I can hardly stay positive. i am in such a state of fear about my living situation right now.. i call different call in talk shows on blog talk to talk to someone when i am in a terrible state. I am living rather rural cause no one wants to rent to me.. plus i have 2 cats and am on section 8 housing. I cannot find a place to rent because some black marks on my rental history so staying positive is really an incredible challenge right now.

I love to listen to Gospel music to pick me up. I try to help someone else.

I find that a good dose of daily Bible reading helps.  Though it may not take away problems, it truly helps us to cope with whatever situation we may be dealing with. 

Another thing that helps me is to spend quality and quantity time with my beloved pets.  They always bring me so much joy.

Try to think positive  or doing something distracted from it, if not work sometimes take antidepressant drug may help

Like other have said, trying to stay positive helps. I like to do things that will help take my mind off whatever I am dealing or struggling with. I know that may only help for a little while, but it does help. I think about the good things that are in my life and say my prayers every night.

Try not to dwell on the problems and look forward to something.  Make a goal for your self each day and keep your self busy and maybe you will start having positive thoughts especially when you complete you goals for the day.  Don't make the goals so high that you know you won't be able to complete make it simple and take your time.

Focus on tomorrow and forget about yesterday and today. Your dreams and aspirations are within reach! Don't ever give up! The only person who you cheat is yourself.

Every day I remind myself how I'm still here for a reason. A good reason! And that is what keeps me going.
