depression, and low self confidence.

by amjad

I am 22 years old, since 3 years ago, I fell into this situation, a lot of thinking, and depression. Every time I try to get out of it, I step two steps, and fall again ten more steps, and it gets worse every day. I used to be a strong kid at school, but since this situation came, I am just getting worse.

No matter what I do, I still can't run away from it. I can stay at home for days and never go out even to get cigarettes. I used to study at uni, then I left it and went to a pilot academy, and as always, when am at the middle, I just lose it.

Now I am in Jordan, and life here is really bad, sick, and nothing to make you feel better. I wish I could go back to Canada, if my parents will let me, but I don't think so, because I have been in jail once here for weed smoking, but really, they use it as medicines in different countries. I am sure if I went back to Canada, a far better place, better people, I will get out of it.

Finally, I wouldn't try to search about this site unless was really helpless.

Low self esteem and depression
by: Kay

Thank you for contacting Positive Personal Growth. The first thing I want to say is have you contacted a doctor for help with your problem? From what you tell me you have done really well in your past, but for some reason that you don't mention things have gone from bad to worse and now you feel trapped in this unwanted situation.

This may sound harsh, but each of us has freedom of choice. We choose to have what happens in our life even though we are not happy with the choices we make. No one can get inside our minds and decide for us. We can adjust our responses to suit others even though we aren't happy to do so, but always we have the right to say no when we choose to.

With this in mind you can if you are totally determined, and stay very strong minded, give up the life style you have now, even while you are in a place that you don't like. Your parents are more likely to say to come back to Canada when you can prove to them that you have turned your life around. You should be able to do this, if you choose to, no matter what part of the world you are in.

Look inside yourself, the young man you were in the past is still within you, and you can be this way again, but you have to choose to be, no one can do this for you. Your thoughts are your own, and if you can pull yourself out of these low feelings you have and try really hard to better yourself, you will.

Don't dwell on depression and what you can't do, this just brings more negativity into your life. Look to the future, and what you are going to do, how you intend to be. Bring hope into your life, feel good about yourself. Prove to yourself that you are better than the life you have now. The choice is yours. Only you can do this.

Become positive,
Stay positive,
Good luck,
