There are times when no matter how much we try, we feel that the universe is working against us. It seems like the goal we are trying to reach is pushing further away from us. This often makes you feel hopeless, and you could end up having depression. You get this urge to be rescued from your own life, but do you know what’s lacking? It is the fact that you are not taking full responsibility. You must accept all the choices you made and then decide if you want to bring changes or not. These steps might help you figure out how to take control.
Every moment is an opportunity for you to start new with a different set of mind. So, take a deep breath and believe that it is all in your head. There is nothing sillier than having a superstition that God or Universe is against you. Maybe, the time wants you to hold your ground and learn a lesson, which is why it is difficult.
Know what you want. You are always pretty sure what decision you want to take, deep inside your heart. Believe in your gut feelings and stick with it. Fight for what you want as it is your life and nobody else’s. Write about all the things you want
There are a million things to do in this world, and you must be enthusiastic about it. Have gratitude that what you have in your life is amazing and do all that which can make you happy. I know there are responsibilities, but there must always be a time when you can find a way to enjoy still being you.

Stop cribbing about all the misfortunes that have come over you as it will only magnify your already existing problems. Complaining only exaggerates the problems and could even make them bigger. We should have a discipline that we don’t choose to have expectations that cannot be achieved by someone else until and unless they want to.
