HAPPINESS COMES FROM THE INSIDE
How do you stay so positive?
You have to really choose to be positive. It doesn’t come naturally all the time! I think that I’ve just really learned that being negative about things will get you nowhere. I have my days but I surround myself with positive people. I think the key is who you surround yourself with.
What is the key to achieve happiness every day, from the moment when you wake up?
I think that people achieve happiness differently. It’s really hard to choose to be happy when certain things in life are trying to tare you down, but I think it’s really important despite what life throws at you to really try.
You do things that make you happy. Surround yourself with people with a similar outlook on life or similar beliefs. Take time for yourself!
Don’t live your life for other people! Care for those who care for you. Do good. There are so many things to say on happiness because helping people achieve that is a goal of mine in life! I stay happy by making others feel happy.
What is a good advice for someone who is suffering from mental health?
I think this is a very sensitive subject and not one to be taken lightly. I think this isn’t something so general because there are so many different forms, but one of my favourite things to overcome anxiety is read a quote to myself .
As for depression and other mental health issues, they’re scary and I just want you to know anyone readying this you have survived all your bad days up till today. You got this.
Hold onto anything that makes you happy. Don’t hide alone in your room. Get out push yourself to breathe and to live and to find the good. You’re not alone. I promise you.
Why do you think that, nowadays, people with mental health issues are younger than before?
I think society has changed. I’ve talked to my grandma and other adults about mental health and some of them don’t really get it because they’ve never had it, truly.
It’s really sad, and I don’t want to be read the wrong way, but I feel like more and more people use phrases like “omg I’m having anxiety” or “ugh I’m so depressed” and its unfortunate because I feel like half the people saying it don’t even know what they’re really saying or talking about. So for the people who really struggle with it, it makes it harder for them, us.
What would you say to someone who is struggling with insecurities, loneliness and lacking confidence?
You have to feed yourself with love! Love yourself! I know it’s so much harder said than done. I do have insecurities among many other people in this world. But there are two types of insecurities to me:
The ones we can change, but we just have to be motivated to do so. The second kind, are what we most likely can’t change. You gotta own those. Stop comparing yourself to others. Stay positive. I promise the right people will love you for who you truly are.
As for loneliness, don’t isolate yourself on purpose. Don’t stay in your comfort zone, you won’t find any growth there! Not everyone that you lose in your life is a loss. Grow to love being with yourself. Find good people!
Which are some of the quotes that you live by?
I have probably over 50 quotes screenshoted in my phone. I live by so many! i could have a book full of my favourite quotes…
A few are:
“Do the best you can until you know better, then do better.”
“Leave people better than you found them.”
“You are where you need to be, take it in.”
Would you want to do motivational speeches or write a book about what you have learned through life?
I would love to write a book maybe one day! I feel like I have so much to say and share that people really wouldn’t even see it coming. I would also love to do motivational speaking! Maybe one day…
FINDING LOVE IN GOD’S ARMS
How is your relationship with God?
A huge part of my positivity and happiness comes from God. It evolves everyday. I owe all I have and all I am to him.
I’m not perfect and I have had times where I felt very distant from God, but I’ve learned that the more you pray, the more you want to pray.
Do you think that loosing your mom at such a young age made your relationship with God stronger?
I do, I think when you lose someone so significant at anytime (if you’re religious) it can go two ways: it can pull you away from God or push you so much closer.
Personally I know a lot of people get angry like, “how could this be God’s plan for me? I prayed so hard! He didn’t answer my prayers”. I learned at a young age that sometimes God’s answer is “no”.
I chose to have faith. Through the toughest times in my life I look to him. It’s hard, but in the long run I do believe it made my relationship with God stronger.
What do you do when you want to relax and disconnect, when you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed?
I like to go outside on a walk and I love a good chilly evening walk. Fresh air is everything to me.
If I can’t go out I will take a bath, I like to be alone. Depending on the situation, sometimes I just want to go be with my best friends. If I do want to be alone I watch Youtube videos, my favourite vloggers. or write in my journal.
Which has been the main lesson that life has ever taught you?
LIFE IS TOO SHORT! Losing my mom and many others in my life so far has truly taught me life is WAY too short. Too short to worry about things we have no control over. Too short to spend it doing things you don’t love. Too short to be stubborn with our hearts. Too short to hold grudges. Tell the people you love that you love them! Drop your pride.
Be generous. Be kind, and gracious to everyone. We’re all going through something.
