Learning To Help Yourself


Whatever you are struggling with one of the biggest and most difficult steps is the realisation that you need to help yourself. By not helping yourself you will never be able to resolve or recover from whatever you are going through and you don't have the opportunity to have so much more.

Before anyone else is able to offer help you need to help yourself, let people know that you're struggling. If this sounds like you here are 5 things that can help you improve your situation.

1. Understand you need help and look for it.
Whether you are struggling with depression, debt or a legal issue there are people and charities out there that can help. Their aim is to support you in the best way possible and help you get your life back on track.

2. Talk to a close family member or friend that you trust.
It can be really difficult to tell the people around you that you're struggling but these people care the most for you and only want to love and help you, so let them! Let them support you and offer their advice if they have any to give. It will help you feel a lot less alone.

3. Realise you are important.
You have your whole life ahead of you, and you are really important in shaping this world and playing your part. No two people are the same and your life is valuable! Don't waste it, want more from your life. You deserve a good chance at life so let yourself into all the opportunities so you can have one.

4. It's never the end.
It may feel like everything is towering over you and there's no way out but it isn't the end and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel (even if it is a long tunnel!). There are so many times when I felt like it was never going to all work out and it did. So if something doesn't work out the first time try, and try again.

5. Don't blame yourself.
Blaming yourself will not fix anything! All you can do now is improve the situation you can't go back and change it. It's very likely that by blaming yourself you'll be convincing yourself that you don't deserve help because you're in the wrong. No one is perfect and life will never be plain sailing.
I hope this post is helpful, if you are in a situation in which you are struggling please seek help. I have listed a few charities below which offer support for various issues.
