There is a thing that happens consistently, I think its DEPRESSION related where everything gets too hard and shit is stacked on top of shit and we get overwhelmed.
So, when if you broke things down to one problem at a time and someone give you some contacts or solutions you would generally think they could move/motivate themselves to take that first step, but what really happens is by then they can’t see beyond the overwhelming DEPRESSION to help themselves.
But they can’t!
I think it’s okay to be DEPRESSED. It happens. It’s OK to admit you are and definitely to ask for help.
It’s not okay to sit and wallow too long and when given the tools to wait to be rescued.
There is a great sense of achievement to take the first step and make a call.
It’s hard to make decisions when you are DEPRESSED. But when you do, it makes it easier to do the next thing.
I highly recommend not just the method of putting out ‘spot-fires’ but picking the quickest and easiest solution to help boost morale.
I know I make it sound so easy. And it’s not, but onward and upwards.
