Positive Mental Attitude
PMA doesn’t mean being 100 percent happy every day.
By no means is it faking a smile and lying to yourself about your feelings.
It’s about fighting.
It’s about never giving up.
I had low self-esteem for years.
I truly believed I was worthless.
I amounted to nothing.
Nothing I did mattered.
What was the point of everything?
What was the point of anything?
What was the point of living?
But something changed.
After many days of reflection and reading,
I realized I did matter.
I could make a difference.
I could change things for the better.
Of course, I wasn’t immediately transformed.
I still had those discouraging thoughts,
But I had them less frequently.
Some days I wanted to give up.
I didn’t see the point in moving on,
But instead of caving into those thoughts,
I fought them.
I still get incredibly sad and lonely from time to time.
And it’s ok to have bad days,
But the point is to never give up.
Never stop fighting.
My cure to bad days is hanging out with people,
Especially when I just want to stay inside.
People actually care for you and want to be with you.
Never think otherwise.
You have a greater impact than you could ever imagine.
Don’t give up,
And keep that positive mental attitude.
