Looking From The Bottom Up
The phrase “Looking from the bottom up” refers to anyone who has encountered difficulties in life, which includes all of us. Your mind betrays you in the worst way when you are down there struggling day to day. We frequently become blinded by the light of our thoughts. Our thoughts lead to many broken relationships, failed projects, bad choices, and obviously poor financial decisions. These are merely a handful of instances where things can go wrong when we’re at the bottom and looking upward.
Even William Shakespeare came to the conclusion that “to thine own self be true.”
The truth is that we have all experienced difficulties in this thing we call life. In comparison to our thoughts, there is a second truth that is even more deadly. It’s our ego and pride. I’m convinced that negative thoughts, inflated pride, and irrational ego have not served us well. Ego and pride can be as harmful as nuclear weapons.
Maybe the human race’s quest in life is to dare to live from the bottom up.
Looking From The Bottom, Hearing From The Basement
I sometimes feel so defeated that I’m at a loss for what to do. Yet, I continue to write. Despite having significantly more wealth than I do by American standards, many people look up to and admire me. Life is incredibly strange. Sadness is an uncomfortable feeling. You’re not dead, and questionably alive. No one knows your prison or knows of your silent tears. Suffering like a heart too broken to fall apart.
When you’re looking from the bottom up, a gust of fresh air could be the key you need at that moment. The nights are long, but so are the days especially when you’re at the bottom looking up.
This bottomless pit has turned into depression. Even though I’m tired, I can’t sleep. My memory fails me, and most of my days are filled with feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. Who or what can save me from this nightmare? Depression is real In fact over twenty-one million Americans suffer from some form of depression. But, no matter how cold and dark you might feel, help is available. Because those symptoms of depression are treatable.

How Your Thoughts Can Lift You Up
It’s safe to say that because our thoughts influence how we feel, they also influence some aspects of our reality. According to experts, the average person has 60,000–80,000 thoughts per day. That is equivalent to 2500–3,300 thoughts per hour on average. The sad truth is that 90% of those thoughts are the same thoughts as the day before.
This is just one of many factors that make it more difficult to get up and move on when you’re down. But it’s not impossible. Your life might not ever change unless you come to consciousness and realize how crucial it is to control your thoughts.
Your life won’t significantly change if you think that your thoughts influence your destiny, which they do. Since the same choices result in the same behavior, that behavior then produces the same experience, which then results in the same emotion. Metacognition refers to the process of becoming aware of how you act and feel.
The good news is that we can now start to climb out of the hole. Because it is less likely for unconscious thoughts to pass us by unnoticed the more conscious we become.
Keep in mind that depression and other negative traits are frequently found in people with low energy or vibration. Therefore, become active, do something, keep moving, and look forward.Fall in Love in Paris with Empress Mimi

It used to be considered taboo to receive therapy for support, but not anymore. America is changing so quickly, and the temptation to live lavishly is always right in front of us. Problems arise from those shiny objects. when we don’t possess what society dictates we ought to.
Don’t delude yourself into believing your compromised thoughts for the sake of Christ, particularly when you’re down there.
Seek meditation and learn to be present at the moment, no matter how uncomfortable it is. It’s critical to learn to accept discomfort so that it doesn’t bother you.

There are numerous opportunities in life every day. These changes could be disguised as drama, peril, thrillers, mysteries, and more. It really doesn’t matter how they are presented, the most important thing is how we respond to them when they do. Some people succumb to their fear and give up. Some people become perplexed, agitated, and depressed before giving up. Higher-consciousness individuals, however, enjoy being amused and entertained. In fact, they eagerly anticipate what will happen next.

There are many different things that can wreak havoc in our lives. It’s never hard to find an excuse. The one constant about excuses is that they never, ever change the situation or your condition. When you’re looking from the bottom up, it is imperative to have a positive mental attitude.
As Dr. Dyer would say so often, “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Higher-conscience individuals engage and endure this way of life. Focusing on what’s right and how it can be improved requires the same amount of energy as focusing on what’s wrong.
Everybody experiences bad things occasionally. They frequently occur when least expected. The loss of a loved one, divorce, job loss, discrimination, and other things. Each of those setbacks has a variety of justifications for why it resulted in the situation it did.
