How often do we allow ourselves to wallow in the idea that we are worthless? If you are feeling stressed and depressed about your current situation, know that you have the power to change it. You may not be able to change your situation immediately, but you can change your attitude towards your situation. Being depressed by the idea that you are nothing is something you can overcome. You can fight it.
Ways to overcome feelings of worthlessness
When you feel sad for no reason, you know in your heart that something has caused it. Was it your friend’s social media piece showing his latest fancy trip? Did he hear the news that his employee was promoted? Did he see your neighbor driving his new car? There’s always something that can cause this feeling of futility, and that’s mainly because we can’t help but compare ourselves to others. We see what they have and what we don’t have.
Stop making comparisons
Comparing yourself to others is not always a mistake. Sometimes it inspires us to do more with our lives. It encourages us to try harder and set new goals. But when you compare yourself to your neighbors, friends, or siblings, it can hurt. If you regularly compare yourself with others to see what they have and feel sorry for yourself because you have less, it is better to break this habit.
You can benefit from detoxification through social media. You can either stop everything at once or start limiting the time you spend moving through the flow of information. There are many more productive things you can do with the time you spend on social media. Instead of scrolling through information, spend your time learning something valuable. Why not try reading self-help books? This will help you discover different strategies that will help you develop as a person.
Beginning of the habit of gratitude
If you look closely, you’ll see that your life isn’t so bad. Some of the bad things in our lives are reinforced by the fact that we put them ahead of the good things. We choose to focus on the negative aspects rather than the positive ones. Gratitude doesn’t mean you can’t dream of having more or being more. It is about appreciating what you have and hoping that along the way you will get what you want.
Whenever you are jealous of others, stop being grateful. Instead of thinking, “I’m so jealous that they have such a great life,” you can say, “I’m glad they have a great life, and I’m going to make sure mine is just as great. Don’t get caught up in envy and negativity. Before your mind has a chance to compare, you must immediately turn that thought into something encouraging. Be inspired by the successes of others and work harder to achieve your own version of success.
