When Life Brings You Down

When life brings you down, all you have to do it put on a smile.

There are times in everyone's life that they feel as if they have hit rock bottom. The person becomes depressed, suicidal, distant, or just not happy at all. That is the most important time in ones life. The reason it is? The reason it's the most important time is because that is when the person starts to really reflect on their past and even their futre.

At the lowest point in your life you start to think about the things you have done that have put you where you are at this moment. You think about the bad things you have done, like let's say drugs, drinking, hanging around with the wrong people, ditching class, disobeying ones parents, etc. etc. But as you are reflecting on these bad things, you start to think about the things that you can change to bring yourself out of the depression. You start to finally realize that you havent been the best person you can be, and now is the time to work towards becoming who you truely want to be.

It takes time to come to grips with yourself about who you have been. But once you have, you can start to forgive yourself for the mistake and hurt you have made and caused. Once you have forgiven yourself, you can forget. Once you have forgotten, it's time to work on getting better. Figuring out what you have to do to change from the person you were before, to the person you want to become is probably the hardest part. This change will not happen overnight. It will take many many years to change into a better person. But if you surround yourself with people that love you and people that you can go to when you want to change back to old ways, the process wil be easier for everyone.

Who you are, and who you want to be can be very different. Leaving who you are and becoming who you want to be is a difficult process. But when you have hit rock bottom, it is the only thing that will save you and bring you back to a life where you are happy and free.

So when life brings you down, throw on a smile, and become who you want to be.
