Summary: In Life there have been times where I didn’t feel like I was enough. In this blog I wanted to speak on how I got out of those rutts and how if you are feeling like that, you can get out of it just like I did.

I used to have horrible depression and anxiety. There were even times that I wondered what the world would look like without me in it. I was hanging out with the wrong crowd. Surrounded by people who really didn’t care about me. I didn’t know how to make that feeling go away. I was lost for a really long time. One day everything changed. It was like a calling from God that I needed to do more with my life and if I didn’t change my lifestyle then I was going to be dead before highschool graduation. From that day on I decided to change my life. That summer between middle school and highschool I stopped associating with those people. I stopped the bad habits that I had been doing. There were a lot of obstacles through that journey of change. I was lonely, I only felt like I had myself. The first day of High School was terrifying. I went into my sophomore year with no friends. I had burned a lot of bridges and had guilt about the way that I had treated my family. I worked through those emotions over time but it wasn’t easy. In every class I had for some reason I was seated next to the people that I used to hang out with. I had to go up to every teacher to explain the situation and ask to be moved. As time went on things got easier and easier. I found a really great group of friends. I started having better relationships with my family. I didn’t feel as guilty. I started to right my wrongs. There is a reason I started with this story and that is because at 13, 14, 15. I had no purpose in life. I didn’t know what I wanted, I didn’t know that life could and would get better, I had no idea that I would have purpose only a few years later. When you are feeling down and don’t feel like you are worth anything. You are. You are worth something amazing to this world. You have a divine calling and unique capabilities that other people can’t do. If you are feeling lost the first step to finding more purpose in life is to put you first. So what does it mean to “Put you first” ? It means that you take the time to come to understand yourself and the things that bring you joy in life. I want you to think of the last time that something brought you joy. Not happiness but pure joy. What was that? Hold on to that emotion. When you’re sad or having a down day, think of that feeling. Trying different activities that make you happy is a great way to find purpose in life. If you like to paint, paint. If you like to go outside, go outside. If you like to read, read. There are so many possibilities of things that you can do to find your purpose again. I promise you will.
