What to Do When Life Keeps Getting Worse and Worse

My life isn’t in a dark place anymore. It got better.  It can get better for you too.

Sometimes it feels like life just keeps getting worse and worse, and just when you think you’re starting to make progress on something, you have another setback and fall back down the stairs and keep falling, falling, falling.

But you won’t fall forever.

First, make sure you’re not unknowingly sabotaging yourself.

When things are already going wrong, it’s easy for things to just keep piling on because we let things go or unconsciously start to sabotage things. We tend to do this when things are going well too, because we get scared that things are “too” good to be true and panic.

So, is there anything you can do to prevent things from getting worse? Is there anything that needs your attention now before it becomes a problem? You want to be proactive about taking care of yourself and finding solutions to problems as they arise, rather than letting everything pile up and become overwhelming.

Take on one problem at a time. Either fix it or forgive it. Is there anything you can do to make it better? If not, do you need to just process your feelings, forgive someone, or give yourself time to heal? Do what you need to do for each thing that demands your attention, and make sure you’re prioritizing problems so you take care of the most urgent issues first.
