How Life Treats You All Depends On How You Approach It


I recently came across this writing and it just goes to show how you enjoy your life all has to do with how you approach it. Read the passage below to the end.

Today was the absolute worst day ever

And don't try to convince me that

There is something good in every day

Because when we take a closer look

The world is a pretty evil place

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don't last

And it's not true that

It's all in the mind and heart


True happiness can be obtained

Only if one's surrounding are good

It's not true that good exists

I'm sure you can agree that

The reality


My attitude

It's all beyond my control

And you'll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day

Now read the passage from the bottom to the top

  1. The writer of this artiicle, not you Basil, makes me nervous for those who read this and are having a problem with depression. What do you think?,

      I’m not sure how to answer that as I have never had to deal with depression and am not able to wrap my head around it ( no pun intended), so I don’t know how a person suffering from depression would read it. It is very easy for me to pull myself out of a funk just by telling myself to do so and changing the way I am thinking, which I understand is not a possibility for people with depression as it is chemical thing. To me it’s an easy thing to do, so I would hope that looking at something from a different angle may help people to see the day as brighter.
