When chocolate is not enough

Chocolate helps, but it is not enough!

Eating chocolate or having a drink in the evening as a treat because we need to pamper ourselves is not the solution. It’s just a temporary pleasure, but tomorrow everything will be the same, over and over again. Can you live only for a few treats? It’s nice to be gluttonous sometimes, but it should be a joy, not a compensation; otherwise, it won’t be enough, and it won’t be satisfying.

When I was depressed because I was overwhelmed by work and family, I followed this advice: I made a list of what I like about my life and what I don’t like.

It sounds silly, but it works!

The most important thing is to avoid keeping it all in your head because it gets bigger and heavier there. You have to write it down on paper. Black on white, to ponder and verify the real weight of your thoughts.

Practical exercise.

Then take a sheet and draw two columns, one for good things and one for bad things; then put everything in order of priority.

Concentrate on the good things first and decide to spend more time every day to each of those things.

Now focus on the bad things, next to each one write whether or not you can change it. There are some things we can’t change, unfortunately, such as the loss of a loved one.

Now draw a thick line on all those things that you can’t change. Just a neat, straight line; we physically erase them from the paper, and the head.

Now, look at the negative things you can change, and start looking for ideas or courage or time to make changes.

I identified my work as the element that caused me the most anguish and anxiety for several reasons. First of all, because it occupied me for at least 8/9 hours a day, every day, and this prevented me from spending quality time with my children and my family. The idea of watching my children grow up with other people while I was in the office filled me with frustration and generated enormous feelings of guilt. The work that I loved had become a tremendous burden and was no longer a satisfaction for me; it was just an obligation. I felt dissatisfied and unhappy. And above all, I was tired and unmotivated.

So I started asking myself these questions: Why are you unhappy? What do you want to achieve? What are the expectations that led you to disappointment? Do you feel guilty? Do you complain about something every day?

The life we have is one only, and you want to waste it complaining about it?

Finally, you have to ask yourself the most crucial question: Do you want to change? Do you want to change your daily routine?

Life slips away while we’re busy doing all the 100 things we have to do every day and while we’re trying to chase time. This thought has frozen me. I want to live happily and authentically.

So I found the courage to change job, not easy. Oh, I know! But I knew that doing it for me was vital.

I did my research and realized that Digital Marketing offers excellent opportunities to get a job, change the routine and improve life! It takes time and dedication, you have to learn all about it, but it’s possible! The important thing is not to do it alone but to rely on excellent mentors who follow you step by step.

I have done it, and today I am an optimistic and positive person. Now it’s your turn, don’t waste any more time lost in the usual negative thoughts and complaining. Have courage!
