It can be hard to pull ourselves out of a rut when we're feeling down on ourselves, no matter the age. We may have negative self talk, poor body image, or even outside forces telling us we need to be a certain way. This article we found details other ways you may be able to relate. https://psychcentral.com/blog/when-your-mind-keeps-telling-you-youre-a-failure/

When feeling down, try these tips:

-Get exercise in some way.

-Take one thing at a time.

-Accept your thoughts. Then work on changing them into more realistic thoughts.

-Redefine failure. Celebrate small successes as well.

-Surround yourself with people that build you up.

-Seek professional help if it becomes too much. There's nothing wrong with asking for help to better yourself for a better you.
