To all of those with the New Year blue's:
Why are you depressed?
Maybe you've broken up with someone you cared?
Or were you cheated on by someone who meant the world to you?
Is it because you think you'll never move up the ladder?
Or maybe you're just not too sure of the future?
If it's one of the first two,
I know it's very hard to move on,
with so much trying to drag you back into that dark pit of despair,
but ask yourself,
Is all this agony and sadness even worth your time?
Was she/he even worth your time?
Imagine what she/he's doing while your hurting yourself,
most likely having the time of their life,
your pain is the last thing on their mind,
So don't waste a tear,
Over someone who only feeds you with lies and false feelings,
save your pain for someone who actually cares for you,
if you look hard enough,
you might find them,
but don't try too hard,
because you might fall harder.
If its one of the last 2,
Life is anything but certain,
but you can always guide it,
There have been many people in your shoes,
Many successful people have had the environment stacked against them,
but they didn't care,
they put much effort to not make failure a destiny,
they have went through many mental and physical challenges,
but in the end,
they're at the top of the world,
because they didn't let the world bring them down,
and that's what you need to do,
fight the force that drives you down,
because the force will only lead you to more despair and entropy.
Maybe it might be another reason,
because life is full of many challenges,
but remember one thing,
life is 20% what happens to you,
and 80% on how you react,
Apparent destiny and apparent failure may seem hard to fight,
but again life is anything but certain,
and it's only you who allow things to happen to you,
nothing is ever forced onto you if you look at it correctly,
You merely trick yourself into believing you have to take it,
So good luck my friend,
and don't let anything or yourself drag you down.
