mood fluctuations and being more posative

lately I have found my emotions getting the better of me. some days are ok, but most are not.

I just feel really down a lot of the time. I'm not sure if it's because of any external influences ( Like not having a job and living in a bad environment ) or it is just a fluctuation in my mood.

some times i feel as if i should just suck it up and get on with life, because in reality, I have it pretty good. I have a roof over my head and I have food in the fridge. I might not have everything I WANT, but I have the tools to succeed in life and I need to take the opportunity with both hands.

is there anything you guys do to help with your mood fluctuations or do you just have to go through it? at the moment, I feel as if I am a real negative person to be around and no one wants to be around me. which in turns makes me even worse. could someone help me turn this around and be more happy on a general base level.

Your bad mood comes from several factors: your environment, your perception of yourself, and your perception of your own life. You know you can succeed with everything you have in front of you, but are you applying yourself the way you think you need? Ignore the distant future of happiness. Focus on now. Move forward now. Figure out the most immediate next step you should be taking right now. If you need a job, then either begin applying for jobs or begin working on skills for a job you'd want. You're in a bad environment? Tough, your perception of this determines your reality. Sometimes, you just have to endure difficult times to enjoy better times later.

You can't always just fix positive and "snap out of it." There is no reverting from negative to positive besides slow gradual change. If you develop a goal, you will feel better working toward that goal. Over time, as you stay consistent with yourself and continually work to improve your life, you will find yourself feeling happier and happier. This is slow and will not appear apparent at times. When you improve your lifestyle, you'll become more positive, as you become more positive, people will like you more. These build on top of each other. But it starts with the first step. It starts with the first step on your journey. You must take this step.

so what you are saying it's about what i can do now in the present that will set me up for the long term?

Exactly. You don't build a house by moving bedrooms around. You begin by laying a foundation and setting up a sturdy wood frame. You have the tools, all you need to do is start using them. Use them every day. Even when you don't feel like you made as much progress as the previous day, you stay lubricated.

Just know that things are gonna get better IF, and only if, you put in the work to make them so.

I also used to dwell on loneliness and felt like things would always stay like that. I really pitied and felt sorry for myself. Stop doing that and go put that energy to making yourself better.

Know that only you have the power to get yourself to a better place and nobody else can do it for you. Get out there and become the accomplished man you want to be.

yeah, I was thinking of staying home drinking and playing video games tonight.

I though about it and said " fuck this" still going out anyway. I did last night, I got a hot 18 year old facebook ( I know, I know it's just a facebook and they give it out to everyone)

but i took it a step further and i asked for her number. got the no resoponce, but i still did it.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
