Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

    Not sure if this counts but mine would probably be what my coach tells me which is:

    Never let success get to your head. Never let failure get to your heart.
    Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

      Esme17 I love that!! It's great that your coach is telling you to never get discouraged, reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "failure is not falling down, failure is refusing to get back up"

        ďYou know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.Ē

          Jellyelephant that's amazing! That's so true, fear can stop us from doing amazing things! Actually your quote reminds me of the movie "We're the Millers," the dad in the movie tells the son to just count to three and then do what he normally would have been scared to do, and it actually works for him! Hahah you're quote really reminded me of that movie!!

            There is No elevator to success. You have to take the stairs. - this also is the same about life and recovery.

              I love Forest Gump!! So my film quote would be:
              "Life is like a box of chocolate"
              I never got what this actually meant, but I guess it makes sense.


              If you take all the good stuff out, it becomes empty

                  Aidan wow! I've never thought about that quote that way! I love Forrest Gump too, I always thought "Life is like a box of chocolates" meant everybody's life is so different, you never know what life is going to throw at you next! But I love your interpretation more!! It's so true, if you take out all the things in your life that make you happy, it becomes empty. Thanks for sharing!!

                    I love reading your quotes guys!! Keep them coming!

                      Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles, failure and loss only act as motivation.
