´ Even if it's shitty, somewhere the situation is less so -
April 8, 2016

When we struggle with depression or helplessness it can be hard to come up with three good things or what we are grateful for. The reason is that our brain supplies us with information and memories which match our current feeling state: if you are happy it’s not that easy to come up with sad memories and vice versa. So if you are having a hard day, week or month and you want to move forward a way out of despair can be to look for the less shitty, the marginally better and collect and appreciate that. As we feel slightly better our efforts to come up with 3 good things or our gratitudes should become easier.
