When you are feeling sorry for yourself, you must be going through a tough time. However, you cannot let it go like that because you will not get anything from it. Rather it is detrimental for your health. There may be different external things that have developed this condition, but now that you understand it is not good for you, it is best that you work on it and stop feeling sorry for yourself anymore.
These easy steps will help you do that
Stop pitying yourself
First things you need to do is stop pitying yourself. There may be something that is very bad, but remember that you are not alone who is going through the same phase. There are many others in this world. Some of them are going to overcome it and some cannot.
Amongst whom do you want to see yourself?
You are not alone and always believe that something good is waiting for you, it’s just that the right time is not there.
Have faith in yourself
There are hard times and then you may think that you are not worthy of anything! The question is whether it’s true? In the past there must have been such situation when you had faced bad time and overcome it too! Then, why not now? Believe your strength and focus on them. You can gradually come out of the phase and start believing yourself again.
What have you learned?
When do you start feeling sorry for yourself? In such situations when things are not good. Ask yourself that what have you learned from the situation that you have been? There must be some lesson that the situation have taught you and try to remember it for life. You will find it better and easier.
Forget what others have
When you are not having good time you look at others and feel that if they have it why not you? This makes you feel sorrier for yourself. Gradually you start envying others. Again, this is not good. It will not help you get into somewhere, because whatever others have is theirs, you cannot snatch it. Thus, you have to wait for your time. You will surely get what you deserve. Comparing what others have with what you have will only increase your agony. Thus, stop doing that.
What are things you are grateful for?
Take a piece of paper and write down what are the things for which you are grateful. There must be something or other that you have and others do not have. Even if you do not have anything extra at this moment, just think that you are in sound mind to read this and write down something, you are healthy. That is enough to be grateful for. Once you find out things that are good for you, things will turn out better. You will feel good and be sure that life is not as bad as it seems. Just wait for the right time and you won’t feel sorry for yourself.
