It has often been said that depression is when someone is living in the past and anxiety is when someone is living in the future. Being human means experiencing new things all the time and making choices and decisions that have far-reaching effects. Most people are just doing there best with what they know at the time. Everyone has things in their past they wished they’d done differently. And no one knows the future. If you find yourself depressed or anxious, the solution is to live right here, right now. Accept yourself and tell yourself “I am doing my best with what I have and what I know.” It might not look like it, but that is all anyone is doing. Welcome to being human!
