Change isn't easy but it's a great thing

Hi guys. I am in a really bad place right now and would appreciate it if you guys could keep me in your thoughts and prayers. There is nothing life threatening or anything like that. I'm just in a not so good place and just can't get out of it.

Hugs & happy thoughts, Mandy!! bighug

Obviously, we don't know the nature of the problem, but if it's a problem that takes more than a boost from friends get out of, please don't be afraid to reach out for appropriate professional help as well. There are lots of ways to be in a bad place--physical, emotional, environmental, vocational, financial, mental--there are people out there who can offer real solutions for all of life's issues!

If it's something where you need to make a change to get away from a situation but that change is hard to make, take a deep breath and leap forward! You can do it!! Change is big. Change is scary. But change happens and sometimes the changes that are the scariest work out the best in the end!

Keep your chin up, Mandy! Whatever you're going through, there's a whole board full of people here that believe that you can beat it! muchlove

Mandy I have had some dark days too....
I found a couple quotes that I've always read to myself when
I needed encouragement....I hope you don't mind if I share one
of them with you~ I have this one taped inside my police locker
so I can see it every day before I start work

Today is not the day you quit.
Nor is it the day you cry.

Today you know that you have all the passion and wisdom
to find that quiet center of solace, serenity, and strength
necessary to create and sustain an authentic life.

Hi Mandy - positive thoughts and virtual hugs are coming your way bighug

I remembered a quote from Maya Angelou that I found a while ago and pinned so I wouldn't lose it when I needed it most - maybe it will help you too:

"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."

- Excerpted from Letter to My Daughter, a book of essays (2009)

I can relate. I'm going through some tough times myself in the real world so to speak. I've been seeking therapy to combat that though. But anyway, every day isn't going to be like this all the time. It's impossible. I could say, "Life's tough, get a helmet" from Boy Meets World but that may not suffice.

So, here's a quote I looked up to comfort myself from Bernice Johnson Reagon that I'm willing to share:

"Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are."
