light it broken. It means that there is something wrong with the car and we need to fix it. Likewise when our mental engine light (our emotions) comes on it doesn't mean there is something wrong with our emotional make up. It simply means something in life isn't working and needs to be fixed.
If you run into a light poll with your car, you can't expect to hit your accelerator and expect your car to just go no matter how much gas you give it. You are stuck. You can't move forward. You could yell at your car for not moving, but blaming the car does you no good. You might have swerved to miss a dog, you may have been distracted, or the poll may have appeared from space right in front of your car. No matter who's fault it is that you hit the poll, you are still the driver and blaming those around you isn't going to get you less stuck.
Feeling bad about life doesn't always mean you have some sort of emotional problem and that your mentally damaged. Feeling down simply means your emotions are working! You're supposed to feel bad when life gets hard. You take those emotions and use them to tell yourself " Ok, life isn't what I want it to be right now, and if I don't want to keep experiencing these emotions I need to change how I'm living."
Many times when we feel down we think there is something wrong with us. We think "My brain is obviously depressed and broken." We take the info our emotions are giving us and act like it's a negative thing and not a normal part of life. Then we try and fix the problem with therapy and drugs. That's like thinking something is wrong with your car simply because it ran out of gas. Your car is supposed to run out of gas! Could you imagine having it towed to a repair shop simply because it was out of gas? The mechanic would probably think you were nuts.
I'm not saying that therapy and drugs are wrong, but it is just a quick fix to a life issue. Our emotions help keep us on the right track to success.
If your emotions are telling you that life isn't where you want it to be then do something about it. Don't wallow in your emotions. Change them. Make something happen. It's all up to you.
