Because you deserve to smile!

There’s nothing worse in this world than feeling badly about yourself. There are days that can turn into dark clouds because of how we feel. You can be very self-critical, afraid of failure, or just plain sad.

But those negative thoughts and feelings that are created from your feelings of depression and sadness make doing even the smallest of tasks seem so draining. Feeling depressed is no joke; it can really be a big burden to carry around with you. That's why it's important to steer clear of depression quotes and focus on positive quotes instead.

When this is personal and you don't know your self-worth, it can really take a negative toll on you. It is hard to be your own biggest cheerleader and is sometimes easier to be pessimistic than it is to be optimistic. It's so strange to think that but it's true.

And once more and more of those pessimistic thoughts creep in, the worse you become at snapping out of them. It takes some help to be able to bring yourself back into the light. 

Sometimes some simple words can bring you out of that funk. When you read something that is so relatable or perhaps speaks to your soul, it can really make a difference. It makes you realize that others have gone through what you are feeling at the moment, and you realize that if they got through it then you can too.

Words can be uplifting and inspiring and give you the dosage of motivation that you so desperately need. Once you start to feel your confidence and strength start to come back, you really do see the light at the end of the tunnel.  

So if you have been feeling down lately, look no further! Here are 11 positive quotes to lift you right back up when you’re down in the dumps.
