rt poses a significant question 'what might your life look like if you didn't feel so down? If say you woke up tomorrow and that feeling kind of went away? What might you be thinking, or doing' I know it's probably going to be a tough one to answer but still worth considering.
Now that you have an income, do you know what to do with it in order to raise your self? I personally believe money is nothing more than a resource; a resource with which to pay the bills with, eat and so on. So, how could it be used in the way of raising you above the life you are used to?
Let's say the first thing that pops into your head is 'travel'. If you know someone who loves to travel, someone you're close to, ask them if they wish to travel to somewhere you once dreamed of going to. Or maybe they may have a more sensational or simplistic destination in mind for a good start. This is not only an opportunity to travel, it's also an opportunity to discuss how you're feeling. You may find yourself saying to this person 'I've been feeling incredibly down and I feel I really need this but don't necessarily have to motivation to achieve it on my own'. Suddenly you have someone on your side who is conscious of you needing to be raised above depression. Some folk are fantastic at naturally raising people, through great directional words of advice as well as presenting challenges to rise to. The challenges become important when we're trying to raise our self. With each challenge we meet, they become like steps on the way up. With each challenge we meet, we meet a high that comes with such an achievement.
Myself, I lived in my depression for about 15 years, some time ago. I have now reached the stage where I say 'Bring it on!' for I know that no matter how difficult or how emotionally draining a challenge might be, when I rise to overcome it, I have evolved just that little bit more. I keep going because I want to know who I can be. I know this may sound simple but it has taken me many years to master.
Perhaps your first significant challenge at this point in time is to answer the question 'Who do I want to be?' If the answer is 'An adventurer (because staying still is a little soul destroying)', give some thought to the travel idea. Don't give up until you find someone who says 'Yes, let's do it!'
Let no one keep you down :)
