If you feel depressed about the struggles in your life and feel there is no hope, this inspriational speech that J. K. Rowling gave to Harvard several years ago can’t help but lift you up. Failure can become the bedrock of your foundation to move forward. I believe anyone can rise above their struggles by seeking out resources to help: people, agencies, group therapy, church. What ever you need to do to make a change. Just make a change. Do something different than you are doing right now.
There are so many worthwhile reading resources about failing forward. I am including this link with an analogy of a toddler driving why we should never give up. Please read : 5 tips when you are failing
My own journey has both defeat and triumph, but looking back over my life I never gave up on myself or stopped trying. I may have felt defeated and tired for a short time, but I wanted more for myself. I have always believed in therapy and asking for help when feeling stuck. I continue to work hard to make a significant impact for myself and for the others I am privileged to work with in their journey of self discovery, recovery, and other struggle areas of mental health. You too can be stronger than you ever have been before by reaching out. If you feel hopeless or depressed, DON’T GIVE UP !!
