Conundrum

Well my depression has kicked in again, which means I'll be here constantly giving love and encouragement to strangers I would love to receive myself but can't because I can't lower my guard enough to believe people are capable of good intentions. Luckily, I find it easier to give than to receive. And I don't think there's a better high than raising someone else up. Call me selfish lol.

As care takers, it's easy for us to help others. Unfortunately we've been let down so many times by others that we turn down others who are trying to help us. We have to be willing to allow others to help us out. Start off by surrounding yourself with people that look after you with your best interests at mind. People that keep you accountable, that encourage you to make positive changes and moves, and help you stay positive specially when times get hard. By keeping only positive people in my life, having a small but extremely supportive group of friends, it's helped me tremendously! Life's been tough with a lot of set backs and restarts, but if it wasn't for my willingness to open up accept the help, I'd most likely would be homeless or dead by now.

Some people are more giving...there also those that are more taking. Then there are those that like to have a more give and take. Everyone is different...

If you really look at it then all of us are selfish that way. I don't think anyone would choose to help others if there was no sense of personal gratification inside. I help others because I have needed help in the past and not gotten it so me helping others is my weird way of helping that version of me in the past. But that aside depression is hard. I am very lucky that I found some pills that mostly work for me and the gap is filled by support from my friends. Just do what you need to help yourself as long as you aren't impinging on others I don't really see an issue.

Aw man…don’t forget to show yourself some love too! Take time for yourself but also don’t stay alone: reach out to loved ones and don’t be afraid to accept the help you need!
