I believe one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day. So, how about some positivity on everybodies most depressing day of the week? This is a series of true stories coming from random citizens of this beautiful world as a weekly dose of motivation for a happier day, a happier week and (hopefully) a happier life. Fifth one comes from a 19-year-old from Belgium. Her name is Marie. At the moment she’s studying photography here in Ghent, Belgium.
‘’So, my story begins when I was like 16 years old. And I had this first great love. It lasted for about a year. And we broke up in October. But in September of the same year I started doing my 4th year of high-school again. And I always hated high school. So having those two things happening at the same time was really depressing for me. I always thought to myself like ‘’My life sucks! I don’t want to get up, I don’t want to eat!’’. And I didn’t eat, nor did I sleep. I did nothing. I just laid in my bed and I cried all day. For like two or three months. And I didn’t go to school that much. I went to a therapist; I got medicines to get better. Yeah, it was a REALLY depressing time. But I got over it, because after a long long time I met some great friends and I just motivated myself by saying like ‘’It isn’t going to be your last love and things will be all right.’’ And now I’m in college and my life is so much better because I learned that one mistake (like not having good grades or having to do your year again) is not like the biggest thing in the world. It isn’t the worst scenario of your life. Life goes on. And now I just look at what happens next.
And for the Mondays… Well, I love breakfasts. So, I just make myself a really great breakfast. Make some toast with eggs or with bacon or just chocolate with corn flakes. Just make myself a great breakfast. And take a long hot shower. And put some lipstick on or just some eyeliner and wear the clothes I love the most. That makes my Monday a lot better. ‘’
