You have to just keep trying (and trying again) in life. You need to look at each moment with fresh eyes. Sometimes you just need some sleep to reset yourself. You may want to try giving yourself some more attention. When you are down in the dumps the most is probably when you give others more attention than you do to yourself. So you may want to try giving yourself some more attention. Do something just for you, like a massage, a nice, warm, bubble bath, a special type of food that you never get to eat, or whatever else makes you happy. Take a moment to yourself to splurge and regain your self-confidence.

Even though times may be tough for you right now, you may feel like just a few changes will make a huge difference. If you try to pamper yourself at least once a week then you may find that everyday struggles are much more manageable.

Keep strong and be fearless.

Here are 30 encouraging quotes to inspire you and make you smile when you're upset and depressed so that you can get the strength you need to keep going. Everything will be OK and you will soon find your own happiness.
